In hope he believed against hope, that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.”
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Lamentations 3:21 – 22
But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end.
And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
Romans 15: 19, 24 – 26
If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied … but then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
Surely there is a future,and your hope will not be cut off.
Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love.
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Are there any among the false gods of the nations that can bring rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Are you not he, O LORD our God? We set our hope on you, for you do all these things.
