NOVEMBER: MONTH OF TRIUMPH AND THANKSGIVING - Exodus 15:1-2

1.“Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. 2. The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. When the Israelites left Egypt for the Promised Land, “God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though it was shorter, for God said: ‘If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.’ So, God led the people around by the desert toward the Red Sea” (Ex. 13:17-18). From the above, we can say the following: Facing the Red Sea was an act of God, perceived by Him to be the easier way out for the Israelites. God knew that they would face the Red Sea, which He preferred to facing the dangerous Philistines. As the story continues, the Egyptians pursued the Israelites to the Red Sea, but God miraculously dried up a path in the Sea and the Israelites crossed on dry land with walls of water on their side. The Egyptians followed the Israelites into the Sea, but the Lord, who had created the road in the Sea, closed it and they all perished in the Sea. When Moses and the Israelites saw this wonderful deliverance, they busted into singing the Popular song of Moses (Ex. 15). This month, God will grant us triumph over the flood waters which have covered our land in Nigeria by sending His Strong East Wind to move the waters backward for the people to operate on dry land. In this month, all the Red Seas that have become great obstacles before us will give way so that we can get to our Promised Land of normal operations. In this month of November, we shall all sing songs of Triumph and Thanksgiving because whatever difficulties are pursuing or advancing against us shall be subdued by the prevailing power of our Almighty God and KING.

History of Nigerian Baptist Convention

Baptist work in Nigeria began with the appointment by the Southern Baptist Convention of America of the first missionary to the country, Rev. Thomas Jefferson Bowen in 1849. He arrived Badagry, Nigeria on the 5th of August, 1850. From 1914, Baptist work entered a new phase with new initiatives and significant progress in growth, geographical expansion, the founding of new institutions and agencies, increase in the work of missions, and the development of a remarkably successful plan of financial support.
