Paying Attention to Dreams

Reading in Acts 16:6-10, Paul and his companions are guided by the Holy Spirit as they travel preaching the Word. Paul and his companions were headed to Asia but the Holy Spirit held them back from going there.

We are told of a vision that Paul has during the night of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him to come over to Macedonia to help them (v. 9). Immediately, Paul and his companions got ready to go to Macedonia. Luke probably joins Paul as indicated by the “we” in verse 10 of Acts 16.

The Holy Spirit is with us today. Seek the direction given and with faith pray for the Spirit of Christ to lead. When the Holy Spirit gives us a vision, we should react in the same manner Paul and his companions did; with no hesitation.

I like to write inspirational poems. With poetry, thoughts can be narrowed down in just a few lines in a way that helps us take the guidance of the Holy Spirit and apply this guidance into actions. Here is a poem that I put into a video a while back: Blessings Throughout Each Hour.

This day with You Lord, we seek the direction You give us for a blessed day. As You give us instructions, there will be no hesitation because we have faith. As we meditate on the Word and pray today, we are open to Your Spirit leading us. We know this day will be amazing because we are putting Your guidance into practice. Amen.
