The Choice is Yours

Take inventory. Thoughts will either bind you or free you. They either tell you what you can’t do or what He’s already done for you. They proclaim victory this side of the Red Sea or defeat because life is too hard. They either jump into what God is doing at the moment or worry how the rest of life will end up. They will either dive into “what’s next” or shrink back at the water’s depth. They will either proclaim, “Anywhere with You” or “All I have is little ole me.” They will either increase you or decrease you. They will either seek to know God or […]

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 […]

The Seed Is On Schedule

Mark 4:26-29 (MSG) Then Jesus said, “God’s kingdom is like seed thrown on a field by a man who then goes to bed and forgets about it. The seed sprouts and grows—he has no idea how it happens. The earth does it all without his help: first a green stem of grass, then a bud, then the ripened grain. When the grain is fully formed, he reaps—harvest time!” When you plant a seed you believe that it will produce a harvest. That is the only reason that you would plant seeds – for the harvest. The harvest comes in stages. […]

Societal Value Exchange

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • June 15, 2016

Many church and political leaders in our society have recently been allowing, and even embracing or promoting a rapidly accelerating exchange of biblical values. Former values based on self-sacrifice are being abandoned for self-serving values based on what seems to be a false definition of “grace.” I believe that this value exchange is destroying the preservative, salt and light nature of the church, and the godly preservative calling of moral and military world leadership that has been on the United States of America for the past two centuries. Paul, in 2 Timothy 3:1–5 in the Bible tells us: “But realize […]

Four Reasons Not to Pray – Part 1

  • April 18, 2016

In 1913 a Jewish Professor of Mathematics, to the amusement of his class, wrote on a black board a simple equation: E=MC2. Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. Thirty years later TIME magazine declared this formula had refash­ioned all of mankind. It is the key to the doorway of the atomic age. To this day we are in the atomic age. Man has discovered one power after another, yet none of those powers ever turned him towards God or made him like God. Rev. Fulton Oursler said: “It would take another kind of power alto­gether to make […]

Jesus Binds Us Together!

  • March 8, 2016

We’ve been married 46 years. The first three years were very stormy until we gave our lives to Jesus Christ. We are both strong-willed people and God is the only One who can control us! We realized we needed Him in our lives! Adding to our individual times with the Lord, we began daily Bible reading and prayer together. When we saw how much it helped us to grow in our relationship with the Lord and one another, we continued this special time through the days and years. These devotional times with prayer have kept us together! In the morning […]

Attitude

If there was one gift I would leave with others, it would be a positive spirit. It cost nothing to have this mindset, yet it has great value in lifting the hearts of those around us. Like a pebble tossed into a smooth pond, something in our attitude resonates with the hearts of those around us and the rippling effects extend all the way to the shoreline. We think we are private people, but our mindsets expose so much of where we are. It is as if the DNA of our hearts infiltrates every fiber of our being and broadcasts […]

Perseverance

In the USA we recently observed the anniversary date of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. Those catastrophes claimed thousands of lives and affected many more thousands. It was the direct result of evil forces at work. As a nation the USA came together and addressed the issue. We fought back and continue to fight evil terrorism. We will persevere as a nation. As a believer in covenant marriage you may have had the “unthinkable” happen. Your marriage was attacked and possibly fell. Perhaps it is still there but like a building damaged […]

Over The Top

Once in a while we re-do an article from the archives and this month I chose to go back several years to a short and simple illustration. I am not sure of the origin so I cannot give proper credit to the original author, but I do give my thanks to them for a wonderful, thought-provoking concept. What Equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been in situations where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 101%? […]
