"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your
ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, 'This is the way; walk in it.'" (Isaiah 30:21)

"The Lord says, 'I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.'" (Psalm 32:8)

Have you ever wanted a sign from God? And not only
a sign, but also confirmation that it is direction from Him and not just your own thoughts?

Gideon was Israel's fifth judge, and at one point he desperately wanted a sign from God. The Lord had called him to a large challenge, and he wanted to make certain he was hearing God correctly. So he put out a fleece, or sheepskin, and asked God to make it wet overnight, even though the ground around it stayed dry. The Lord granted his request, however Gideon asked for a confirmation the next night for the reversal of that to happen. Gideon, 'mighty warrior', got his answer when the fleece was dry and the ground all around it was wet.

We don't always have such dramatic answers to our seeking a sign. There are all different kinds of signs; some silly, others informational. Some make you think, and some give warning or direction.

God, though, is faithful to give us signs when we need them. Our job is to be alert and pick up on them. We have the Holy Spirit residing in us who is always on the job helping us to do that very thing. Thank you, Lord.

And that is good news.
