Need a boost of HOPE? 9 Promises from God

It happens to us all at one time or another. Life comes crashing in, weighing us down with burdens and cares of all kinds. It’s easy to give in to our emotions, but it isn’t the healthiest response—or the most helpful. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by life, read and absorb these promises from your heavenly Father, precious reminders of His deep, never-ending love and concern for you!

1. “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me” (Psalm 138:7). Whatever troubles perplex you in this life, God is always beside you, reaching out to deliver you.

2. “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the LORD” (Psalm 31:24). In any situation, God will give you courage from above if you put your trust in Him.

3. “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’ ” (Deuteronomy 33:27). There could be no better refuge than the all-powerful God of the universe whose strong but gentle arms will always support and defend you without fail!

4. “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength” (Isaiah 40:29). Though this world often saps your strength, God is an unwavering source of power.

5. “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27). Jesus will provide His peace to enable you to rise above any challenge.

6. “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6). It is God’s intention to save you for eternity; He won’t give up on you!

7. “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6, 7). Trust that God is guiding you and wants you to place all your worries into His capable hands.

8. “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1, 2). Jesus, the author of your faith, will give you all the stamina you need to carry you through.

9. “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38, 39). Nothing can separate you from His love—it’s impossible! Be encouraged in the knowledge that God is with you always and His love for you is rock solid!
