1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

In 1 Corinthians 13:13 hope is listed along with faith and love as one of the three great abiding forces of life. No one can live a successful Christian life without each of these. All three are important for successful Christian living and all three will abide, continue, or remain until we enter the perfect state of eternity with God with our glorified bodies.

Every one of us need to view our future with the expectation and anticipation of something good not with the dread of something bad. Viewing the future in positive, optimistic, and in favorable terms is not wishful thinking or mind over matter. It is what the force of hope from one of God’s promises can do in us. Hope is God’s force of eternal optimism or Heaven’s Optimistic Pictures Encouraging us. This hope is available to every believer to give them a picture of a better future.
