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.
