Hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees?
But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience.
In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings.
Romans 8: 24-26
I hope in things not seen. At the times when my words feel inadequate, I’m not left to myself. John 14:26 promises the Counselor helps me in my weaknesses, in my inadequacies. When I am weak, He is strong.
I pray with waiting expectation, not in a state of limbo. In Hebrew, ‘wait’ comes from a word meaning ‘to bind together’ and figuratively means ‘to expect.‘
Not in fear, not in despair.
My hope is in God and I wait expectantly for Him to intervene in His time, in His way. And in the wait…
I grow closer to Him with the bonds of Love.
