Manage your Storage

Recently someone called Rex’s cell phone to tell him that they could not leave a message on my cell phone because my phone message center was full. Almost simultaneously our daughter sent me a text because someone had called her because they couldn’t leave me a message. I told Rex I had never deleted a phone message because I didn’t even know that that they could be deleted. Since I didn’t have even that knowledge I sure didn’t know how to do it. I had over three years of phone messages in storage. My storage was full. That is the […]

Watch Out For Those Stealth Sins

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

The enemy’s goal is to come in through the side door unannounced and get us off course. He wants to blend in with our day-to-day routines and get our focus on things other than the Lord. Here are a few that color themselves as only “being human” yet don’t honor God a bit. Quick acknowledgment and repentance will sweep these critters out of the path. Discontentment – a spirit which has a natural dissatisfaction with anything Self-elevation – (I call it “selevation”) drawing attention to yourself. If your heart is screaming “look at me,” then you probably haven’t been looking […]

Miraculous Provision

Eight years ago, my life was suddenly interrupted by an unwanted divorce from the man I’d loved for 20 years. We served in ministry together during many of those years and raised our children in the faith. Through God’s amazing grace, we began dating again five months after the divorce and were remarried a year later. Before long, however, the ongoing spiritual battle for my husband’s full surrender to God and the influences of the world resulted in yet another separation. Through the ups and downs of our relationship, I have grown in my faith in ways I never thought […]

“But if not…”

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

Do the names Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah bring back memories of Sunday School lessons as a child? If not, how about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego? Most of us remember their names and the story of the fiery furnace. If you do not know the story or the details are hazy I urge you to read the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Their story and that of Daniel (called Belteshazzar by the Chaldeans) is one of absolute faith in their God – to the point of death for disobeying the Chaldean king in whose service they had been placed.

Come on up…in The Spirit

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • June 22, 2015

I resolve myself to add life to my covenant keeping brothers and sisters in Christ, and no longer allow them to wallow in their sorrows. “God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.” I John 1:5 Not that there aren’t trying times or hurdles in this world to jump, but we must always remember that they do not affect the spirit in us. We need to identify with the spirit man; that incorruptible seed God has planted within us. Not the soul that grabs hold of the darkness and whips us into a fearful frenzy. It’s […]

Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians Chapter 5 Love – This is the unconditional, one-flesh love that is not broken by action or deed of the other person. It is the commitment to serve my loved one in the Lord through anything. I will take on the mind of Christ and agree that “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” I repent of past thoughts and deeds that operated out of the flesh and did not exhibit this ever-giving fruit. Joy – This is a result of the abiding in the love of God. Through Him who loved us, we overwhelmingly conquer. And “neither […]

Unkink the Garden Hose of Your Blessings

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

As a child playing outside did you ever grab a garden hose to get a drink? Full force from the tap was probably too much water at once so you would deliberately bend the hose double and squeeze – or “kink” – the hose to reduce the flow. Maybe you just turned the tap a fraction to get a trickle, but where was the fun in that? Especially since you could quickly pass the hose to a friend or sibling (usually younger) and simultaneously let go of the kink. Then you had to run. The garden hose analogy was brought […]

Heart Warming

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 29, 2015

It is not until our hearts are joined with His that we have a complete heart. Anything less leaves a spirit seeking for what’s missing.     God is looking for open, receptive hearts that He may enter in and give life. The devil is looking for a wounded, bitter heart that he can sneak in and take life (steal, kill and destroy). Continually guard the gate of actions and thoughts with the question, “Does it honor God?”   A heart that beats with God’s is one that is ripe for agreement. To say what He says and do as […]

How can you…?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 26, 2015

How can you sin if you are surrendered? How can you hurt when you are so busy helping? How can you be double-minded if you have a made-up mind? How can you enjoy the flesh when you live in the Spirit? How can your befriend the world when your best friend is Jesus? How can you win in the flesh a battle that was meant for the Spirit? How can you control what was not meant for your control? How can you say you don’t have faith, when it is a choice? How can you just cope if you are […]

On Which River Do YOU Live?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 13, 2015

While teaching in Africa once, the Lord gave me a picture depicting the management of financial resources. I saw a huge snowfield in the mountains with virtually an infinite supply of water. There were three rivers emanating from this snowfield. On the first river, lived a man whose experience of life was such that he never quite had enough water. Life experiences had confirmed that to him. So, what did he do with the water coming down the river? He built a dam in the river, and collected all the water that he possibly could. No water was ever able […]
