Hope Bible Verses
But the LORD watches over those who fear him,
those who rely on his unfailing love.
No, the LORD’s delight is in those who fear him,
those who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.
I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance;
therefore, I will hope in him!”
The LORD is good to those who depend on him,
to those who search for him.
So it is good to wait quietly
for salvation from the LORD.
Rejoice in our confident hope.
Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
Such things were written in the Scriptures long
ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and
encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s
promises to be fulfilled.
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you
completely with joy and peace because you trust in him.
Then you will overflow with confident hope through the
power of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 13:10-13
But when the time of perfection comes, these
partial things will become useless.
When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned
as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling
reflections in a mirror, but then we will see
everything with perfect clarity. All that I know
now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know
everything completely, just as God now knows
me completely. Three things will last
forever—faith, hope, and love—and the
greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 15:51-54
But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We
will not all die, but we will all be transformed!
It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye,
when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet
sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever.
And we who are living will also be transformed.
For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies
that will never die; our mortal bodies must be
transformed into immortal bodies.
Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed
into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light
so that you can understand the confident hope he
has given to those he called—his holy people who are
his rich and glorious inheritance.
1 Peter 1:13
So prepare your minds for action and exercise
self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation
that will come to you when Jesus Christ is
revealed to the world.
