Hope is a passionate desire of the heart. Hope is a reason to keep going. Hope is an expectation and a longing for certain things (healing) to happen.
Whom better to place our hope in, than in our Lord and Savior. Psalm 71:5 - For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth. 14. - As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. 20 & 21. - Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will honor and comfort me once more. Psalm 73:26 - My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
He is our HOPE, He is the only one who can hear the desperate pleas of ours hearts and answer our prayers.
Without HOPE, we are desperate, despairing, and pessimistic, incapable of feeling happy and optimistic. Without HOPE it is impossible to have the fight inside of you to deal with an incurable disease.
But those who HOPE in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will walk and not be faint.
