How Did Gideon Tests God?

gideon-tests-god

Gideon doubted that God would deliver his army from the enemies. He tried to test God by asking him to make the wool of fleece wet with dew but the dry ground in the next morning. In the second time, he tested God by asking him to make the ground wet with dew but the wool of fleece dry. It happened as he prayed. It is wrong to test God. God does not like us to test him but sometimes he will respond through prayer when we complain to him. This is because God is patient towards us. He is merciful and compassionate and always ready to help us when we pray to him.

Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, as ye tempted him in Massah. (Deuteronomy 6:16 KJV)

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. (Matthew 4:1-11 KJV)
