"to drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you and to bring you into their land to give it to you for your inheritance, as it is today."
When we come to the Lord, we are freed from sin. That is only the first step in his plan for us, though. Freedom from slavery is great, but what do we do with that if we have no place to live? God knows, and we do too, that our land is full of giants too big for us to get rid of. This is where his strength comes through, when we begin to conquer those giants one by one in his power. Sometimes it's a Jericho time, when God simply says, "It's time to let that one go," and we obey, and see that old habit simply fall away without any fight. Most of the time, however, we have to take up our sword and shield and chase the enemy all the way out of the country.
