Psalm 16:9 “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.”
Romans 8:25 “But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.”
Hope in God
It’s good to learn patience. Those that wait with expectation, faith and hope – receive! Hope is keeping your eye on the ball, your heart steady. Faith is what causes you to move, to launch like a rocket. Hope on the other hand, is what moves you to stand still, to stay steady fixed on course, unwavering, fixed on the goal of the moon or any other target.
These two forces therefore, are not in opposition, they complement one another; they are like two sides for the same coin. Faith without hope ends in frustration as the rocket veers off course. Hope without faith ends up in presumption; the rocket stays on the launch pad.
Both faith and hope come from reading and absorbing my word. Faith in action is very powerful but faith without works is dead, lifeless, inert. Three things remain: faith, hope and love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
Add love to the mixture of faith and hope, and you have an explosive formulae – dynamite, because faith works by love.
