KJV Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
NASB Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;
Hebrews 10:23

Persecution will come (2 Tim. 3:12), but God is faithful. Temptations will abound, but God is faithful to provide an escape (cf. 1 Cor. 10:13). God's promises are reliable (1 Cor. 10:13; 1 Thess. 5:24; Jude 24,25). With that confidence, the believer can persevere.

HOPE - confident expectancy. Hope does not arise from the individual's desires or wishes but from God, who is Himself the believer's hope: "My hope is in You" (Ps. 39:7). Genuine hope is not wishful thinking, but a firm assurance about things that are unseen and still in the future (Rom. 8:24-25; Heb. 11:1, 7).
