According to Hebrews 11:1, faith is the assurance or substance of things hoped for, the conviction of things unseen. Notice that faith is an assurance of two things or senses;(1) something that we don't have but hoped for, and (2) somethings that we do have but not seen. What are the things hoped for? There are many things to hope for in God. We hope for God's blessings, guidance, comfort, strength, wisdom and many more gifts from the Father. But the psalmist hoped primarily in God, that is he hoped to be satisfied in God himself, not just his gifts. He pants and thirsts for God(Psalm 42:1-2). As Christians, we can definitely say that we are sure that we have God in our lives even though we can't see him, but what is there to hope in God if we already have him? Why was the psalmist still pants and thirsts for God? The answer lies on Psalm 42:11. He's preaching to his soul not to despair but instead hope in God and the reason he gave is that he shall yet to praise him. Meaning, he's not yet praising God as he ought and desire to praise Him. How many of us hope for many things from God but not God? The psalmist saw himself as lacking and in need of satisfaction, not from things but from praising God. What satisfies him is to praise God. As John Piper would put it; "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him"
