How Badly Do You Want To Know The Truth?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 27, 2018

Are you willing to set aside all your filters and allow something new or foreign to come in? Are you willing to empty yourself of that which merely occupies in order to receive that which fully satisfies? Are you willing to get up on the Cross and stay there until all the impurities and toxins are burned away? Do you desire to know what God knows and follow His time-released path — one step at a time? Are you willing to forsake all others in order to achieve a great Prize? Do you trust Him to take care of all […]

Psalm 17:4-5  As for the deeds of men, by the word of Your lips I have kept from the paths of the violent.  My steps have held fast to Your paths.  My feet have not slipped. Psalm 25:15-20  My eyes are continually toward the Lord, for He will pluck my feet out of the net. Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. Look upon my enemies, for they are […]

It is quite normal for a Covenant Keeper to experience being with their spouse’s family for various reasons. Family members get sick and a hospital visit is the right thing to do. Children have birthdays and graduations from high school and college with a family gathering to celebrate an accomplishment. A family member dies and there is a funeral to attend. There will be reasons why you, your spouse and your spouse’s family will be together and many times this gathering happens in a small space making it impossible to ignore anyone. Often your spouse will be there with the […]

Peace

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 1, 2018

What an elusive thing. Everybody wants it, but few understand or want to do what it takes to receive it. Peace is more than rest. It is subjecting everything to the will of God. It is allowing the Holy Spirit to strain every self-flesh thing out of us. It relinquishes its grip on the things of this world. Peace is always on the move. From one side of our character to the other, exposing that which corrupts the soul. Peace is an infusion of God’s grace to do what increases life in spite of a trial. Peace is the container […]

Overcoming Evil with Love “You have heard that it has been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, that you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue you at the law, and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two. Give to him that asks you, and from him that would borrow of you turn not away. You […]

With your life? Through thick and then? Til’ death do you part? Are you willing to run after the One who loves you as much as He does His own Son? Are you willing to live in all the fruits of the Spirit including long-suffering? Are you willing to receive all God has for you? To enjoy the blessing as well as overcome the testing? Are you willing to say ‘I do’ to His request in obedience of integrity? Are you willing to love God more and your feelings less? Are you willing to trust faith over facts? God over […]

Becky Morrison is a friend of the Johnsons. Becky and her husband Tommy host a party every year at the end of the Families Are Forever conference at their home on Lake Wylie for all the Covenant Keepers who attend the conference. Becky recently did a devotional at the Lake Wylie Community Bible Study (CBS) about grace. This article is taken from her devotional and applicable to how every covenant keeper should live their life, especially in extending grace to their spouse. Today I feel like I am to share and talk to you all about grace. Not because I […]

The Battle Belongs To the Lord

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 […]

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

  • 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 […]
