Rom.15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
When all hope is gone he is still the God of hope; he creates it where it may not exist no matter what has happened to you or how hopeless it looks at the moment you are not without hope.
