“Then he said to Him, “If now I have found favor in Your sight, then show me a sign that it is You who talk with me.”
-At first Gideon; just like Moses doubted that God would use him to deliver the Israelites from the Midianites & asked for a sign. Gideon felt inadequate saying that he was the least in his fathers house & his clan was the weakest in Manasseh’s tribe. He requested for a sign/confirmation that it was God Who spoke to him & the angel of the Lord consumed the sacrifice that he offered to the Lord & vanished, but Gideon still doubted. He then asked for another sign but this time it was conditional. He requested that the woolen fleece he placed on the threshing floor should be found wet while the ground should be dry, & the Lord accomplished it. With unending doubt in his heart, Gideon requested for yet another sign that this time; the woolen fleece should be found dry & the ground wet, which was also fulfilled & he believed. Gideon like many among us have not placed their complete trust in God & have certain reservations that they need confronted through signs. God has made many assurances through His word & has told us that He will never leave us nor forsake us & calls to put our complete trust in Him.
We have no doubt Lord that You love us with an everlasting love, we thank You. We surrender our lives unto You Lord for we are inadequate without You. We believe that You dwell in our hearts Holy Spirit, remain in us for we need You at every moment of our lives. You are the Beginning & the End Father & You designed our destinies before the foundations of this world, lead us always in the way we should go. You have promised us that You will never leave us nor forsake us Father, remove all doubt & anxiety from our hearts merciful Father, we place all our trust in You. May Your goodness & mercy follow us all the days of our lives & we will dwell in Your house forever. Amen
