For I know the plans I have for you. declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world!" --Jesus
For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is in Him.
Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
Not only that, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God our Father, who by grace has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good word and deed.
2 Thessalonians 2:16
