The hope we receive through our relationship with God is what gives us peace regardless of our circumstances. In Romans 15:13 Paul says, May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit living in us we can feel joy and peace no matter what is going on around us if we simply choose to submit to Him. God truly is the God of hope. Everything else comes from the fallen world around us. It is up to us to choose which voice we will listen to.
