Put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. -- Psalm 130.7 (NIV)
"It is the wholesome precept of our Lord and Master: 'He that endureth,' saith he, 'unto the end the same shall be saved.' We must endure and persevere, in order that, being admitted to the hope of truth and liberty, we may attain to the truth and liberty itself; for that very fact that we are Christians is the substance of faith and hope. For we are not following after present glory, but future, according to what Paul the apostle also warns us, and says, 'We are saved by hope; but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he hope for? But if we hope for that which we see not, then do we by patience wait for it.'
Therefore, waiting and patience are needful, that we may fulfill that which we have begun to be, and may receive that which we believe and hope for, according to God's own showing."
-- Cyprian

O LORD, sustain me according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed. -- Psalm 119.116 (NIV)
"But wait in faith. Express your unstaggering confidence in him, for unfaithful, untrustful waiting is but an insult to the Lord. Believe that if he keeps you tarrying even till midnight, yet he will come at the right time; the vision will come and will not tarry."
-- Charles Spurgeon
