The Cocoon

Posted May 22nd 2007, 10:57 by Covenant Outreach Ministries on Prophetic

For you, brethren, have been called to freedom; only do not use freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another" Galatians 5:13
THE COCOON
There are many today in the Body of Christ who are experiencing a dark place much like a cocoon. The dictionary defines a cocoon as: an oblong ball or case in which the silk-worm involves itself, formed by the threads which compose silk.
The word "involve" means: to envelop in any thing which...

A War of Words

Posted May 17th 2007, 01:05 by Covenant Outreach Ministries on Prophetic

Dick Mills (www.dmm.org) has taught that as we put on God's armor, we are putting on the Lord Jesus. In Ephesians 6:11-17 we are encouraged to put on the whole armor of God piece by piece; and each piece describes an attribute of Jesus. So as we put on God's armor, we are putting on the Lord Jesus Christ.(Romans 13:14)
As we put on the belt of truth we are surrounding ourselves with Jesus, who is the way, the truth...

You Are Not Abandoned

Posted May 12th 2007, 09:55 by Covenant Outreach Ministries on Prophetic

Greetings and Blessings in His name!
If you have been in a place of change or transition, then you have probably also at times felt alone or possibly abandoned by the Lord. Situations in your life have come to marginalize you and leave you ineffective. But God has come to say to you that He never leaves you or forsakes you and He is always fighting for you.
Be encouraged as you receive this word presented to the Body...

longings awakened

Posted Apr 12th 2007, 03:49 by Covenant Outreach Ministries on Prophetic


God gently,
quietly
beckons me to
open my heart...
to risk
vulnerability...
to believe in Him
to believe He has chosen wisely
(as if He knows any other way)
He chooses love
honor
respect
kindness
understanding
peace
grace
joy
life
and yet I am afraid
afraid to believe
afraid to dream
afraid to fail
afraid of longings
afraid of disappointments
but there is a glimmer
of hope
of light
an awakening
Jesus
let me hold Your hand
Your perfect hand
Your scarred hand
Your healing hand
Your creative hand
lead me
love me
help me let go...
and begin
to live

Jeremiah 31: 1-9

Posted Apr 2nd 2007, 07:01 by Covenant Outreach Ministries on Prophetic

Jeremiah 31:1-9
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness." (Jeremiah 31:3, NIV)
Teaching kindergarten, I come home with many stories and laughter, and sometimes those moments are a lovely reminder of a characteristic of God. On a day as aforementioned, one of my Hispanic students had decided I HAD to go to her house. As I opened her van door for her to go home that afternoon, she threw her...

Love

Posted Mar 26th 2007, 06:16 by Covenant Outreach Ministries on Prophetic


Whether one looks on the Internet or searches through books and music, one can not help but realize how the world is looking for love. Sadly, many are looking for love in all the wrong places. Even we who know Christ, struggle with the concept of love and how it works in our lives.
One day when my little granddaughter stated that she loves me as much as God loves me, I found myself wondering, "Have I ever loved anyone that...

Toiling vs. Garden Tending - Pat Stark

Posted Mar 22nd 2007, 01:49 by Covenant Outreach Ministries on Prophetic


When we eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, even from the good side, we often find ourselves "toiling" or spinning our plates. Our work often feels hard and rarely fulfilling. We find ourselves striving against "thorns & thistles" of various kinds. It is weary and draining, even though we might get approval or some temporary fulfillment.
When we eat from the Tree of Life, we "tend" our particular garden. We co-labor with Jesus and...

Noah's Way Out Of The Wilderness

Noah's Way Out Of The Wilderness
Gen 8:6-19, Romans 5:3-5, Prov 25:11,1 Tim 4:14
We often talk about the "wilderness" or that time in our lives when it looks like God has turned away and it seems that nothing works out for us. Since we all experience wilderness "issues" at one time or another, it behooves us to discern this season and to understand when and how to exit. The most important thing to know, next to the revelation that...
