Joshua 11:16–23 and the Trinity

Joshua 11:16–23 (ESV)

16 So Joshua took all that land, the hill country and all the Negeb and all the land of Goshen and the lowland and the Arabah and the hill country of Israel and its lowland

What does Joshua 11:16–23 reveal about who God the Father is?

The Lord is sovereign. He chooses to show mercy to whom he will show mercy, and to harden the hearts of others. Salvation is entirely from God and based upon his decision to save, not any goodness in man. God is in complete control of history.
