Ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land; but if you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall come to pass that those which you let remain of them, shall be pricks in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein you dwell. Numbers 33:52-55. See this fulfilled. Judges 1:17. Judges 2:14. Manasseh did not drive out the inhabitants of Bethshean, and the Cananites would dwell in that land; so that they, the Israelites, could not any longer stand before their enemies.

The very same is to be observed in the holy and spiritual battles of the Lord. He that fights only against outward sins is but very little, if at all, acquainted with the dangerous enemies in his heart, or the deep corruption of original sin, and so the tempter may easily gain an advantage over him. Experienced Christians guard more against the inward assaults of wickedness; they are at peace with no sin, but keep up a constant war with all their most subtle and darling lusts, even when they appear under spiritual disguise.

O Lord, give me grace never to spare myself or any of my sinful lusts and passions, but to destroy them without delay as soon as they begin to move or stir, that I may not be destroyed by any.

Forgive my guilt, O Prince of Peace,
I’ll wound my soul no more:
Hence from my heart, ye sins, begone,
For Jesus I adore.
