Rivers of living water …

Joshua 15:1-63
‘The land of Negeb’ had little water. The request was made – ‘Give me also springs of water’. The request was granted. Trusting in the Lord’s promise – ‘the heavenly Father will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him’, we receive His blessing – ‘rivers of living water’ (19; Luke 11:13; John 7:38-39). ‘The people of Judah could not drive out’ the Jebusites. We may contrast Judah’s failure with Caleb’s faith – ‘the Lord will be with me, and I shall drive them out as the Lord said’. Learning from Judah’s failure – ‘Do not be conformed to this world’ – , we must build on Caleb’s faith – ‘Be transformed by the renewal of your mind’. Let us commit ourselves to doing ‘God’s will – His good, pleasing and perfect will’ (63; 14:12; Romans 12:2). Do His will. Let His ‘rivers of living water’ flow freely.
