English term or phrase: Putting out fleeces - fleecing us
The man everlastingly seeking God's will gets run over by the man doing it. ***Putting out fleeces all the time can be the devil's way of fleecing us***. If Jesus said "Go," why should He have to repeat it to you again? Are you so special?

agree  JaneTranslates: Yes; the wordplay is lost, but these are the correct interpretations. The devil prompts us to keep testing God's will in order to keep us from DOING God's will.
