Edifier du Jour-Acts 16:6-13(NASB)
6 They passed through the Phrygian and Galatian region, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia; 7 and after they came to Mysia, they were trying to go into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them; 8 and passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas. 9 A vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing and appealing to him, and saying, "Come over to Macedonia and help us." 10 When he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. 11 So putting out to sea from Troas, we ran a straight course to Samothrace, and on the day following to Neapolis; 12 and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city of the district of Macedonia, a Roman colony; and we were staying in this city for some days. 13 And on the Sabbath day we went outside the gate to a riverside, where we were supposing that there would be a place of prayer; and we sat down and began speaking to the women who had assembled.
I remember a playoff game of two decades ago, the Lions were playing San Francisco in the NFC semis; Detroit was down one with a few seconds left and set up for a winning field goal. Coach Monte Clark was seen praying on the sidelines prior to the field goal. Murray missed the field goal and Detroit lost. After the game, some reporter went up to Clark and pointed out that his prayer must not have been answered. Clark replied that the prayer had been answer-the answer was "No." God doesn't always answer prayers in a positive manner; he can also block us from things in order to have us available to do something else. I was prepared to get a permanent job at Hurley Medical Center a year ago; all that was needed was for HR to get off its keister and start the hiring process. After a rather pokey pace of searching for (largely non-existent) qualified alternative candidates, in March I decided to send off some resumes to colleges-the result was a great job here at Warner Southern, something that wouldn't have happened had the people on the 6th floor been a bit quicker. So, don't always take a door shut in your face or a rejection letter as a setback, it might also be getting you a step closer to where God really wants you to be.
