Romans 5:3-5

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love.
Romans 5:3-5 NLT
A hope that doesn’t disappoint is not the same as other kinds of hope you may have known in the past. …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.
