Proverbs for Those Standing on God’s Promises Ephesians 6:14

Want to know something interesting? Standing for a righteous thing has the same elements regardless of what that thing is. I’m glad we have a one-size-fits-all-God for all of our needs. These are my proverbs, what are yours? God’s timing is the most overlooked part of a miracle. Coincidence is just God doing two things at once. You’ll never have a better opportunity to know God, than in an extended trial. God steps in when it is only Him-possible. There is no better place to be than in the center lane of God’s will – regardless of the situation. You […]

Question Everything?

What do you believe? Why? As we and many people around the globe start into the holiday season, do you wonder why we believe and observe holidays? Do you ever question your religious beliefs about the holidays? Consider the one coming this month during October. Ah, Halloween–the celebration of witches, ghouls, goblins and trick-or-treating. Did you know that present day Halloween started thousands of years ago in the land of the Celts (Ireland / Wales) Rural farmers knew they needed the sun to make their crops grow. As the days shortened in the fall they were afraid that winter would […]

Empty Your Mind

Want to hear from God? Empty your mind. Find a quiet place and empty your mind. In thoughtful prayer ask God to speak to you. Wait patiently and when you are ready to hear He will speak. He will speak when He knows you are ready to hear – not necessarily when you think you are ready to hear. When I do this exercise immediately it seems that ten thousand thoughts invade my consciousness to demand attention. Do you think that is “normal?” Have you ever seen an opponent or fan at some sporting event trying to distract another and […]

Enduring

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • July 24, 2017

Enduring is not a skill we readily run to. For it pushes us out of our familiar zone. Yet enduring is a necessary ingredient to complete our faith. It takes a holy promise and hangs on 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 its source is mere human, it can only do what great humans can do. If it is powered by God Himself, […]

  • May 17, 2017

HOW IS THE WILL INVOLVED IN OUR SPEECH? You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. Deuteronomy 6:7 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Joshua 1:8 You have […]

Forgiveness is Tough – Part Two

Part one of this series was last month’s topic. If you missed it, you can find it on our web site under archived articles or click the link “Forgiveness Is Tough, Part One.” Based on the responses that came to the office after part one of the article was published, I can see that forgiveness is a tough topic for many people. Why is forgiveness so hard to accomplish? As stated before, Satan uses all the emotions associated with lack of forgiveness to maintain a hold over you. Hurt, anger, resentment, hate, and suspicion are just a few of those […]

Shield of Trust Prayer 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 1, 2017

When you don’t understand, God invites you to lean into Him and to trust. The following prayer guides you how to pray holding up your shield of trust, regardless of what is going on around you. Father, when things are shaky or dark and I don’t understand, I redirect my focus to Your great heart of love for me and Your power and presence. When I don’t know what to pray, I trust Your goodness. Ps. 31:19, 34:8, 100:5, 119:68, 136:1, 145:7 I trust that You are sovereign. You have all authority and all power. Matt. 28:18 I trust that […]

The Battle Belongs To The Lord

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 24, 2017

I have learned that we are to set our minds on the things above and not be entangled by the fights, the reactions, the hurts of this earth. The next time your loved one is losing their cool – venting on you – pray in your spirit to swiftly place you in the heavenlies. See their hurt, do not feel their words. Do not receive (and it is a choice) the darts of the devil which would cause you to personalize what is said. Thank God for your gift and it will shine when He gives you the ability to […]

The Armor of God

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 18, 2017

The Christian life is a warfare, a spiritual conflict. We are told, first of all, to put on the full armor of God so that we “may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:11) We put on armor because we are in a real battle against a real enemy. Spiritual warfare is serious business and the Lord does not want us to be defeated. Trying to fight life’s daily battles without putting on the full armor of God will bring about defeat and discouragement in our lives, and we will not last long in […]
