YOUR WORD IS A LAMP TO MY FEET

I will place a wool fleece on the threshing-floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you said. (Judges 6:37)

Gideon

Was it alright for Gideon to ask for a sign? Wasn’t he filled with the Holy Spirit? Hadn’t he heard God’s voice already? What more did he want?

The fact that God granted Gideon’s request, does not mean He agreed with him. But God understands our human weaknesses and treats us with godly patience. God goes to meet us and meets us just where we are.

So to “put down a fleece” and ask for a sign time and time again, is this right?

God gave us His Word as a light for our path and a lamp unto our feet (Psalm 119:105). If God’s Word is God’s will for your life, He will guide you by that Word. That is no mysterious or magic act. It means: walking with God.

Whosoever follows Him, communicates with Him and keeps His Word, will be guided by Him in all truth.
