The last two weeks have proven to me that if I do this, I am building my hope on nothing. “ Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit’— 14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then van- ishes. 15 Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that’” (James 4:13-15). When I trade in my focus on stocks and bonds and turn to stocking up essentials out of fear, I am still build- ing my hope on nothing. “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19- 21). When my heart is then turned to mass hysteria and concern for the future that no one knows but God, I am building my hope on nothing. “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. There- fore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble”. Matthew 6:33-34 When I allow my confidence to be in politics and expect politicians or presidents to fix what is broken in this world, I will find disappointment along the way, because I am building my hope on nothing. “Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry (Psalm 146:3-7). I will borrow from the wisdom of Solomon as I trust in the LORD with all my heart. I do not lean on my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him, and He makes straight my paths. You see I am building my hope on nothing... less than Jesus blood and righteousness.

He was concerned for their physical needs as we see In Acts 20:35 when he said. “I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” But his primary concern was for their spiritual needs. To this end Paul commended them to God’s word. In verse 32 we read, “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” Paul is confident in God’s word to edify! The word of God is able to build us up and to encourage us. In fact God’s people have always found encouragement in His word. David wrote of this in Psalms 119 testifying, “I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much as in all riches” (119:14). Too many times we may be tempted to think “If I had more money, I would be happy. Everything would be great.” David understood the foolishness of such thinking. He acknowledged that “The law of Your mouth is better to me Than thousands of coins of gold and silver” (Psa. 119:72). Job under- stood this declaring, “I have not departed from the com- mandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food” (Job. 23:12). We have been blessed more than any other nation when it comes to the amount of food we are able to produce. We have never known the famine of nations like Ethio- pia but the greatest blessing we have is the Bible. In this Psalm David continued emphasizing the importance of God’s word saying, “How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104 Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way. 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” That same word is also able to comfort his people in times of sorrow and troubles. It is of greater comfort than any of us are able to give. Our intentions may be the best but all too often they fall short. Job’s friends had good intentions but Job declared, “Miserable comforters are you all!” (Job 16:2). David continued in Psalm 119 speaking of the comfort to be found in God’s word. “This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life…I remembered Your judgments of old, O LORD, And have comforted myself” (Psa. 119:50, 52). Let each of us follow David’s example and trust in God’s word for the edification and comfort we need. Office If you need anything or have concerns please feel free to leave a message at the office.

We are currently evaluating and implementing various ways to preserve the community of our Deerfoot church and keep the church spiritually nourished. These are unprecedented times, and while we can’t assemble physically, we can make use of diverse tools available to help bridge the gap. Your ideas and recommendations are tremendous – please keep them coming. Your adaptability, your expressed love of the congregation, your devotion to service, and your patient humility are all very humbling. Please continue to check on each other and 9 Let us not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us work for the good of all, especially for those who belong to the household of faith.
