The use of the word hope in the Bible seems to swing back and forth between the noun and verb side. Sometimes I’m not sure which it is. But I know that I must activate my hope in order to have faith for the things I’m praying for. Biblical hope is expecting what God has promised because He is faithful! I can activate my hope and trust Him. I can remember that hope is a verb and have hope, hope, hope for the impossible by faith because of God’s goodness and greatness and faithfulness.
