Blessed Journey

You’ve probably read this story many times. Paul sets out on his second journey then,

Acts 16:6-8 (The Message) They went to Phrygia, and then on through the region of Galatia. Their plan was to turn west into Asia province, but the Holy Spirit blocked that route. So they went to Mysia and tried to go north to Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus wouldn’t let them go there either. Proceeding on through Mysia, they went down to the seaport Troas.

Having decided to give my two cents worth on this interesting passage I did some research to see what others have said. Most of the commentaries I read seemed to want to tell why the Spirit blocked the route. Many spoke of God’s timing being different from ours. One even suggested that Paul had some unconfessed sin that prevented him from going into Asia (western Turkey).

My question is; Why does it matter? Why does it matter why the Holy Spirit blocked the route? I think what matters is we stay on the journey because the journey in holy. The journey is blessed. Jesus invites us to follow him. That is all that matters. Jesus taught. Jesus healed. Jesus prayed, Jesus forgave sins and Jesus showed us God’s love.

Lord Jesus, help me walk with you daily. Teach me to look at you until I can look out on the world with your kind of eyes. Amen!
