a. Doubted God: “Let not your anger burn against me” (Vs. 39) b. Dishonored God: “Please let me test just once more with the fleece” (Vs. 39) i. Deuteronomy 6:16: You shall not put the Lord your God to the test, as you tested him at Massah ii. Luke 4:12: And Jesus answered him, “It is said, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test” 4. The from Fleece: “And God did so...” (Vs. 40) • Found in Scripture: (Just as you said) If HE said it, you can STAND on it! • Led by the Spirit: (Threshing Floor) If HE called you, you can COUNT on it! • Experienced Provision (fill a bowl of water): If HE provides it, you are to PURSUE it! • Examined your Intentions: (Please, Please): If He revealed it, you are to REST in it! • Confirmed by People: (all the people with him) If He endorses it, you are to ENGAGE in it! • Exalts the Savior: (and it was so) If He is glorified in it, GO after it!
Take Away: Throughout the Scripture up to Acts 1:26, the use of the fleece or lots were documented, but no more references to such after Acts 1:26. Why? THE HOLY SPIRIT RESIDES IN US GIVING CLARITY AND CONFIRMATION TO US!
