11 Bible Stories That Gives Us Hope

Romans 15:4 NIV – “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.”

Many Christians still don’t understand just how relevant and necessary the Bible is to their lives. Many of us can quote the psalmist who says ‘thy word have in hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee.’ Many of us can also say ‘thy word is a lamp onto my feet and a light onto my path.’ Even ‘the grass withers and the flower fadeth but the word of our God stands forever.’ This is all true but sometimes we also forget another role that the Bible plays – it shows us how to endure and have hope.

Here are 11 Ways the Bible Gives Us Hope:

1. Abraham

It gives us hope that like Abraham who uprooted from his land and people and followed God’s command to go to a land that He will show him, faith in God does not go unrewarded. It also shows us that He is with us every step of the way.

2. Gideon

It gives us hope that like Gideon we can have the victory as long as God is on our side. Numbers do not matter with God. Once we have Him we are the majority.

3. Daniel

It gives us hope that like Daniel we can walk into the lion’s den with all the odds against us and still come out victorious. 

4. Mordecai

It gives us hope that like Mordecai if we are faithful to God and leave things in His hands, He will deal with our enemies. They cannot prevail against us.

5. Hannah

It gives us hope that like Hannah, when people write us off and ridicule and mock us, once we remain fervent in prayer, God steps in His own time and puts them to silence.

6. David

It gives us hope that like David when God’s favour is upon us, He protects us from any attack of the enemy and we will always be victorious.

7. Nehemiah

It gives us hope that like Nehemiah, the task may be great, the workers few and the mockers many but anything done in God’s name and for God will succeed and prosper.

8. Job

It gives us hope that like Job, persevering through trials and testings and remaining faithful to God is rewarded by Him. We come out battered and bruised but with newfound faith in God.

9. The Disciples

It gives us hope that like the disciples, we may not be wealthy or learned but we can do great things for God if we allow Him to take full control and work in our lives.

10. Paul

It gives us hope that like Paul we have not gone too far for God’s grace to reach us and take us to the place He wants us to be; to make us into the person He wants us to be.

11. Stephen

It gives us hope that like Stephen, if we remain firm to the end, we will spend eternity with Jesus.
