Trusting in God brings hope, joy and peace

hope we have

The writer of Hebrews tell us that the hope we have in Jesus serves as an anchor for our soul (6:19). And yet, many Christians live day-to-day feeling as if their circumstances leave them hopeless. Hope, for a Christian, is the expectation of something good. Hope is woven into the fabric of who we are as followers of Jesus. We are “hope-people” because we can now enter into God’s presence with confidence as individual’s who are holy and righteous as we are in Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21).

To that end, here are several verses on hope. Read and reflect on the truths shared in these verses:

  1. God has solutions to our problems (1 Corinthians 10:13)
  2. God’s grace is sufficient for every need (2 Corinthians 9:8)
  3. God is able to do more than we ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20)
  4. God is always faithful (Lamentations 3:32)
  5. Hope is an anchor for our soul (Hebrews 6:19)
  6. We’re called to put our hope in God (Psalm 42) who is faithful and powerful (Psalm 146:3-10)
  7. Hope produces endurance and perseverance (1 Thessalonians 1:3)
  8. Christians have a living hope because of the resurrection of Jesus (1 Peter 1:3)
  9. Trusting in the God of hope will bring joy and hope (Romans 15:13).
