Weekly Newsletter of First Baptist Church of Midway

Current Sermon Series

  There's the side of you everyone else sees, and then there's the real you. Tired of keeping up the facade? Join us for Masquerade.

Last Sunday:

    Masks. We all put them on to hide who we really are. That is hypocrisy. God wants us to be real about who we are and where we are with God. It's so easy to put that mask on, to hide, but God wants us to be real and unmasked.
  Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Sunday:

      We continue our series Masquerade by looking into Self Deception.

Facing Life's Obstacles

Joshua 1


As Joshua stepped into Moses' giant-sized sandals, he faced the biggest challenge of his life-bringing the Israelites into the Promised Land. The responsibility was huge, and we can surmise from the Lord's repeated commands to "be strong and courageous" that he was probably not feeling up to the task.


At one time or another, we all face obstacles that seem insurmountable. The question is, How will we respond? Some people try to push through or manipulate their way around the barriers, while others wallow in hopelessness and give up in defeat. But the Lord wants us to trust Him to remove each impediment.


Every obstacle that stands between us and God's purpose is subject to His supernatural power. Most of us would readily agree that nothing is too difficult for the Lord, but fear and worry reveal our doubts. By focusing on the problem, we allow it to grow and block our view of almighty God.


Knowing the difficulty of Joshua's assignment, the Lord assured him that he would be successful in completing the mission. God's responsibility was to remove every hindrance that stood between the Israelites and the land He'd promised to give them. Joshua's job was to believe the Lord and carefully obey all His commands.


Obstacles are one way that God strengthens faith. When you are confused and cannot see how He could work out your situation, do not walk away in defeat and miss His blessing. He wants to teach you His way of obedience, trust, and courage. Believe Him; He always keeps His promises.
