236. What God Has to Say About Hope

Bible

God knows how important hope is to all of us, and speaks to us of that hope 166 times in His Word, including:

 

  • 19 times in Job
  • 32 times in Psalms
  • 86 times in the New Testament

Here are two of my favorites:

Isaiah 40:31

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Romans 12:12

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
