When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. – Acts 16:7 (NIV)

We often hear of God opening doors, but what do you do when God closes a door? This is a clear example of Jesus stopping Paul from his plans to guide him to Macedonia, where Lydia was waiting to become the first Christian in Europe. What we may see as a dead end now may very well become the beginning of a new chapter in the story that God is writing on our lives.
