Cover – The ministry was my covering, a place to run to when the world, the flesh and the devil were telling me that I was crazy for standing. Overcomer – The ministry helped me to be an overcomer, I can do all things in Jesus who gives me strength. Victory – The ministry showed me that I have the victory if I faint not and believe me – I, like you, wanted to quit many times. Energy – The ministry helped me develop the Jesus kind of energy for my walk. Isaiah 40:31, I will wait upon the Lord […]

Our Heaven-Rending, Illusion-Busting God

In a world that appears at times to be spinning out of control, only to halt briefly for the purpose of throwing us off, it is encouraging to realize that this is just an illusion. Perception is one of those things that changes with time and wisdom. I have gotten old enough to hear the words every parent longs to hear: “You weren’t as lame as I thought you were. I have grown to appreciate what you were trying to tell me.” The world is using smoke and mirrors against the Body of Christ in the hope of compromising and […]

CANADA When CK took advantage of the prayer ministry at her church on Sunday, she ended up praying with a couple who previously advised her to “move on with her life!” This time, however, when she asked for prayer for restoration, they told her that her marriage was being restored and to not give up! Hello to everyone at Covenant Keepers!  Thank you for all you do. Keep up the good work which is so needed these days. Thank you, Koji and Deana Bell, for stepping up to the helm as our next CKI Directors! Stand strong everyone!   CURACAO […]

The Northwest Covenant Keepers’ annual retreat was held March 22-24 at Black Lake Bible Camp in Olympia, WA. Twenty-five attendees from Oregon, Washington, and Canada enjoyed being together in the amazing presence of the Lord. The group was especially blessed to have been joined by CKI Directors, Rex and Carolyn Johnson. The beautiful worship, book reviews, and door prizes added even more joy to the weekend of fellowship. The highlight of the retreat was the restored marriage testimony of Paul and Cynthia Beck.   Each CKer could identify with the account of their marriage “falling apart,” but their story of returning […]

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, […]

Reconciliation (Part 2) – Dealing With Strife by Destroying Offenses

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • March 21, 2019

Wisdom pales and understanding fades in the light of strife For fifteen years my marriage could be categorized as blessed and strife free. But then I allowed myself to become offended at my wife. The result was two years of strife, separation, and abandonment. Fifteen years of blessed communication were not even a memory in the heat of my offense. I had built a wall unknowingly that would almost claim the lives of both my wife and me through suicide. What happened? Why was I so helpless to overcome the hurts of strife? You will never grow spiritually beyond your […]

Reconciliation – the First Goal of Restoration

“I was so angry at God that I did just the opposite of anything that had to do with God.” In his own words, this man was deceived. His wife, who was left behind with their children, was struggling with depression and a spirit of suicide. But God had other plans for this family and He sent help for her as she cried out to Him in her despair. She eventually led a Covenant Keepers group where she was able to encourage others who were hurting as she had in the beginning. In the meantime, God was watching over this […]

Dear CK Friends, I’m writing you so that you do not to lose heart and to encourage you to rest in Yeshua and be confident in our Father in heaven. I have stopped counting the years that my husband left…a long time ago. I have peace because I know it is the will of God that I remain faithful to my husband in the good and in the bad times. God has shown me that I was very wrong in my mindset, in how I saw the world, and in how I acted. It hasn’t been easy. Yes, I cried; […]

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 […]

ENJOYING THE JOURNEY, Part 2

  • February 21, 2019

LORD, CHANGE ME IN THE WAIT As you grow in faith and begin to become more Christ like, you will be walking in His peace and love…exactly what our beloved spouses are searching for in the world. The Bible says that the things of this world do not satisfy. Philippians 4:4-8 says, “Rejoice and again I say rejoice. In everything through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your request unto Me and the peace that passes all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.” Choose to think on those things that are just and pure and […]
