Romans 5:2-5 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Romans 8:24-25 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

Maybe you just need a biblical reason for hope. There are some many great verses to choose from for this. Here are three of my favorites!

C.S. Lewis Quotes on Hoping For Something More

“Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world. There are all sorts of things in this world that offer to give it to you, but they never quite keep their promise.

“At present we are on the outside… the wrong side of the door. We discern the freshness and purity of morning, but they do not make us fresh and pure. We cannot mingle with the pleasures we see. But all the pages of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so. Someday, God willing, we shall get “in”… We will put on glory… that greater glory of which Nature is only the first sketch.

We do not want to merely “see” beauty–though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words–to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.

Spark Hope In Others Today

If God gave you hope through these verses, find a way to spark hope in others that you know need it. Take a verse or all the scriptures if you need to and send them to a friend in need. If everyone reading this would pass some of the scriptures on through Social Media or email we can give hope to so many!

Some of my other Favorite Verses

1 Chronicles 16:11  Seek the LORD and his strength;  seek his presence continually!

1 Corinthians 10:13  No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

2 Corinthians 4:13-14 Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence.

1 Corinthians 16:13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.

Mark 10:52 And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.

Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

At one time or another, all of us will face times when our future is uncertain. You don’t know what God’s will is for your life. In these times, Bible verses about the future are crucial for sustaining your faith. You need verses about trusting God to encourage your soul.

Maybe you’re about to graduate from college and have no idea what you will do this coming January. Perhaps you just lost your job. Or you’ve just moved to a new area where you know no one. Maybe you’ve just started a new job and feel overwhelmed at the challenges that loom before you. Maybe you’re single and wonder if you’ll ever get married. Your life may even be so uncertain you don’t know where your next meal will come from.

Whatever the case, you’re tempted to feel worried about the future.

Whatever the case, you feel worried about the future and need God to help you overcome fear.

Hope For The Future

The reality is that none of us are secure in this world except in Christ. Nothing is certain. We aren’t guaranteed our next meal. We aren’t even guaranteed our next heartbeat. Even when we feel secure, we are incredibly fragile and completely dependent on the Lord for every breath.

But when we are tempted about the future it is important for us to meditate on these unshakeable, always true Bible verses about the future. We can know God is good through the scriptures. In the scriptures, he makes it VERY clear that our future is secure in him.

My suggestion would be to copy these Scriptures and put them somewhere so you can see them regularly, like in your Bible or on your fridge. Even if you only meditate on the first three or four, God will use his word to encourage your heart.

If you find yourself struggling with fearful thoughts, meditate on these words and be encouraged as these verses speak to your worry and fear and anxiety. Let the word of God give you the peace that passes understanding. scriptures about hope for the future

#4. He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things. Romans 8:32

If God didn’t spare his own Son to save you, you can trust him with whatever circumstances you find yourself in. Think about it for a moment. He didn’t even spare his son. Won’t he do good to you? Won’t he bless you and take perfect care of you? Yes he will. This verse gives you great reason to trust in God.

#5. Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the fear of the LORD all the day. Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:17-18

Because you are God’s child, you can be confident that he will give you wisdom. And because he will give you wisdom, you can be sure that you will have a future and a hope.

#7. Therefore do not be anxious, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6: 31-33

It’s easy to become anxious about how you’re going to pay the bills or provide for your family. You can be sure, however, that if you seek God above everything else, he’ll handle all the little details of your life. If God provides so generously even for those who don’t follow him, you trust him to provide even more generously for you.
