These are some of the lines I have highlighted on Romans by R.C Sproul.
"The only difference between hope and faith is that faith looks to what has already taken place, and we put our trust in it. Hope is merely faith looking forward"
"Hope is the anchor that keeps us from being blown all over the place. It is the hope that God is going to do in the future every single thing he has said he will do. The fruit of justification is that kind of hope."
"Hope is not taking a deep breath and hoping things are going to turn out all right. It is assurance that God is going to do what he says He will do.... It is the solid stability that anchors the soul."
