Prisoners of Hope

If we be not “fully persuaded that what God has promised, He is able also to perform,” we shall know but little of the power or energy of hope. If faith be wavering, hope will be flickering. On the contrary, if faith be strong, hope will be strong also; for faith, while it nourishes and strengthens the persuasion, imparts strength and intensity to the expectation.

C. H. Mackintosh (1820-1896)
