Bible verses about hope

Whether it’s for the better or for the worst, words have the power to impact, influence, and transform our lives. Sometimes people’s words may be encouraging, while other times they may be completely destructive. Regardless of the motive behind every word, words are powerful enough to have an effect in our lives. If a simple “you’ll be okay” from someone has the power to lift our mood up, can you imagine the impact that a word from God would have in our lives if we would only listen? Unlike humans, God always has the right words to say. And although the Bible speaks the truth (the truth hurts too, doesn’t it?), it is packed with powerful and encouraging bible verses for every circumstance, occasion, and person. So, if you’re in need of encouragement, here are 12 encouraging bible verses about hope.

No matter how wise or kind a human can be, they could never in a billion years compare to God. Since God created you, he knows you better than anyone else.

Yep, God knows you better than your parents, friends, loved ones, etc. 

He knows your strengths, weaknesses, struggles, troubles – everything! 

And because he knows you so well, he’s the only one who knows how to help you, speak to you and teach you through his word. 


Now, you may be wondering, how will God talk to me? 

Through his Word, the Bible. 

If you didn’t know, the Bible is filled with so many powerful, life-changing, encouraging and motivating verses. In other words, the Bible is filled with encouraging words dedicated from God to the person reading it. 

That’d be you and I. 


With an impressive amount of 66 books total, the Bible contains 66 books packed with hundreds of verses to read, study and apply to our lives! How complete is the Bible?

So, it’s not up to God anymore! He already left his Word for us. It’s now up to us to take the time to devour his Word and find bible verses that speak to us and encourage us.
