Romans 5:5

Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Romans 5:5
A hope that doesn’t disappoint is not the same as other kinds of hope you may have known in the past. Past hopes that bring disappointment cannot, in fact, really be considered in the same category as the hope that Paul is writing about here. The kind of hope that has been dashed over and over again may be a desire or wish, and these are not the same as biblical hope. If we hope in the biblical way, we will never be disappointed. That is what Paul is really saying here. This kind of hope is in God and the fulfilment of His promises. God Himself strengthens and confirms this kind of hope…We are never disappointed when we hope in this way because the end result is the experience of God’s love in our hearts. This intimacy with God is knowing God at its highest and best.
