    Do you have more than you can handle? - Ep. 245

    Do you have more than you can handle? - Ep. 245

    Do you have more than your fair share of troubles?
    Do you think you are having more than you can handle?
    There is a popular cliche that says that God doesn't put more on us than we can handle.  I know that is not correct. 
    he Bible simply doesn’t say that God will never put more on you than you can handle. This is a misreading of 1 Corinthians 10:13, which says, “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.”
     
    God always puts more on us than we can handle. Sometimes the Lord, in his sovereign purpose, crushes us (Hebrews 12:4-12). He breaks us so that he can remake us. Think of how Jeremiah cried out in Lamentations because God has left his nation, city, and people utterly desolate and decimated. Think of all the psalms in which the psalmists cry out to God for bruising them. Think of our Lord Jesus in whom “it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer” (Isaiah 53:10).
     
    2 Corinthians 4:8-12
    8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
    9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
    10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
    11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
    12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
    Prayer.

    Stressed and Highly Favored - Ep. 244

    Stressed and Highly Favored - Ep. 244

    I was about to cancel this weeks episode because of my personal crisis but the Lord gave me something to share with you today.
     
    I am stressed but highly favored.
     
    My wife came home and it is kicking my butt.  I am the lone caregiver.  It is a blessing and not so much.  I am overwhelmed.  I feel inadequate.
     
    Prayer.
     
    The restoration of Peter.  
     
    Stress:  experiencing mental or emotional strain or tension.
     
    Becoming easily agitated, frustrated, and moody. Feeling overwhelmed, as if you are losing control or need to take control. Having a hard time relaxing and quieting your mind. Feeling bad about yourself (low self-esteem), and feeling lonely, worthless, and depressed.
     
    PETER
    In Mark 14:26-31, Peter talks about how he would never deny Jesus. ("Even if all fall away, I will not" and "Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.")
    And yet, we all know the story of what happens — it occurs just as Jesus said it would. Peter denies him three times at his trial, and after he had denied Jesus the third time, "he broke down and wept" (Mark 14:72).
    After this, the Bible tells us that Peter thinks he is unworthy and returns to his old life as a fisherman. All of the disciples go with him.
    The good news in all of this is that Peter was restored by Jesus, who is merciful, as John 21:15-25 reads.
     
    Thank you Lord.

    If You Love Me, Keep My Commandments. - Ep. 242

    If You Love Me, Keep My Commandments. - Ep. 242

    Thank you for listening this week.
    John 14:15-31
     
    15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
    16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
    17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
    18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
    19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
     
    John 16:33. These things I have spoken to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
     
    What do you want Lord?  
     
    He wants a relationship
    You get that by prayer and learning who he is from his word.
    He wants us to study his word
    He wants us to love our neighbor as ourselves
     
    Matthew 22:36-40
     
    Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment. [39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
     
    God is looking for Unity
    Divisions are of this world but not of GOD.

    Whose Side Are You On?
     
    The story of 4 men that thought they were doing right but weren’t. 7 ways to do better when you feel like the world is against you. A prayer for you.  
     
    Numbers 16
    King James Version
     
     
    16 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:
    2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:
    3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the Lord?
    4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:
    5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the Lord will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.
    6 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;
    7 And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the Lord to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the Lord doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.
    8 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:
    9 Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the Lord, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?
    10 And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?
    11 For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered together against the Lord: and what is Aaron, that ye murmur against him?
    12 And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up:
    13 Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us?
    14 Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.
    15 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the Lord, Respect not thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.
    16 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before the Lord, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow:
    17 And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring ye before the Lord every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou also, and Aaron, each of you his censer.
    18 And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron.
    19 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the Lord appeared unto all the congregation.
    20 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
    21 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.
    22 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation?
    23 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
    24 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
    25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him.
    26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of their's, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.

    Who You Gonna Trust? - Episode 240

    Who You Gonna Trust? - Episode 240

    Who do you trust these days?
    We asked the question daily.  We used to trust the news.  We used to trust politicians that we voted for.  We used to trust our parents.  We used to trust teachers.  We used to trust our neighbors.  
     
    I am here to remind you that you can still trust God.  
     
    You can’t trust in your good looks, personal strength or knowledge.  All of that goes away as we age.  We get wrinkles, scars, we hurt muscles we get injuries, we start to ache.  
     
    But you can trust God.  
     
    I hear people complain about the politicians in Washington DC.  After they get here they change.  DC is Hollywood for ugly people.  They are still celebrities.  Don’t get it twisted they can’t fix anything.
     
    But you can still trust God.
     
    I would like for you to be confident in that whatever God put in you, is still in you.  Your gift, your talent, your art, your power for Good.  
     
     
    Phil 1:6 - For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
     
    Phil 4:13 Hebrews 10:35-36 Hebrews 6:12 1 John 5:14-15 Proverbs 3:26 Ephesians 3:12 On Confidence, and Trust in God

True Bible Believing, Guidance in Christ’s Church

Rev Kenn ceaselessly teaches of the Lord Christ and directly from the Holy Bible, but so well framed in what we as Christians face today (not that we face anything different than the Church of centuries ago, but definitely, we see new ways evil will try to tempt us away). Kenn is always uplifting, and often with a bit of humor. In Speak Life Church, Rev Kenn brings us the Word - wherever we are, and whenever we hear, we are joined together in the Lord. This ministry in podcast form is a blessing! Thank you, Rev Kenn.

Simple and Clear

Pastor Kenn is a spiritually gifted preacher. He has an extraordinary way of making the word of God easy to understand. I look forward to future podcast that will help me grow closer to God while strengthening my faith walk.

Kenn’s ministry

First off I want to thank Kenn for his ministry. Personally I have felt distant from my physical church but The Speak Life Podcast has kept me grounded. This show is a wonderful once a week quick lesson, sermon, and bible reading that is well done.
