We all have expectations, and sometimes they are not met or what we think we want or need.
In the first chapter of Joshua, God appoints Joshua as leader following Moses and gives Him confidence that, He will give to the Israelites, “every place where you set your foot…”.

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 Pray for Vietnamese believers to be strong and courageous, and unswervingly hold on to His hope.
