But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out] — Hebrews 11:6 — Amplified

Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. — Hebrews 11:1 — Amplified

Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my [sad] countenance, and my God. — Psalms 43:5 — Amplified


Rejoice – Steadfast and Suffering – Be Constant in Prayer

Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer. — Romans 12:12 — Amplified


Praying and Proclaiming

 Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving. — Colossians 4:2 — Amplified


Beberapa hal yang menjadi pengharapan mungkin tanpa disadari :

1. Uang

He who loves silver will not be satisfied with silver, nor he who loves abundance with gain. This also is vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility)!  — Ecclesiastes 5:10 — Amplified Bible

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. — 1 Tim 6:10 — NKJV

Let your [a]character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] [b]Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor [c]give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [d][I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor [e]let [you] down ([f]relax My hold on you)! [[g]Assuredly not!] — Hebrews 13:5 — Amplified Bible


2. Pengetahuan

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. — Proverbs 3:5 — Amplified Bible

5-6God’s Message: “Cursed is the strong one who depends on mere humans, Who thinks he can make it on muscle alone and sets God aside as dead weight. He’s like a tumbleweed on the prairie, out of touch with the good earth.He lives rootless and aimless in a land where nothing grows. — Jeremiah 17:5 — The Message
