Stop. Look around your office. Check on your desk. By your bed. What's on your fridge in the kitchen? Probably, a memo. I know we may not know it by that name. We usually call it by the now universal title - a Post-It Note. But call it what you will, what's written on it is more than a reminder, a good thought, or a recipe. On a much deeper level it is a measure of accountability.
It makes what is an idea, reality. Turning thoughts into action. That's why God, the One who is hope, and the One in whom His believers hope, wrote who He is on paper. Because what our Creator says is the extension of who He is. Therefore, what He says is impossible to not be done.
That's why His believers hope in His Word! This truth is taught repeatedly in the longest Psalm of all...
Psalm 119:49 KJV — ZAIN. Remember the word unto Thy servant, upon which Thou hast caused me to hope.
Psalm 119:81 KJV — CAPH. My soul fainteth for Thy salvation: but I hope in Thy word.
Psalm 119:114 KJV
Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in Thy word.
Psalm 119:116 KJV
Uphold me according unto Thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
It's one thing to believe in what our Heavenly Father can do (which is anything). But it's a whole different matter to believe in what He said He would do (which is exactly what He said). Read and stand on God's Word as evidence to a fact, and watch or be willing to wait for hope to turn into happening!

God has something to say to us (more than we want to hear it)! That's why there is always a WORD!
