God is faithful and loyal to His covenant – He is the One who does not change. Our hope is in His the unchanging merciful character.
Do not put your trust in princes,
in mortals, in whom there is no help.
When their breath departs, they return to the earth;
on that very day their plans perish. Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God – Psalm 146:3-5
It is the favour of God that we want to recognize in our life. When it is given, it is a covering providing mercy, preservation, security, and assurance of answered prayer. It how we get the idea that “hope springs eternal” and that things will be better with “the dawn of a new day come.”
I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up, and did not let my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. O Lord, you brought up my soul from Sheol, restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit. Sing praises to the Lord, O you his faithful ones, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment; his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning. – Psalm 30:1-5
