Acts 16:6-15

Big Idea:┬áRarely does God give you a long term timeline for your life. So instead of asking questions like: “God, what is your plan for my life”, we should be asking questions like: “God, what are you doing around me right now that you want me to take part in?”

3 suggestions to help clarify God’s leading

  1. Get up and go
    • cf. Acts 15:36
  2. Leave room for God to change your plans
    • Yes – Macedonia
    • No – Asia
    • Bithynia – Not yet, not you
  3. Plan strategically to fill in the gaps
