It is right for me to hope. Hope is the total grounding of my confidence and expectation in God’s goodness and providential care even in the face of trouble.
Now she who is a widow indeed and who has been left alone, has fixed her hope on God and continues in entreaties and prayers night and day. | 1 Timothy 5:5 (NASB)
Before you know it, his justice will triumph; the mere sound of his name will signal hope, even among far-off unbelievers. | Matthew 12:21
Hope can be placed in God in the face of difficulty or trial. Things get tough. We are persecuted. We are poor. We need healing. We have trials. Life can get difficult.
There is good news. I have hope. God is doing a good thing. God is good. I must not despair.
