35 Bible Verses About Hope to Encourage You in Hard Times

35 Bible Verses About Hope to Encourage You in Hard Times

God has a plan, even when things seem out of your control. It’s bigger than you, but it’s not bigger than God. Get quiet, remind yourself about God’s promises, and keep walking. Emotions will fight you, thoughts will try to betray you but keep reminding yourself that this is a test, and keep walking.


You can’t walk under your own strength, this is too big for you, keep giving your fears and anxiety to God and keep walking. If you get weak, if you get tired, give your weights to God and as how Isaiah chapter 40 verse 31 says, “He will renew your strength. You will soar on wings like eagles; you will run and not grow weary, you will walk and not be faint”.

And we see the main thing here is to “walk”. Walking, or in the other words we can say moving; is a living thing characteristic. You can’t walk (move) if you are not living, I mean if you are dead.

Maybe it is the anxiety you have or anything that you can’t go a day without it troubling you and your peace – trying to knock you out, I happily advise you to cast it all to Him and you will be free.

I gathered these 35 Bible verses about hope, life, and strength to help remind you that you don’t have to rely on your own understanding. You have been doing that for so long and you are harvesting nothing from it. Rely on Him and your life will be restored forever.

The bottom line

Even if you feel like you are drowning, you are halfway to your breakthrough, start by believing. You cannot be there physically if you are not yet there mentally.

Psalm 34:4 says “God freed me from all of my fears”. God is good, and we all know that He wants us to believe that no matter what, He will fulfill it all. To trust His timing and always be thankful for everything.

Believe, believe, believe even when you don’t see a reason to do so, God is faithful He won’t ever leave you or forsake his child. There is nothing too hard for Him, there is no prayer too hard for God to answer. The obstacles, the difficulties, there is absolutely nothing too hard for God our Lord to solve.

The Lord’s hand is not too short to save, nor His ear heavy to hear. You have been heard, get prepared because that time you have been waiting for so long, that time for you to receive what you have been praying for is around the corner.

Everything will be worth the wait. You have been noticed and your prayers are going to be answered. Remain faithful in the waiting room.
