Print Post

Today, I thought I’d share some simple, but good Bible verses about HOPE that you can write in your journal or memorize

God wanted us to have HOPE, and the word is mentioned at least 133 times in the KJV Bible. Furthermore, there are hundreds of additional Bible verses that give significant meaning of adding HOPE to our Christian life and walk with the Lord.

First, let’s look at the definition of HOPE….



  • a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
    Similar words: aspiration, desire, wish, expectation, ambition, aim, plan, longing, yearning
  • a feeling of trust.


  • want something to happen or be the case.

What would life be without HOPE?

The lack of HOPE makes one’s spirit downcast. To feel HOPELESS causes one to give up… hence, they lack the fortitude to fight.

Proverbs 13:12 kjv says, “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.”

We know from stories and experiences of those who have held on to HOPE have recovered from serious health issues and difficult life battles with greater success.

One of my favorite Bible stories is that of JOSEPH. I have much admiration for his character. We don’t hear of him griping or complaining as he was sold into slavery, nor as be sat in prison.

How do we know that he maintained a good attitude? Because through each of his difficult situations, he was promoted in his position. You don’t get promoted upward while griping and throwing fits about your predicament.

I believe Joseph mastered holding on to HOPE.

With HOPE and FAITH, Joseph believed that God would give him an expected end, and that he would fulfill the purpose for which God created him.

“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
