2 Chronicles 34
2 Chronicles 35
2 Chronicles 36
Acts 16

I have always found Acts 16 to be filled with actions and demonstration of faith.  Even the founding of the church in Philippi is exciting as Philippi was one of the leading cities in what is now Greece and was renowned for nearby gold mines. 

Did you note what lead to the founding of this church?  It was Paul allowing the will of God to overcome his own desires. 

Acts 16:  Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia. When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas. During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 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. 

What an example for us today!  Through the inspired Word of God we often “know” the “right thing” to do but will still follow our own plans?
