But Manasseh did not drive out the people of Beth Shan or Taanach or Dor or Ibleam or Megiddo and their surrounding settlements, for the Canaanites were determined to live in that land.

– Judges 1:27 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

This account of Jewish settlements in the Promised Land have a message for us as well. The Canaanites were supposed to be driven out of the land in order for the people of God to experience peace, yet the Canaanites were determined to stay. Don’t expect the unwanted areas of your life to change without a fight—they have been active for years. Yet as we continually come to the throne of grace to receive the grace that we need, we must keep fighting the sin that so stubbornly hangs on.
