February 13 – Acts 16
LOOK: Paul and Silas are on their missionary journey and they recruit a young Timothy. The Bible makes it clear that Paul and his entourage are led by God on this journey. They go to Macedonia as directed in a vision and meet Lydia who receives the Lord and hosts the group. Next they meet a demon possessed woman who made a living by fortunetelling. They cast out her demon and restore the woman. The people who make money off this woman throw a fit and have Paul and Silas arrested and beaten. God miraculously gets Paul and Silas free from prison and even the jailer gets saved and his whole family.
LISTEN: When reading this passage, I am impressed with how God guides and directs His servants. The important issue for God’s servants is obedience.
LEARN: Are you listening to the direction of God for your life? Be careful not to live the self-absorbed life common today. Walk closely with God and let Him lead.
