Hope isn't faith. Faith refers to having something when we need it. And hope refers to the future. And it has in it the idea of waiting on God, to get what we desire. Hope is the difference between waiting on God's deliverance and giving up. And in a world where everything seems chaotic; we need to hold on to hope. Hope is a must-have virtue for the child of God. And considering what Psalm 34:19 says about hope, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him from them all;" our salvation hinged on trusting in God.

God loves us, and he has a plan for our lives. Being God's children, we can trust our heavenly father, and he will help us. God cannot lie, and He has never lied.
