Judges 6:36 Gideon said to God, "If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised—37 look, 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."38 And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.
Isn't this like most of us when "bargaining" with the Lord? God if you will do this for me, I'll serve you forever! For Gideon, it was a bowlful of water that changed everything...for a minute. He then went on to ask God to make the wool dry and the ground wet! Can't you just see the smile on the face of God?
Walking in faith requires you and I to simply trust and obey...there is no other way to be happy in Jesus than to trust and obey.
Choose to let yourself believe in all that He said He would do in His Word and stand upon those promises. Like Gideon, when you are just getting started you may need a sign. You might need a bowlful of water. Pray that one day you can be that bowlful of water for someone else!

You know what Joe that scripture is so true. If you ask God for a sign to know if you are going in the right direction he will give you one.

How true this passage is especially for me. As an emergency room nurse my days are so demanding and challenging. I have to constantly trust and obey that Christ will see me through; working in a Catholic hospital means so much as well; thanks Joe

Yes, I agree that God gives more signs to young Christians.  The Word says" the just shall live by faith" and as we walk with Him and years go by and we spend more time in His Word and we are given words from Him it seems the more we are stretched to more faith and less signs

 Hi Joe, thanks for your words of wisdom.


 I believe I have done my best to stand on God's promise for my marriage,I have had to let go of my husband of 31yrs. But I have been confused, I am feeling terribly lonely,and at times I don't know If it is okay to want to get to know other men. My confusion comes  in ,not knowing to wait for my unbelieving husband. We were married both Catholic ,I became born again when we were married for 5yrs. I don't profess to being perfect thru out  but I have always wanted to work things out.  Joe are you a pastor or are you in ministry of some sort?
