We knelt to pray

Acts 21:1-6


1 After we had torn ourselves away from them, we put out to sea and sailed straight to Kos. The next day we went to Rhodes and from there to Patara. We found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, went on board and set sail. After sighting Cyprus and passing to the south of it, we sailed on to Syria. We landed at Tyre, where our ship was to unload its cargo. We sought out the disciples there and stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. When it was time to leave, we left and continued on our way. All of them, including wives and children, accompanied us out of the city, and there on the beach we knelt to pray. After saying goodbye to each other, we went aboard the ship, and they returned home.





Lessons Learn

The Lord showed these brothers what would happen, but they did not what was expedient or what Paul’s calling required because their gift did not extend that far. The Lord wanted his servant to be warned, partly so long meditation would prepare him to suffer whatever was to come, and partly so his perseverance might be more obvious when he was warned of the unhappy outcome and yet still hastened to endure whatever would happen to him.
