In Hebrews 11:1 we learn that faith is the substance of things ‘hoped’ for and the evidence of things yet seen. Therefore, it is imperative that we live in constant ‘hope’ of generous amounts of restoration, healing, and favor in this age as well as the age to come (Mark 10:29-30). Our ‘hope’ confirms that we will see God’s goodness “in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:13). Our life is not simply a matter of waiting for heaven; it’s bringing heaven to earth—in our own life and the lives of others, by prayer, faith, words, and actions. Hope is not nearly as distant as it seems. God is in the business of repairing what’s broken, providing what was lost, and restoring newness to life. Chuck Swindoll wrote, “We can endure life’s storms, tragedies, disappointments, and failures, as long as we maintain our ‘hope’. But in order for our hope to be effective and based on truth, it must be placed in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Scripture refers to our hope in Christ as the “anchor of the soul”; it offers us stability during life’s most violent storms.”
