The Call - Paul's Second Missionary Journey

We pick up the story of Paul, who has a falling out with Barnabas, heads out to journey from Antioch and visits churches from his first missionary journey. Paul faces places that rejected him in order to encourage the new churches. These communities become the focus of his letter to the region of Galatia. Paul’s journey becomes one of suffering and love. He also goes to places he has never been before. Discerning God’s will is often a challenge to understand. We may think a roadblock is a message from God, a thought, a feeling and a sense of a call can get blocked. However, God’s vision for our lives is not simply about ease, it is about what is right. Where is God calling you? What are the roadblocks? Let’s follow God to the places we can be used by God to make an eternal difference.

Acts 16:6-10

6Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, 7After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. 8And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas. 9And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. 10And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavored to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them. (KJV)
