The Battle Belongs To the Lord

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

Every believer standing for their marriage should burn the practical truths of James chapter 4 in their hearts. It speaks of why we fall; and how we can be lifted up. The Breakup: What causes wars and what causes fighting among you? Is it not that your passions are at war against your members? You desire and do not have; so you kill, and you covet and cannot obtain; so you fight and wage war. Sounds like a spat to me. For those who have gone through the pains of marital battles, this is not nation pitted against nation, but […]

The “other person” can be one of the most difficult aspects of standing for your marriage, but make no mistake, a counterfeit is never a satisfactory replacement for the real deal – YOU. Your spouse is deceived, and deception is a tool of the enemy. That same enemy (Satan, not the other person) […]

The Power of the Tongue – Part 1

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 19, 2017

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21 Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2 WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT SPEECH BEING A SKILL? How painful are honest words! But what does your argument prove? Job 6:25 The lips of the righteous bring forth what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked what […]

Who am I, Lord?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 14, 2016

Most mornings in the growing season you will find me outside shortly after dawn watering my garden veggies and the flowers, then sitting on the back patio to read a daily Bible reading and “contemplate life.” For several days this past season the question “Who am I, Lord?” was persistently on my mind. I have learned that when thoughts are persistent I should pay attention. It could be something I need to address in my own relationship with the Lord or with Carolyn. It could be a topic that needs to be written for covenant keepers. We all ask that […]

One October morning ten years ago in Pennsylvania, Marie Roberts Monville received the devastating phone call that changed her life and that of their three young children and her community forever. Charlie Roberts called her to say “I’m never coming home. Give my love to the children and to my family. I left you a letter on the dresser. The police are already here.” When he did not wait to hear her pleas to stop what he planned and come home to talk, she heard the phone go dead. She had a sinking feeling that something very wrong was happening. […]

Know that God is Faithful

I had been working for a company that went bankrupt, but not before the Lord directed me to quit just days before it happened. I was the only one who got my back pay! As God would have it I turned on the radio to Charles Stanley as I was driving to work for the last time. He was in mid-sentence saying, “Even Jesus knew when to leave…” Ha! I applied for a position at an agency. The owner said since I did not have a computer she did not see that there would be a position for me. A […]

A Warranted Warning

“11About this we have much to say, and it’s hard to explain since you have become dull of hearing, 12for though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God; you need milk not solid food. 13For everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the Word of righteousness since he is a child. 14But solid food is for the mature for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.”  Hebrews 5:11-14 Consider the “Toys Are Us” commercial…“I […]

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 3, 2015

Joy Mountain was great good fun! We called on God to take charge and He sure did! We had a full house in that beautiful facility near Hot Springs, North Carolina. We had perfect weather. The fellowship was wonderful, the speakers were anointed, the worship was anointed and the home cooking was delicious. On Friday, Susan Marvin spoke about how a covenant keeper can wash their spouse’s feet by respecting and loving the spouse while they are in the far country. That night we also had a marvelous time celebrating Rex and Carolyn’s 50th wedding anniversary. Rex and Carolyn’s daughter […]

A “Will Do” God

Do you remember when you were a child and your earthly father promised to do something or take you somewhere, but for some reason he couldn’t do it or he didn’t do it? You would say, “But you promised!” Well, we have a heavenly Father who promised and WILL DO. We can go to Him and say, “You promised that those who fear the commandment of the Lord will be rewarded. You promised that he who walks with wise men will be wise. You promised that a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of […]
