Hope that does not disappoint

Isaiah 49:23, "Those who hope in me will not be disappointed."
Isaiah 29:23, "When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel.  Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding; those who complain will accept instruction."
Hope sees the future beyond helpless, confusing, chaotic swirls of present reality.
Hope sees the future of God in control, working out his sovereign will for the good of those who love him. 
Hope sees the future of God at work with his invisible hands transforming his promises into present reality.
Hope sees God.
