When God changes your plans

Read Acts 16:6-10

The plan was to go with Barnabas, but he's gone to Cyprus. The plan was to encourage existing churches, but he's being called to an unreached city. The plan was to cover familiar ground, but he's travelling to a new continent. God just changed the plan.

  1. How do you imagine Paul felt – leaving the security of having a guy like Barnabas around to encourage him and back him up – out on a mission that is no longer viable?
  2. How differently do you think he felt when he looked back with the benefit of hindsight?

Thank God that he is in control. And that he loves you more than you love yourself – and chooses what is better for you than you would choose yourself.
