January 29 - Judges 1:11-15

11 From there they went against the inhabitants of Debir. The name of Debir was formerly Kiriath-sepher. 12 And Caleb said, “He who attacks Kiriath-sepher and captures it, I will give him Achsah my daughter for a wife.” 13 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, captured it. And he gave him Achsah his daughter for a wife. 14 When she came to him, she urged him to ask her father for a field. And she dismounted from her donkey, and Caleb said to her, “What do you want?” 15 She said to him, “Give me a blessing. Since you have set me in the land of the Negeb, give me also springs of water.” And Caleb gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.

This little story inserted here is a lesson in “You don’t have because you don’t ask.”  How often do you think what you want to ask for is out of the question?  Sometimes with men, it is not possible, but when we are talking to God, it is always possible!  It might not be best, but it is always possible.  Never forget who God is.  There is nothing outside His ability.  Be sure you are asking in God’s will, and having full faith in Him.

What do you want to ask God to give you today that you thought was impossible?

Heavenly Father, I know nothing is impossible with You, but I also know there are things we ask for daily that could do us harm.  Help me to remember to ask completely believing, but also always wanting what You know is best for me.  I often say, “The answer is always no if you don’t ask”.  Help me to remember Your power, grace, and Your wisdom as I ask You for things.  The world sometimes dims my thoughts on what is possible and I don’t want that.  I know in my head You can do anything.  Help me translate that to my heart.  I believe, help me with my unbelief.

In Jesus’ name.
