We’re all waiting for something. Each one of us has a desire in our heart that hasn’t been answered by God. We’re seeking and longing and questioning. Wondering if He’s really heard us or if He even cares. There’s a craving and a searching that can’t be quenched, no matter how hard we strive. We want that thing so badly and yet it seems so far out of reach.
“…Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees?” (Romans 8:24)
Hope requires faith because it calls us to something, someplace, we’ve never seen, touched, or fully felt with our physical senses. Uncertainty is at play. The unknown is eminent, obvious. But God’s given us enough of a glimpse into what’s to come, even better, into Who He is, to trust Him and hope in the future.
