We do not yet possess the full salvation. We can only hope, and when we hope for that which we cannot see (see in most scriptures signifies to enjoy) it naturally produces in us a patient waiting until God's appointed time to give us possession of it. (Romans 8:24)
Let me tell you, that hope will help you get through some things! Can you remember a time you were going through and what kept you from going over the edge was your hope and faith in God, or how about the time you said " this is never going to work" but someone else had faith and hope in you and they prayed! What happened.... didn't He do it?
Can I get an amen!
