My hope

In the Bible, hope is more than a wishful desire, it is an expectation of blessing.

My hope (Tiqwati) pictured in the Hebrew text of Psalm 71:5.

My hope (Tiqwati) in the Hebrew text of Psalm 71:5.

My hope in Hebrew:


The related Hebrew word, miqweh, means “to wait or look for with eager expectation.” God should be the focus of our expectation because no one and nothing else is so faithful to meet our needs and bless us with the very best for our physical, mental, and spiritual lives.

Bible reference: Ps. 71:5

For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. (Psalm 71:5 KJV)

Similar names for God are “Hope of their fathers” and “Hope of Israel.” The people of Israel learned that God never disappointed them when they looked to Him expectantly; in the end, He always blessed them with what they needed.
