Generations Ministries

Women-in-Covenant’s (WiC) mission is to equip women to walk in godliness so that they will embrace their God-given destiny and be empowered to reach out to others. This is in line with Covenant EFC’s mission to return the church to its disciplemaking roots through authentic discipleship and intentional disciplemaking.

Women are an anchor to the home and the church community. In the midst of the many demands of life, there is a need for women to be restored in their significance and security and to rebuild relationships through love and forgiveness, bringing healing to both home and community.

A key distinctive of WiC is the creation of a safe place for women to be real about their struggles, and to be willing to allow God to break into their lives.

The main platforms include the Women’s Breakthrough Weekend (in-person retreats) and the online equipping GROW series. There is sharing of the Word through plenary sessions as well as small group time for authentic sharing and accountability. Another key burden of WiC is the development of women leaders through small group mentoring, equipping sessions and service in the various ministry initiatives. Finally, WiC seeks to minister to women in specific phases and needs of life through small group support for women with special needs children and single-again women (widows and divorcees).

We invite women to come and experience community and deep sharing in our online GROW sessions as well as in-person Breakthrough Retreats.

Security in “Keilah” Discipleship Journey

Observation:

What significant observations can you make about God in verses 10 to 14?

Deeper Reflection
DAVID’S “KEILAH” discipleship journey (1 Sam 23:1-13) begins with David fighting for Keilah to save their lives (vv.1-5), but ironically, it ends with David fleeing from Keilah to save his own life (vv.12-13). When God spoke to David about saving Keilah from the Philistines, He gave him this assurance: “I will give the Philistines into your hand” (v.4). God kept His word and David delivered Keilah with a great slaughter of the Philistines (v.5). Then when David inquired of God if Keilah would surrender him to Saul, God’s word to him was just “They will surrender you” (v.12) – and nothing more. There was no promise of deliverance. No word of direction. No word as to what David should do next. All David and his troops did next was they “departed from Keilah and they went wherever they could go” (v.13). But the narrator calls for eyes of faith to see God’s presence and providence in this “wherever they could go”, which appears to speak of lostness and uncertainty. David faced almost constant danger from Saul, but he always “escaped” (v.13) – a continuity of David’s “escape” journey (1 Sam 19:10, 12, 17, 18; 22:1). Keilah would surrender David “into the hand of Saul” (vv.11-12), but “God did not deliver him into his hand”, even though Saul “sought him every day” (v.14). David might be going “wherever they could go” with Saul pursuing him “every day”, but he was secure in God’s hand.
Application:

How will I live in situations when all I can do is to go wherever I could go?

Write a prayer to God as your response from your meditation on and application of the Scriptures.
