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.

Bible verses for peace

Bible Verses For When You Need Peace

Peace. The peace of God is a promise and an inheritance to His children. In this chaotic world that we live in, it’s easy to let the cares of life overtake us and lose our peace. But the Bible tells us that if we keep our mind on Christ, He will give us perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). This means He’ll give us a peace that lacks nothing, a peace that is able to take us through and keep us in ANY situation. When we take our eyes off of Jesus, we will have no peace, but when we fix our eyes on Him, we will have peace like a river.

There is POWER in God’s word to give us what we need in every situation. There is no situation so great that you can’t rest in the peace of God. The thing about peace is that you must choose it. You must choose to receive GOD’S PEACE. You must choose to believe that God is with you, that He sees you, that He cares, and that every situation is in His hands. His peace is available to you and He cares for you.

Peace In God’s Presence

For the last few weeks, the word peace has been in my Spirit. Every time I would ask God what He wanted me to write about this month, He would say “peace.” I didn’t completely understand what aspect of peace He wanted me to write from, but as I waited, prayed, and spent time in His presence, He made it clearer.

As we all know, there is so much taking place in the world and in the church right now, there are many things being discussed on social media that’s causing much debate and division even among believers. There are many things pulling for our attention, and many things seeking to distract us. Sadly, things are not going to get better, things will only intensify in the coming weeks, months, and years. As the Bible has prophesied, many events will take place before the coming of our Lord. There will also be a great falling away in the church (2 Thess. 2:3), which is slowly taking place before our eyes. Events are taking place all over the world to set the stage for the coming of The Lord.

In a time like this, we have to make sure that we are connected to God, we have to make sure that we are not distracted by all the noise of the world and the things taking place in our personal lives. We have to make sure that we’re truly in tune to the Spirit of God. There are many things vying for our attention, our devotion, and our time. And while we should be discerning, alert, and aware of what’s going on around us, we also have to make sure that our resting place is in the presence of God. We all have to make our home is in His presence.

I’d also like to hear your topic suggestions. If there’s anything that I’ve written about that you’d like to have a more in-depth conversation about or any other topics you’d like me to cover, kindly post it in the comment section below.

News // YouTube Channel + More

Hey Jesus worshipers!

As you can see, I’ve added a new tab to the blog called “News.” In this section, I’ll be sharing updates and announcements with you all.

Here are a few updates and announcements:

  1. I’m so excited to announce that the Heart Of Worship Blog now has a YouTube channel!!! God has been tugging on my heart for a few months now to start making videos. So as promised, I will be making videos on different topics as God leads. Some videos will be live and some will be pre-recorded. You can subscribe to the YouTube channel here.
  1. Mark your calendars and set your alarms! This Wednesday at 8 PM EST I’ll be recording a LIVE video on YouTube on my last blog post, “Is Dating Biblical.” Since this video is live, you guys can join me and ask any questions you have on the topic or questions on relationships in general. My husband will also be joining in on this video (yayy); He also has a lot of insight on relationships and I believe he has a lot of wisdom to share on the topic. I recommend reading the blog post first so you understand what the video is about. You can read it here: Is Dating Biblical?

  2. If you are subscribed to this blog, you should have received an email notification about my latest post, which was also my first Bible Study post, on “Bible Verses for Overcoming Sexual Sin.” You can find that post here. We are in a time where the word of God is being ignored, pushed to the side and replaced by the opinions of man and the trends of popular culture. If we don’t want to be deceived in these times, we really have to get back to the word of God, it has to be our foundation. That’s why I created a Bible Studies category. I want it to be a resource where you can quickly access Bible verses for different topics and situations. And I want it to encourage those who come on this blog to always go back to the word of God as your source.

  3. If you’ve sent me an email recently (via the contact page), please be patient as I respond back to you. I also want to remind you that no one can help you better than Jesus. If you push away the noise, lay your fears and desires down, and really seek God, He will give you the answers and wisdom you need for your situation.

Thank for your continued support! That’s all for now!

