Webster's Thesaurus describes "Hope" as anticipation, aspiration, assurance, belief, desire, expectancy, expectation, confidence, faith, optimism, prospect, trust.
He pointed out that wishing and hope are not the same thing. Wishing differs in the fact that often when one wishes for something they do not believe it will come to be. Whereas "hope" holds that special ingredient - expectancy. It says that the desired outcome can happen.
The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 5:4 "And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us."
