Read: JOSHUA 15: 13-19
“She said, ‘give me another gift. You have already given me land in the Negev; now please give me springs of water, too’. So, Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs” (Joshua 15:19, NLT).
aleb had given his daughter land in the Negev. The Negev was a dry arid land located in the Southern region of Jerusalem and Judea. It takes its name from the Hebrew word ‘Negev’ which means dry. The Negev was a dry wadi (dry riverbed) surrounded by mountains with no water at all most of the year. Caleb’s daughter realised that there was very little she could do with this type of land. Her father had given her an incomplete inheritance. So, she demanded that he make the blessing complete. She said, “give me another gift. You have already given me land in the Negev; now please give me springs of water, too”
It is okay to ask God to complete and perfect that which He has begun in your life. If He has blessed you with a good wife but you are yet to have children after several years, ask Him to give you children to complete the blessing of a good wife. If He has given you the gift of singing, ask Him for opportunities to bless lives with your voice. If He has blessed you with the gift of teaching and healing, ask him to open doors of opportunities so that you can minister to a hurting world with your gifts. You can ask for the blessings of promotion, upliftment, opportunities and breakthrough in your work, business, or ministry.
In which area of your life do you see an incomplete blessing? What is required to complete the blessing? Why not ask the Lord today to complete and perfect that which He has graciously began in your life?
