Compared to many Christians, I feel like I have experienced very little personal suffering. But I still face a daily choice between placing my confidence in other people or circumstances and trusting in the Lord who rules over them all. Jerry Bridges’ classic book, Trusting God Even When Life Hurts, has been especially helpful in teaching me why I should trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding (Prov. 3:5-7).  I’ll try to convince you to buy and read this book by sharing my favorite quote from chapter 1.

“God in His love always wills what is best for us. In His wisdom He always knows that is best, and in His sovereignty He has the power to bring it about.”

Matthew Williams grew up attending KingsWay and joined the pastoral staff in 2009. God has blessed him and his wife, Aliza, with three rambunctious boys, Ethan, Micah, and Tyler. Matthew did his undergraduate work at the University of Richmond in chemistry and political science, spent a year at the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College, and is nearly finished with his Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
