Seek Confirmation

36 Then Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said, 37 behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece alone, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said.” 38 And it was so. When he rose early next morning and squeezed the fleece, he wrung enough dew from the fleece to fill a bowl with water. 39 Then Gideon said to God, “Let not your anger burn against me; let me speak just once more. Please let me test just once more with the fleece. Please let it be dry on the fleece only, and on all the ground let there be dew.” 40 And God did so that night; and it was dry on the fleece only, and on all the ground there was dew. ~ Judges 6:36-40

Gideon didn’t feel worthy, so he not only asked for a specific sign from the LORD, but he asked for a confirmation of his sign. The task set before Gideon felt like too much for him to handle, so he begged the LORD to confirm the sign he had just received. God wasn’t annoyed by this, nor did He leave Gideon there and move on. God honored Gideon’s request and sent Gideon both the sign and the confirmation.

Sometimes our call, our destiny, seems too unrealistic and large for us, so we doubt that we heard God right. Then we begin to doubt our own Salvation and faith when we question if it’s really God. But God tells us, through the Apostle John, that we must test the spirits. God wants us to test every word we receive so that we can learn the difference between His voice and the voice of the enemy. It isn’t a sin, and it doesn’t make us a ‘bad Christian’ to ask questions and seek confirmation. This is how we grow. Don’t let fear keep you from your call or from confirming your call when you doubt. Ask the LORD for a confirmation, and He will give it.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Seek Confirmation.
