About-

“God’s got a plan for your life” is an aphorism frequently heard by Christians. But how do you discover that plan? The Spirit Said Go is designed to help believers find God’s will. Using Paul’s journeys in Acts as examples, Wilson discusses twenty lessons on guidance drawn from these journeys. Using his firsthand experience traveling along these routes in the Eastern Mediterranean, he reads between the lines offering additional insights into Luke’s account. He also provides important geographical and archaeological information to illustrate Paul’s world among the Jews, Greeks, and Romans. Wilson then illustrates each lesson with autobiographical vignettes drawn from his own spiritual pilgrimage of over forty years as a follower of Jesus. Friends and colleagues also share stories of similar experiences of guidance. Each chapter ends with reflection questions that help the reader integrate the lesson into Christian living. The volume offers an inductive Bible study combined with practical, spiritual insights regarding how God guides his people then and now.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Mark Wilson combines superb biblical and historical scholarship with intense personal warmth in this highly insightful book on God's guidance. It not only teaches us about the numerous and (often) surprising ways God guides us as believers, but inspires us to want to be guided by Christ. And all through a fascinating study of Paul's experience of guidance in Acts. One of the best books I've read on this subject!”

—M. Blaine Smith, author of Knowing God’s Will: Finding Guidance for Personal Decisions



“Mark Wilson brings fascinating insights into the journeys of the Apostle Paul.  Purchasing the book for just those would be worth it. But, he combines those insights with interesting and challenging views on how Paul heard from God illustrating each chapter with stories of how others have heard from God in a similar way. This book will encourage you, challenge you, and ask you to stop and listen to how God may be speaking to you.”

Jackson Crum, Lead Pastor, Park Community Church



"As a pastor of a local church I'm confronted regularly with urgent questions about the Christian life, but none more frequently than that of spiritual guidance: 'How can I know the will of God?' 'In what ways might I confidently expect God to guide me?' 'I don't want to miss God's perfect will for my life, so what should I do?' These are difficult but extremely important questions that all Christians face. Mark Wilson's

is a welcome contribution to the many books that attempt to provide biblical answers. It is rigorously biblical, pastorally sensitive, and eminently wise in the counsel given. Not everyone will agree with his perspective, but we should all give it close consideration."
