      Tikvah for Hashem’s Salvation is  an incredible power and is  actually incumbent upon us to master all day as we say in the  Brachah of Mashiach,  כִּי לִישׁוּעָתְ֒ךָ קִוִּינוּ כָּל הַיּוֹם, because in Your Salvation did we hope all day. 

      When looking at the first use of the root word of Tikvah, it appears in the first chapter of Beraishis and shows a process of steps that lead to certain lines, boundaries, gathering, and thereupon the completion of the original vision, much like the way we daven that leads us to the ultimate Place, Makom Echad Hashem.

      It is a world in which anything is possible!  There are some specific attributes and benefits offered to those who choose to live with Tikvah that we are taught about in our Torah, and Chazal. I have listed some below in the desire and Tikvah that we can all attach to our power of Tikvah biezras Hashem, and participate in the activation of Mashiach B’mhaira B’yameinu Amein.

      (1)Transfer of Power:  וְקוֹיֵ ה׳ יַחֲלִיפוּ כֹחַ, Those who hope in Hashem will have power transferred.

      Those of Klal Yisrael that have Tikvah in Hashem will be strengthened by Him, and He will bring them back to Yerushalayim; the enemies, who are now mighty, will be weakened.  Transfers the power from the enemies to Yisrael.  The Ibn Ezra states: Before one power is exhausted, the other is prepared for them by Hashem.[1]

      (2) Seeing Hashem and what is possible with the ability to see that which was hidden and life even if it seems as if there is darkness and impossible to overcome. Special access to a form of existence that is prepared to give life, that sprouts.   וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֗ים יִקָּו֨וּ הַמַּ֜יִם מִתַּ֤חַת הַשָּׁמַ֙יִם֙ אֶל־מָק֣וֹם אֶחָ֔ד וְתֵרָאֶ֖ה הַיַּבָּשָׁ֑ה, Elokim said, “Let the water below the sky be gathered into one area, that the dry land may be seen.”[2]

      (3) Allows for Unification, to One Place; Hashem.  As a string connected to all , to all connect like a cord to Hashem; which leads to purification as in Mikveh. וַיִּקְרָ֨א אֱלֹהִ֤ים ׀ לַיַּבָּשָׁה֙ אֶ֔רֶץ וּלְמִקְוֵ֥ה הַמַּ֖יִם קָרָ֣א יַמִּ֑ים וַיַּ֥רְא אֱלֹהִ֖ים כִּי־טֽוֹב, Elokim called the dry land Earth and called the gathering of waters Seas. And Elokim saw that this was good.[3]

      (4) It allows for Hashem saving us in the time of Tzara, suffering, or trouble. We don’t have to wait for the morning to come to be saved.[4]

      (5) Help, Deliverance and strengthening.  Also particular strengthening of the heart. Without being time bound.  Now. [5]
