11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
2through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3
And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4and perseverance, character;
and character, hope. 5Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who
was given to us.
3Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
