When many of us are in need of a little bit of hope, we turn to the Holy Bible for inspiration. There are many stories that pertain to hope all throughout, with some specific verses really standing out as go-to’s for people who need that boost. Here are 10 Bible verses about hope that will keep you going throughout your day no matter how difficult it may get.
The verse: “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.”
If we want to know what’s in store for us in the future, we have to look toward the past, including the faith that’s shown toward God. The Scriptures know what’s in the cards for you.
The verse: “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.”
The Lord will always have a plan for everyone, and it’s best to trust in the Lord and know that, despite the tests of strength, will end up being for the better.
The verse: “At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump dies in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.”
There is hope in everything around us, from the smallest bug to the birds that fly the highest. This includes trees, which end up finding new life even when they’re at the end of their mortal shell.
The verse: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed for us.”
There are going to be times in your life when you wonder if it’s worth it to go through all of the trials and tribulations. When you have hope in eternal happiness, though, you’ll realize that the current problems you face are minor quarrels.
The verse: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake.”
No matter where you go in life, you are not alone. The Lord is always there to help guide you through the best of times and worst of times, and that will never change.
The verse: “And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast.”
In your worst moments, the Lord knows the type of suffering that you’re going through and will do everything possible to make you better for the future.
The verse: “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim the liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.”
There are always going to be people who have it worse than you do at that very moment. It’s best to have hope and count your blessings, spreading that hope to others.
2 Corinthians 4:18
The verse: “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
We place too many of our feelings in what we see, but need to place our hope in the Lord and the miracles we can’t see with our two eyes.
1 Peter 1:13
The verse: “Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.”
In the end, all of our hope should be in the Lord and that he will return and save mankind.
The verse: “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold the dwelling of God is with me. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.”
God will wipe away all of the pain and suffering, and we must hope that there will no longer be that pain in our lives.
