STOP AND THINK – Hope: A trusting expectation that God is going to keep His word. (Author Unknown)

Dictionary definition:  to want something to happen or be true and think that it could happen or be true. Sounds pretty indefinite, doesn’t it. To the contrary, biblical hope is a certainty based on God’s Word. His word can be trusted. It’s a critical aspect of faith, trust in what God has said. The bedrock for faith, trust, and hope, then is the Bible, God’s revealed Word.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. … Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful (Hebrews 6:19; 10:23).
