Faith: Our Link to Promise and Victory

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me.” - Galatians 2:20

The life of Joshua in the Old Testament is an illustration of Jesus. As a matter of fact, Joshua is the Hebrew name of Jesus. The Lord Jesus is our heavenly Joshua who leads us into the land of promise and victory. And what is this victory? It is a victory of faith.

There is nothing more, nothing less that will achieve the victory in our lives but faith. Victory is not achieved by fighting. Victory is received by faith.

You see, when God has a gigantic task He wants us to perform, He gives the contract to faith. Your faith links your nothingness to God’s almightiness and victory is yours for the taking!


Father, thank you for the faith you have given me that I can trust in and depend upon you no matter what I face in life. Increase my faith so that when obstacles come my way, through your power I can overcome them and claim the victory you have in store for me. In Jesus' Name, Amen!!


Hurricane Dorian Update
from Baptists On Mission

Hurricane Dorian caused several tornadoes and a lot of damage to some parts of the Outer Banks. Continue to pray for people who were affected by Dorian and for our volunteers. Right now we have set up and are doing recovery out of Atlantic, NC to serve Cedar Island, which had lots of flooding. We are working out of Atlantic Missionary Baptist Church.

We have also set up a mass feeding and recovery site at Cape Hatteras (staying at Cape Hatteras Baptist Church) to serve Hatteras and Ocracoke areas. Kitchen 3 unit is cooking today on Hatteras (food is being taken by boat over to Ocracoke). We have 4 large shower units, laundry units (3 of them), generators and water tanker units all serving on Ocracoke right now.

As you pray, pray for those who were affected by the storm. Pray for God's protection and comforting hand upon their lives. Pray for wisdom, strength and sensitivity on the part of those who are responding. For more information, go to Baptists on Mission.
