Hope does not free us from darkness. God raises up a deliverer to make known His plan which He confirms through His prophets and by grace and faith we hear His voice and follow after Him by the word of His servant steward. Jn 17:20; 1 Cor 4:16, 11:1; Phil 3:17
Faith, hope, and charity.... Hope drawn by grace is hope reflecting the Light of Christ. Therefore Christ is our only hope as He is the Light of this world which stands in darkness apart from His spiritual tether.
