To hope against hope is to hope without any basis for expecting fulfillment. In Romans 8:24 it states, “We are saved by hope…, but hope that is seen is not hope”. Hope is never backed up with actual proof. When you are in the state of hoping, you don’t have any evidence that assures you that what you believe is true. You have to believe.
Because hope doesn’t require proof, it can open your mind to new possibilities. In this way, hope is like magic. It gives you the go ahead to try new things. If you do the work to change things, then hope has the power to change your life. After all is said and done, it’s what you believe about life and do with that belief that changes the world. Hope gives you the power to change your world!
