Although there are many [instructors] who teach how you should ask angels to give you a sign, it is not biblical. Some ask, isn’t this what Gideon did in Judges 6:36-40 when he put out a fleece? The first time Gideon put out a fleece, he asked that in the morning the fleece would be wet and the ground around it would be dry. The second sign he asked for was that the next time the fleece would by dry and the ground around it would be wet.
The sign Gideon was asking for was something miraculous. It was not like asking your angel to give you a sign like a feather or something that does not require a miracle. Gideon is not asking his guardian angel for a sign. He is asking God.
It is important to note that Gideon did not put out his fleece to learn what God wanted him to do. God had already told him what to do, but Gideon put out a fleece anyway. The first fleece was a sign of unbelief. Gideon knew what God wanted, but he didn’t believe it and didn’t want to do it. When Gideon set out another fleece, it wasn’t to determine God’s will either. Rather, it was asking God again to prove his promises. Here, the Bible is not teaching that this is what we should do to find God’s will.
