When a crisis hits, fear often comes with it. People are scared for their jobs and their health. They believe their way of living will change forever.
Those things may be in danger during a crisis. And it’s okay to be scared. Yet, there is hope out there.
We can… No, we will get through this crisis and others.
In times of crisis, I love going to the word of God. In scripture, there is hope and joy and a longing that is revealed.
I want to take a look at 7 pieces of scriptures that will bring hope during a crisis.
7 Scriptures To Bring Hope During A Crisis
1. Hebrews 10:23 – Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.
When we believe in Jesus Christ, we are believing into the hope of eternal life, sanctification, and the overwhelming love Jesus Christ brings to us. During times of crisis, we can lose sight of this hope.
We forget the goodness Christ has brought into our lives. That He will bring into our lives.
Remember, Jesus Christ is faithful. He will come through. There is hope in this!
2. Romans 15:13 – May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
God is a God of hope. He is longing to fill us with joy and peace. All we need to do is trust in Him.
Regain your trust in the Lord. Your trust in Him will allow Him to fill you with the things He desires for you.
Isn’t this awesome? I love this verse tells us who our God is. He is hope. He will fill us with joy and peace when we trust.
Be filled with hope today!
3. Deuteronomy 31:6 – Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
Our God is with us. He stands before us and goes out with us. This is powerful to remember in times of anxiousness and doubt.
The world may be falling apart. You may feel lost and lonely. You’re not. God is with you. He won’t leave you or forsake you.
Take heart in this verse. Have hope in He whom you trust.
4. Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
There is power in this verse. The Bible once again reminds us of who Jesus is and what he desires for us.
The Lord has thoughts of peace, not of evil. He desires to give you a future. He desires to give you hope.
Lean on the Lord in times of crisis. Let Him comfort you when you are scared and afraid.
5. Lamentations 3:21-23 – But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.
I really like this verse when it comes to the idea of hope. Lamentations reminds us that the love of Jesus never ends. It continues on forever. His mercies? They are new every morning. We can’t outrun them.
When the world is crashing down around you, have hope in the fact Jesus still loves you. He has mercy for you. He is faithful.
I can’t think of anything better to remember during this time. He is good and He always will be.
6. Psalm 10:17 – O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear.
This verse reminds us that the Lord doesn’t ignore us. He hears us. He hears our cries and He is there for us.
What does he do? He strengthens our hearts. He inclines his ears to our cries. Our Lord is there for us.
Have hope in this during a crisis. You are never alone. Jesus is with you. He’s listening and acting on your behalf.
7. Philippians 3:20 – Our citizenship is in heaven, and from it, we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ
And, if all else fails, this verse reminds us of where our true citizenship lies. It is not in this world. It is in heaven.
We are not to worry about what today or tomorrow is to bring. We are to wait on our Savior. We are to hope on Jesus Christ.
We’re not promised tomorrow. But we are promised a better future. One where there is no more pain or suffering. Remember this. Have hope in this.
