Romans 8:24-26 NKJV
For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Paul talks to the church at Rome about the hope we have relative to the complete redemption of our bodies. He discusses the principle of hope. He said we only have hope because we believe in something we do not see. We do not hope for what we see because we see it already. Our hope is for what we do not see with our natural eyes. However, we can see it with our spiritual eyes as we wait for it to manifest in the physical realm. So, if there is something we need from the Lord (from the spiritual realm), we must keep hope alive. Faith cannot be released until we first have hope. Faith will stop if we let go of hope. Faith and hope are partners. We cannot get anything by faith without hope. Our hope cannot produce for us without faith. So, whatever we need, let us see it being ours in the spiritual realm, and add faith to hope until it is manifested in the natural realm.
