How God’s Guidance Comes to Us- Sermon Notes

“How God’s Guidance Comes to Us”

Acts 16:6-10

 
 
There is no principle more important than the principle of being able to be guided.
 
Guidable people always receive guidance from God.
 
“6 They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia; they had been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia. 7 When they came to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them. 8 Passing by Mysia they went down to Troas. 9 During the night Paul had a vision in which a Macedonian man was standing and pleading with him, “Cross over to Macedonia and help us!” 10 After he had seen the vision, we immediately made efforts to set out for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them” (Acts 16:6-10, CSB).
 
1. God’s guidance comes through obedience in the ordinary (v. 6).
Paul and his companions “went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia; they had been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia” (Acts 16:6, CSB).
 
2. God’s guidance comes through suddenly changing circumstances (vv. 6-7).
 
“A person’s heart plans his way, but the LORD determines his steps” (Prov. 16:9, CSB).
 
What we call circumstances is really the sovereign hand of God in our lives.
 
3. God’s guidance may come through supernatural events (v. 9).
During the night Paul had a vision in which a Macedonian man was standing and pleading with him, “Cross over to Macedonia and help us!” (Acts 16:9, CSB)
 
4. God’s guidance comes through wise counsel joined with common sense (v. 10).
“After he (Paul) had seen the vision, we immediately made efforts to set out for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them”
(Acts 16:10, CSB).
