The Holy Spirit Leads

Timothy joined Paul and Silas in preaching the gospel. Luke wrote of some of their travels, “Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia” (Acts 16:6).
Why did the Holy Spirit prohibit them from going into that area? While the Lord wants us to go into all the world to announce the good news of salvation, it is also true that He controls where His workers go. He wanted the three-man team to go elsewhere and perhaps the Lord would send someone else to Asia, or perhaps the team could return later.
Let us never forget who runs things.
