Godly decisions

1 Corinthians 16:5-7 NLT
[5] I am coming to visit you after I have been to Macedonia, for I am planning to travel through Macedonia. [6] Perhaps I will stay awhile with you, possibly all winter, and then you can send me on my way to my next destination. [7] This time I don't want to make just a short visit and then go right on. I want to come and stay awhile, if the Lord will let me.
哥林多前書 16章5-7節(NCV)

Acts 16:6-10 NLT
[6] Next Paul and Silas traveled through the area of Phrygia and Galatia, because the Holy Spirit had prevented them from preaching the word in the province of Asia at that time. [7] Then coming to the borders of Mysia, they headed north for the province of Bithynia, but again the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to go there. [8] So instead, they went on through Mysia to the seaport of Troas. [9] That night Paul had a vision: A man from Macedonia in northern Greece was standing there, pleading with him, "Come over to Macedonia and help us!" [10] So we decided to leave for Macedonia at once, having concluded that God was calling us to preach the Good News there.
使徒行傳 16章6-10節(NCV)
他們來到每西亞邊境,想要去庇推尼,耶穌的靈也不許。他們經過每西亞,下到特羅亞。夜間有一個異象向保羅顯現:有一個馬其頓人站著求他說:“請你到馬其頓來,幫助我們!”保羅見了這異象,我們就認定是 神呼召我們去傳福音給他們,於是立刻設法前往馬其頓。

馬太福音 6章33節 (NCV)

2 - Live with Godly character (His righteousness)

3 - Step forward in faith and humility

2 Timothy 1:7 NLT
[7] For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
提摩太後書 1章7節 (NCV)
因為 神所賜給我們的,不是膽怯的靈,而是有能力、仁愛、自律的靈。
