Do you need hope for your future? I think we all do and there is plenty of hope for us in the Bible. I will try to encourage you with some hope in this study. I hope it encourages you as it does me.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope"
Zephaniah 3:17 "The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
Malachi 3:16 "Then those who feared (reverenced) the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name."
1 Corinthians 2:9 Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
2 Peter 1:10,11 "Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble: for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
1 John 3:2 "Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is."
Revelation 21:4 "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
SC 64 "Do not draw back in despair, we shall often have to bow down and weep at the feet of Jesus because of our short comings and mistakes, but we are not to be discouraged, even if we are over come by the enemy, we are not cast off, nor forsaken and rejected of God. No, Christ is at the right hand of God, who also makes, intercession for us."
Did these verses give you some hope? I hope so, hope is something we all need to spur us on in this life. It seems like things keep getting worse and worse until some people don't seem to have any hope at all, but there is hope in God, that is the only place there is hope for our future, so I encourage you to read these verses over and over and look up some more texts to give you hope, this is just a beginning.
