Exodus 23:29-30 KJV
I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.
 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.
One of the things God did for the nomadic Jews was to put fear into all those towns/cities they approached. Some got so afraid, the sent Peace Delegations ahead of Israel’s arrival in their territories.
With all these, one would think Israel would solely occupy the land promised them.
Well, it didn’t turn out that way. The land (promise) was so vast that they had to co-exist with some of the people they came to drive out of the land.
God allowed it. In His wisdom, He made the take-over a gradual process not a one-time event. Sometimes you may have to co-exist with unfriendly parties to succeed.
It could be an unwanted/unfriendly partnership, but surely you know it will give you the leverage you need to eventually stand on your own someday. Please Take it!!! The opportunity may be long gone before you realise it.
Have a blessed day.
