What does the Bible say about hope?

Goal: Hope To You
Theme: Devotional
Difficulty: ⭐️ (1/10)

“I hope my team wins!”
“I hope the grocery store has what I’m looking for!”
“I hope I get to see my friends soon!”
We toss around the word “hope” very lightly. But what does hope really mean?

To trust in, wait for, look for, or desire something or someone; or to expect something beneficial in the future.

Today's action step is intentionally simple. Spend a few minutes today thinking about the hope you have from God, in His word, and in His love. Here are a few Psalms you can meditate on:

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him. (Psalm 62:5)

You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in your word. (Psalm 119:114)

But the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,
in those who hope in his steadfast love. (Psalm 147:11)

Yes, in the English language, we tend to use hope and wish in the same way. I notice Spanish treats hope in a more biblically accurate way, as in "to wait for, to expect," implying really believing it is going to happen. We can hope and trust in the Lord, because He is faithful and true.