P.s. I’d love to connect with you more, so be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram, like and follow the Heart of Worship Facebook page, and don’t forget to subscribe to the new YouTube channel!

Bible Verses about Sexual Sin, How to overcome sexual immorality

Bible Verses for Overcoming Sexual Sin

Sexual immorality – lust, perversion, masturbation, pornography, fornication, sex dreams, etc. – we’ve all experienced it in one form or the other. Earlier on in my walk with the Lord, I have personally dealt with sexual immorality in different ways. Although I remained a virgin until marriage, I dealt with lust and masturbation which of course led to sex dreams and fantasies. I had to first acknowledge that it was a problem and that it was a sin before God before I could be delivered from it. Even though I wasn’t having sex, it was still not pleasing to God. My deliverance came in many stages and it took A LOT of self-denial. There were times where it seemed like I took 2 steps forward only to go 4 steps back. It was tough and it took some time for me to fully get free, but I did eventually get free by the grace of God.

There came a point that I got sick and tired of getting beat up by the enemy and giving in to my flesh, so I started to deal with the issue head-on. One of the main things that helped me to overcome was finding Bible verses about the topic and using them to fight. I would write them down, memorize them, meditate on them, and recite them especially when the temptation arose. I learned to war with the word of God and pray the word of God over my mind, my emotions, my body, my soul, and against the fiery darts of the enemy. Some days the battle was so intense that I would have to recite them to myself while looking at myself in the mirror. There were even times that I would have to recite them every day, several times a day, and especially before bed.

What does the Bible say about dating?

Is Dating Biblical?

To date or not to date? To have a boyfriend/girlfriend or not to have one? What is God’s view on dating (and boyfriends and girlfriends) and what does the Bible have to say about all of this?

From Genesis to Revelation, you see three (3) types of (romantic) relationships: Single, engaged (also known as betrothed), and married. We do not see dating in scripture or anything like it. The only place where we see something similar to dating mentioned is in John 4:18 when Jesus was talking to the Samaritan woman and He told her that the man she was with now was not her husband – it was exposure and a rebuke for being with someone she wasn’t married to.

Some might argue that in that time period and culture, things were different, so dating was not at all acceptable. That’s true, however, when you read the word of God and see God’s standards for how we should live in our bodies, how we should relate to and treat one another, and the topic of sexual immorality, it points to a Kingdom culture and standard that debunks dating as we know it today.

What is my purpose?, purpose

What Is My Purpose?

What is my purpose? People ask this question a lot nowadays. It seems like everyone, both in and out of the church, is trying to discover their life’s purpose. That’s great, and I do believe that God has a purpose for allowing each of us to come into this world, I believe He has things that He wants each of us to do on the earth and He knows the plans that He laid out for each individual person. I also believe that until a person fully surrenders their life to God, they won’t fully walk out the plans that God has for them.

Purpose is an awesome thing and we all want to live life with purpose; we all want to live full and fulfilled lives and do things that we love. However, I also believe that what we in the church today have defined and labeled as “purpose” is not purpose but assignment(s) and sometimes gifts He has given us to carry out those assignments. Christians often say things like, my purpose is to be a teacher, a preacher, to be a millionaire, a wife, a prophet, a lawyer, a businessman/woman, to travel the world and preach, etc. But in actuality, according to the Word of God, those things are not our purpose, those things are our assignments. When you are in Christ and called according to HIS purpose (see Rom. 8:28), those things can’t be our purpose because they aren’t HIS PURPOSE, they are assignments.

Do You Love Me More Than These?

A few weeks ago, I was spending time with God and thinking about my life – the current state of my life, the different parts of my life and the people in it like my husband and our marriage, our church and church family, our natural family, our finances, etc. Then a few questions came to my spirit – which I know were from God: What if these things were to fall apart? What if important people in my life began to leave or fail me? What would be my response to God? Would I run from God and abandon my relationship with Him? Would I become angry and bitter with Him because people I trusted in disappointed me or let me down?
