Words from Pastor Ken


You exist for God. You are His special creation. He made you because He loves you. The reason you are to get up every morning is to fulfill the purpose that God has for your life. And it is a great purpose, a wonderful purpose. In fact, God says in Jeremiah 29:11 that He has good plans for you when you seek Him and His will for your life. It’s a good plan just for you.

The God who created you for Himself has never made any mistakes. There have been no failures or flaws in His plan for you. Yes, there are trials that you may have to endure. But the negative realities that you may be facing, or have faced, will work together for good if you love God, draw near to Him, and experience Him (see Rm 8:28). He promises.

God’s Word tells us, “In all these things [trials, struggles, emptiness, pain] we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Rm 8:37). But the most important word in that verse is often overlooked.

You might think that I am going to say “conquerors” is the most important word. Actually, no. The most important word is “in.” Because we are often tempted to believe that God has promised to keep us “from” the trials, tests, and pains of life and, then, when He doesn’t, we feel let down, discouraged, or defeated. But God never promised to deliver us from all things. He has promised that “in” all these things we are more than conquerors. We will receive the benefits and blessings that come only through our deep and meaningful experiences of Him in whatever we are walking through.
