With all of the bad news, there seems to be little cause for optimism this year. We yearn for peace on earth but are confronted by conflict between politicians, nations, and interest groups. As vulnerable individuals we experience the pain of a broken world aching to be made whole again. This is not only true for this year but has been the state of our world for generations.
Yet even in our suffering, we must never lose hope of a better day that is coming. The apostle Paul described it like this, “What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal later. All creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay” (Romans 8:18–21 NLT).
Be hopeful. God is working in our world. Through all of the pain and conflict, in the personal and private tragedies as well as in the public world-shaking crises – our God is at work to bring about His peace on earth.
These Bible verses about Hope will do just that for you. Take a deep breath and read through them slowly. We all too often rush through things in life ( I am guilty of this myself) and miss what God is telling us. God led you to these verses today for a reason, don’t let them go unread!
