What does Deuteronomy 7:17 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Deuteronomy 7:17

If thou shall say in thine heart
Should have secret thoughts arise in the heart, misgivings of heart, fears and doubts there, which, though not outwardly expressed, might be inwardly retained:

these nations are more than I;
seven to one, and perhaps anyone of them as powerful as Israel:

how can I dispossess them?
of the land they inherit, and take possession of it.
