Now you know what hope is and how to make it unfailing and strong. Hold on to the Lord!
It's such a simple word "hope", but its meaning varies from culture to culture and at times hope saves human lives! That's why it is so important to know what hope is and guard it in your heart!
The essence of hope
Hope is tightly related to aspirations and desires. We all want the better life for ourselves and our loved ones. We hope for it, when we do not see it yet. So, hope is the desire of something, which we do not have at the present time. Apostle Paul says these amazing words:
"For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?" (Romans 8:24)

It's something we do not see, but it has the power of salvation in it! Hope can be relative both to material and non-material assets and things. And which is more important, it has different sources or foundations.
For instance, Job says:
"If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence…" (Job 31:24)
People can make gold their hope. Such hope is doomed, as this world is not stable. Often time hopes get ruined by circumstances. You surely need a more reliable foundation for yours.
Hope is like walls, but they cannot stand fast, unless there is a firm foundation underneath. Hope protects people and lets them survive the hardships of life. It glows with the awesome possibilities of the future.
Lord God is the only true foundation for human hopes and He never ever fails us! Trust in Him and He will make your desires come true!
