We all know that the Bible is a book of hope, and hope is exactly what we need in hard times. Here are seven Bible verses about hope in hard times. I would encourage you to read them aloud, slowly and thoughtfully.
Bible verses about hope in hard times (kjv)
“And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.”
~ Deuteronomy 31:8 (kjv)
This bible verse makes you to understand that God’s presence will always go with His people (the Christians). Here, God had assured the children that He will go before them and will never leave them nor forsake them.
You have been instructed not to be afraid because God will always be with you.
“And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.”
~ Psalm 39:7 (kjv)
Here David proclaims that his only hope is in God alone and not in his personal strength or ability.
As Christians, we should be like David by putting our faith and hope in God when we go through hard times in our lives and not by getting worried or complaining.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
~ Jeremiah 29:11 (kjv)
When challenges arise in our daily lives, we always seek refuge in God’s Word, and Jeremiah 29:11 is one of such Scriptures. As a result, it’s important to grasp the historical and literary context of the verse in order to gain a better understanding of why Jeremiah penned it.
What’s the backstory behind his statements, and why did he say what he said? What does it imply in its literal sense, and how can we apply it to our daily lives as followers of Jesus Christ and children of God, not just through tribulations?
