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 […]

Look What God is Doing

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 […]

Enduring 

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

Enduring is not a skill we readily run to for it pushes us out of our familiar zone. Yet, enduring is a necessary ingredient for the completion of our faith. It is the act of taking a holy promise and hanging on to it until it is fully baked. Enduring lasts longer than the challenge; it has a fight-to-the-death mentality. Enduring is measured by the value of its fulfillment, not the time and energy it takes to see it through. Enduring is fueled by its vision. If the source of enduring is mere human, it can only do what great […]

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 […]

ENJOYING THE JOURNEY – Part 1

I would like to share some of the things I have learned on my Covenant Keeping journey… WHEN I GOT THE BAD NEWS… During a meeting of the Smyrna, GA group, a gentleman started his story with, “When I got the bad news…,” at which time all in attendance broke into laughter because we, too, so well-remembered that moment in our lives! No one can possibly understand that devastation and mourning without experiencing it. We who have walked through it can recall, in great detail, the loss of our beloved spouse and all that the loss involved. The mourning seemed […]

Hope – Part 2

This is the second installment from the book Hope by Marilyn Conrad   HOPE OR DEFEAT? Life can be tough and painful. God did not promise that we would never have challenges or difficult times to go through. When these times come we find out what is on the inside of us. Do we choose to grow better or get bitter? Do we choose to speak the Word over our situations or let our situations overcome us? Do we choose to believe what God says or do we believe the lies of the enemy of our souls? Do we choose […]

Hope – Part 1

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 7, 2019

The Lord has ministered to me that covenant keepers need encouragement, and He impressed upon me to share with you about hope. Since beginning to stand for our marriages, we have all had someone say to us, at one time or another, “Don’t get your hopes up,” or “You don’t get anything by hoping.” God’s Word encourages just the opposite; He wants us to get our hopes up. In fact, the Word puts prime importance on hope. Hope is the first step in marriage healing. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for.” Without hope, we have […]

Covenant Keeping 201 – The Problem With Our Tongue

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 5, 2019

Last month I talked about how to tell if you really have forgiven. I pointed out that all you have to do is listen to what comes out of your month. Even though you may never forget what happened to you in the past, that has nothing to do with forgiveness. If you are still talking about a specific incident, you have not forgiven. Today, let’s talk about the tongue. Psalm 34:11-13 says, “Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Who is the man who […]

When You Don’t Know What to Pray

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • 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 […]
