All God’s plans have the mark of the cross on them, and all His plans have death to self in them…. But men’s plans ignore the offence of the cross or despise it. Men’s plans have no profound, stern or self-immolating denial in them. Their gain is of the world. E. M. Bounds

Psalm 39:7 (King James Version)
7And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
1 Peter 1:21 (King James Version)
21Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. According to these two Scripture verses our Hope is in God.
Acts 26:6,7; 1 Timothy 1:1— We have Hope in the Promises of God.
Psalm 33:18–Behold the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy. We have Hope because of the mercy of God.
Galatians 5:5—- For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. In this verse we see two things that provide hope for the believers of Christ. Hope through the Holy Spirit and Hope by our faith.
Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier. ~Author Unknown
