Wesley's Notes for Joshua 11:6


11:6 Hough their horses - Cut their hamstrings that they may my be unfit for war. For God forbad them to keep many horses, now especially, that they might not trust to their horses, nor ascribe the conquest of the land to their own strength, but wholly to God, by whose power alone a company of raw and unexperienced footmen were able to subdue so potent a people, who besides their great numbers, and giants, and walled cities, had the advantage of many thousands of horses and chariots.

    IT REVEALS HOW POWERFUL AND GREAT ARE THE WORDS OF GOD.REGARDLESS OF THE MAGNITUDE OF THE FORCES AGAINST HIS CHILDREN,ONCE HE SPEAKS TO THAT SITUATION, WE SHOULD NOT LOOK AT THE FORCES AGAIN BUT FOCUS ON FORCE BEHIND WHAT GOD HAS SPOKEN BECAUSE HE ALWAYS MEAN WHATEVER HE SAYS AND ONLY SAY WHATEVER HE MEANS.I HEREBY CLAIM IT TO MY LIFE WITH FAITH THAT ALL FORCES OF EVIL AGAINST MY DESTINY CRUMBLE TODAY.
