There are two different ways the dictionary defines hope. One is a feeling of expectation and a desire for certain things to happen. As believers, we have an expectation that God is faithful and has forgiven us of all our sins because of what Jesus has done on the Cross. Do we know this in our head or in our hearts? The other way it defines it is a person or thing that may help or save someone. We have hope in Jesus Christ for being our Savior, our Deliverer, our true Hope. He has come to save the world and He will return again, this is our hope.
Today, be encouraged that no matter what you are doing through, you can have hope in the God of rescue. Here is what the Bible has to say with Scripture on Hope:

Isaiah 40:31 – But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
