FATHER'S LOVE POURED OUT
3 Not only this, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering works perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope: 5 and hope doesn’t disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

No matter what bad things happen in life...No matter how much we suffer, no matter how much we have to persevere... We have this hope that promises to never disappoint us. God Himself, the glorious Father has poured His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that He has given to us.
Though there will be times when we will experience heartache and loss, may the Holy Spirit give us grace to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. And that light is the love of God. No matter what difficulties we encounter, His love makes us more than conquerors.
May a fresh outpouring of His love fill each one of our hearts today as we realize that there is no end to the love that God has for us. May we be convinced that His love will never disappoint us and may we come into agreement with what the Apostle John wrote in 1 John 4:16...
We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. (WEB)
