Our hopes are grounded

All our hopes from God are grounded upon the promises which He hath made us in Jesus Christ:
but He Who hath made those promises is faithful;
so faithful, that He " cannot lie,"
and therefore cannot but do what He hath promised,
if we do but that which is required on our parts,
even believe that He will:
and certainly we have all the reason that can be for it.

- William Beveridge, Sermon 83, line breaks mine
