Now What Lord? – Part 2

When I came home from the doctor visit where my pregnancy was confirmed, my husband did not share my joy. The devil had stolen his joy. I couldn’t believe it! I also started noticing that my husband was paying special attention to our very young and single secretary. We hired her right out of high school and encouraged her to go to church with us. We wanted her to join the youth group but she said she wasn’t ready for that. Now I was seeing that Satan had set a trap for the two of them. The following year and […]

Even If…

In 1 Peter 5:6-11(ESV), the Bible states: Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, […]

Spirit of Abortion

This is an article previously written by Marilyn in 2001. Perhaps you had a dream to do something for God and you put time, effort and prayer into the project and it failed. Perhaps your relationships never seem to endure. They are short-lived both loved ones and friends. Something always happens to hinder your relationships such as strife or disappoint. Maybe you seem to labor under unstable living conditions. You sow much time and energy into jobs or other financial projects and they never seem to work out. Many others have lost job after job and your living conditions are terrible. […]

Look What God is Doing

USA CA: I just have to praise God for His provision. For the past year I have felt that I was to do work on our home and God has provided the resources to do it. I recently had to replace my front door and screen door but my regular handyman use was unavailable. I found a new workman who has been such a blessing. I had to special order my door, but he is charging me almost nothing and offered to do some repairs for free. He explained that he takes care of his kids when his wife works […]

Hope – Part 1

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 7, 2019

The Lord has ministered to me that covenant keepers need encouragement, and He impressed upon me to share with you about hope. Since beginning to stand for our marriages, we have all had someone say to us, at one time or another, “Don’t get your hopes up,” or “You don’t get anything by hoping.” God’s Word encourages just the opposite; He wants us to get our hopes up. In fact, the Word puts prime importance on hope. Hope is the first step in marriage healing. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for.” Without hope, we have […]

When You Don’t Know What to Pray

Have you ever been so burdened by a problem that you say “I just don’t even know what to pray?” When the circumstances of life seem too big or complex to comprehend, shift your focus to who God is by praying God’s character. For every circumstance I believe and proclaim… God is sovereign. All authority and all power is His. Matthew 28:18. Nothing takes Him by surprise. All circumstances serve Him. God knows the end from the beginning. Psalms 119:91, Isa 46:9-10. His word is forever settled in heaven. Psalms 119:89. God does all things for our good and His […]

God’s Point of View

  • December 11, 2018

One day I was reading in Mark, chapter nine, where Jesus rebuked Peter. The words He spoke to Peter really jumped off the page of my Living Bible! “Satan, get behind me! You are looking at this only from a human point of view and not from God’s.” Jesus had just shared with the disciples about the terrible things He must suffer, and that He would be rejected by the elders and the Chief Priests and the other Jewish leaders. He would be killed, and He would rise again three days afterwards. He talked about it quite frankly with them so […]

Chosen to Display God’s Redemption Story

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 4, 2018

Each CK’s story is unique, but there are often similarities woven through each one when shared. While keeping covenant with our spouses, each of us has suffered loss, struggled with God’s timing as we’ve waited for our prayers to be answered, and dealt with thoughts of betrayal. We continually need to be reminded that Jesus sees our pain and is doing something to help us in all those areas. Our stories of loss and heartache may be different on the outside, but the grieving and wrestling with “a marriage that is no longer” often have a similar storyline from one […]

Thanksgiving and Praise – an Offensive Weapon

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 22, 2018

I’ve been thinking about all the things each of us has for which we should be thankful. It is always amazing to me that, when a group of people is asked why they are thankful, the room fills with silence. May this never happen to our CKI family! There are hundreds of reasons why each of us should continually be in a posture to give our Jesus praise. Even if you do not have a thankful heart, you can choose to rejoice in all that Jesus has done for you. Think of praise as an offensive weapon that should be […]
