OBEDIENCE – do what is necessary

Judges 6:
37 prove it to me in this way. I will put a wool fleece on the threshing floor tonight. If the fleece is wet with dew in the morning but the ground is dry, then I will know that you are going to help me rescue Israel as you promised.  (New Living Translation)
Was Gideon really testing God, or was he simply asking for more encouragement?In either case it is clear that Gideon’s motive was right (to obey God and defeat the enemy).
