Women of the Word: Achsah

achsah-wotw

Achsah is mentioned in Joshua 15:16-19, Judges 1:12-15, and 1 Chronicles 2:49. She was the daughter of Caleb and later married a guy named Othniel. Here is what Achsah can teach us.

1. Achsah asked. For whatever reason, Achsah wanted a blessing, land in the South, and springs of water. She asked her father for these things and he gave them to her. Matthew 7:7 says: “Ask, and it will be given to you…”

Much like Achsah asked her earthly father for the things she wanted, we can ask our Heavenly Father for the things we need, want, and desire. Do not be shy. God wants to hear from all His girls.

But do not only come to Him when you need a blessing. Come to Him every day at any time. When you need mercy, need grace, or need help, come boldly to His throne and you will find it there.
