Just as Joshua and Israel found great success in conquering their enemies in Joshua 10, God now grants them the same success against an even greater enemy in Joshua 11. In Joshua 10, Israel goes to war against five kings and their armies. In Joshua 11, all the remaining kings in the land of Canaan now unite against Joshua, so that their number was like “the sand that is on the seashore.” God’s ordinary design for the Christian life is that we often face challenges in a progression of increasing difficulty. The victories of our past serve to be training grounds for the next trial. And when fresh challenges arrive, God provides fresh grace and assurance.
