Last year, in the midst of Covid lockdowns we also were surrounded with road construction. Seriously, whether north, south, east or west there was either a road block or a road closure.
We never knew which road or when. So, we all took our chances and then texted to warn our friends… you can get out by the north gate, watch out for Mapleview; it’s closed again! It was a harrowing time.
God too, uses roadblocks. Paul and his companions knew where they wanted to go, but God stopped them. They weren’t allowed to preach in the province of Asia, or Bithynia. They don’t say how they knew this. They just couldn’t get into those places.
During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.(From Acts 16:9-10, NIV)
God knows what we don’t. Can’t get that new job? Can’t get to that doctor? Whatever the road block, remember that God sets our feet on the path we should go. Don’t fight him on it.
