Bible Verses for When You Need Hope

God’s word is full of hope for every situation that we face. Sometimes discouragement, disappointment, delay, fear, doubt, and worry can take away our hope, our confident expectation, in God or in the promises that He has made to us.

Below are 22 Bible verses for when you are feeling hopeless or when you feel like your hope is decreasing. If you can put our hope in anything, it’s in God and in His word. You can confidently hope in God, confidently hope in His word, confidently hope in His promises to you, and confidently hope that He will keep you through any and every situation. Most importantly, you can confidently hope in the promise of eternity with God.

If you are in a situation and you’re unsure of God’s will concerning it, seek God diligently about the situation and put your hope in what He says. If you’re losing hope concerning specific promises that God has said to you in the past, go back and recall those promises to mind; meditate on them, ask God to confirm them if need be, and war with each prophetic word you have ever received (1 Tim. 1:18)! Remind yourself of what God has said then remind yourself that God is not a man that He should lie (Num. 23:19). God will not leave you to be ashamed concerning any situation! He will not abandon or forsake you. Put your hope (your confidence) completely in Him.

I have gone through moments and seasons of hopelessness. One season, in particular, threatened to wipe out my hope so much so that it took several seasons after that to fully resurrect my hope again. Below are some of the verses that I have meditated on and fought with when I was going through that season of hopelessness.

I encourage you to meditate and fight off hopelessness with these verses and allow His word to anchor you even in the most tumultuous storms. When everything else fails, God’s word will remain.
