Are you a woman who wants “more?” I am. I used to be afraid to say that because of how the body will make you feel guilty for wanting more. But the more I study the kingdom in the Word of God, kingdom principles, and advancing the kingdom of God, the more I am at peace about the desires God placed on the inside of me.
Joshua 15:16-19 “And Caleb said, I will give my daughter Aksah in marriage to the man who attacks and captures Kiriath Sepher.” 17 Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb’s brother, took it; so Caleb gave his daughter Aksah to him in marriage. 18 One day when she came to Othniel, she urged him to ask her father for a field. When she got off her donkey, Caleb asked her, “What can I do for you? 19 She replied, ‘Do me a special favor. Since you have given me land in the Negev, give me also springs of water.’ So Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.”
I see a different perspective in the text from the theologians who believe that Ak-sah is ungrateful. I see a woman who asks for what she knows her father Caleb has. She asks for what she perceives that she and her husband will need for the land. And she asks with right motives in her heart. Our Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills. You belong to Him through Yeshua. Ask Him for what He put on your heart.
I see Ak-sah as a woman who does her husband good and does not cause him harm all the days of her life. I see a man who obtains favor because of the good thing he has in Ak-sah. To me, Ak-sah is like the Proverbs 31 woman who makes sure her dealings are profitable. Are you that woman? See Ak-sah understood the season. During the time of the text, Joshua was allotting land for the tribe of Judah by clans. She had obviously contemplated the land, surveyed the land. She analyzed where it was situated and the benefit for having springs with the land which would be a water source to make the land rich and fertile and productive. This field may have kept her up nights because something on the inside would let it go. She may have even walked the land and saw the proximity of the springs and opened up her mouth and professed it over her and her husband’s lives. Axk-sah was a woman who wanted more. Because of you and your worth, you are an asset and not a liability. You are an upgrade for your husband. You are a woman who wants more. You are a woman worth far more than rubies.
