Hope is basically the constancy of our faith. Without hope, there is little or no faith. Also, without much faith, there is usually little hope. We know that faith increases by reading the testimonies of the saints of old. We can read just how faithful God was in the past, and since we know that God does not change (Mal 3:6), we know for certain that He is the same God then as He is now. Increase your faith by the reading of the Word, and you’ll likely strengthen your hope, for hope is really faith with feet on it.
