Acts 16:6-7 (KJV)
Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
That they were forbidden to go to Asia and Bithynia does not mean that God had no interest in those nations. We must not forget that Paul was not the only Apostle. Tradition places other Apostles in Babylon, India, and even China. God not only has a commission for us but a location for us. Far too often Christians assume they can be anywhere so long as they do what they are supposed to. If God has indeed fitted us for a church, then finding that church and fitting there ought to be a priority.
The Holy Ghost did reveal Apostle Paul’s next duty station. But it wasn’t an easy one. We must never assume that the will of God is the easiest path. The strait and narrow road is often uphill and rocky. Narrow tells me that there are few options on this path.
 I did check again to make sure I am correct. Matthew 7:14, it is the strait gate, not the straight gate. It is not the shortest distance between two points, but a passage that is often difficult and dangerous.
