“They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia” (Acts 16:6). Luke records times when travel plans were changed due to being forbidden by the Holy Spirit or not being allowed by “the Spirit of Jesus” (16:7). Paul then has a vision from God to communicate an open door not forbidden by the Holy Spirit. Elsewhere we read of Paul wanting to visit people but being “blocked by Satan” from doing so (1 Thessalonians 2:18). Am I the only one who finds it tricky to know whether it is the Holy Spirit who is forbidding or Satan who is blocking my plans?
