236. What God Has to Say About Hope


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.
