As Christians, our faith is often put to the test, and we may find ourselves in situations where we begin to doubt who we are and God’s promises. We can only turn to the Bible during those moments for the strength we need to keep going. Turn to these verses when you’re not sure what to do next, when you’re in a difficult situation, when you need encouragement, or when you need a reminder of your hope in Christ.

What the Bible Says About Hope
There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
“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.”
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.
For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior, and my God.
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
Job 5: 15-16
He saves the needy from the sword in their mouth; he saves them from the clutches of the powerful. So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts its mouth.
