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 […]

Covenant Keeping 301, Strife – A Profound Principle of Keeping Covenant

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 2, 2019

This is another in a series from the beginning of 2019 in which we are discussing major principles of keeping covenant.  The first two principles dealt with forgiveness and our tongue. My former pastor, Billy Joe Daugherty, wrote a small book titled Overcoming Strife – The AIDS Virus of the Spirit. Wow, the title alone will preach! Strife resides in our spirit, talks to our mind and comes out of our mouth. So it is a condition of our heart that reveals itself to others when it escapes through our mouth. Does this sound familiar? That was exactly the same […]

Success is…

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • March 26, 2019

Success is taking every thought that is generated from past hurt captive and purifying it with the mercy-giving blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Success is realizing that being alone with God isn’t so lonely. Success is receiving life’s circumstances as a personal challenge from the Lord, to utterly rely on Him regardless of the situation. Success is running first to the Lord Jesus with my cries for help, instead of to a friend who could never stand as God’s proxy. Success is carrying on a conversation with my spouse that is noise-free of past mistakes or personal justification. Success […]

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; […]

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 […]

When You Don’t Know What to Pray

  • January 8, 2019

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 […]

I firmly believe this is the most important article I have ever written. My life has been changed by writing it and I know your life can also be changed if you will listen and read carefully. I have prayed and asked the Lord what He wants for CKs in 2019 and believe He has stated we need to go back to basics. Some of you have not been with us long enough to have been taught the basics. Some of you have been around so long that you have forgotten or are now overlooking the basics, so I believe […]

What Can I Do When My Spouse Is In Adultery? – Part 2

  • November 29, 2018

  Avoiding the Judgment Trap If Satan is unable to get someone to sin, he will attempt to have them judge that sin in another person. Judgment and unforgiveness block healing and affect both you and your mate. In Genesis 18:25 and Hebrews 12:23 God is referred to as THE JUDGE of the earth and of people. Judging is passing sentence on the actions of another. Throughout scripture God reserves this right for Himself. Only God has the right to judge others. Allow the Holy Spirit to be your judge. Often we are tempted to judge and condemn ourselves, but […]
