Hebrews 11:1 - "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Worldy hope is just a kind of wish.
Whenever we see hope in the bible, it means there is an expectation. According to Mark 11:24, when we pray, we should believe we receive.
We should expect -- not just desire -- that those things come to pass. You can have a truckload of desire and no expectation.
Whatever you EXPECT, you have FAITH to RECEIVE. And just as you are the one who's going to believe you receive, you are the one who's going to set your expectation level.
