Judges 6:17New International Version (NIV)
17 Gideon replied, “If now I have found favor in your eyes, give me a sign that it is really you talking to me.
We see in the Bible, the story of Gideon’s fleece. A man who asked the Lord several times about confirmation about direction for his life and leading the people of Israel.
Their are always times in our lives that we seek confirmation from the Lord. We see in Scripture that God did not condemn Gideon for wanting confirmation, and I believe that still holds true for us today.
As we seek God for guidance and confirmation, we can ask these questions to confirm how God is speaking to us.
- Does it align with the Bible? God’s voice never disagrees with the written Word.
- Does Godly counsel agree? What are other men or your wife saying about the matter? Do not just go to those who you think might agree with you.
- Does peace reign in your heart? Do you have peace in your decision?
Maybe today you are looking for confirmation in some situation in your life. Allow these 3 principles to direct you in your decision.
