So The Poor Have Hope – Hope Bible Verses.

Biblical Job lost his children, his wealth and his health. And yet despite the cruel blows life dealt him, he held onto Hope for better. He trusted that his God and redeemer would rescue him. And God did indeed restore back to him all he had lost.

So what lessons can we learn from Job about Hope in the midst of despair, hopelessness, pain and suffering?

1. However difficult the situation, however tempting it maybe please don’t let go of your integrity. Integrity is a part of righteousness which is also a component of the full armor of God for spiritual warfare. Maintain your integrity because someday it will give you hope for better times. 

Is not your reverence your confidence?

And the integrity of your ways your hope?

Job 4:6

2. If you are poor. Whether spiritually, materially, emotionally or in any way, have Hope and assurance that the Lord God almighty will save you from your poverty and need if you maintain your trust in him.

15 But He saves the needy from the sword,

From the mouth of the mighty,

And from their hand.

16 So the poor have hope,

And injustice shuts her mouth.

Job 5:15-16

3. If you put your trust in God and his promises you have cause to Hope because the Lord makes secure those who seek him for help and trust in him.

18 And you would be secure, because there is hope;

Yes, you would dig around you, and take your rest in safety.

19 You would also lie down, and no one would make you afraid;

Yes, many would court your favor.

Job 11:18-19

4. If there is Hope for a Tree which can be easily cut down, there is Hope for you and whatever situation you are facing right now.

7 “For there is hope for a tree,

If it is cut down, that it will sprout again,

And that its tender shoots will not cease.

8 Though its root may grow old in the earth,

And its stump may die in the ground,

9 Yet at the scent of water it will bud

And bring forth branches like a plant.

Job 14:7-9

5. If you find yourself questioning life and God like Job when life deals you a cruel hand, please put your Hope and trust in the Lord Jesus because he never fails and he will never fail anyone who comes to him for help.

11 “What strength do I have, that I should hope?

And what is my end, that I should prolong my life?

12 Is my strength the strength of stones?

Or is my flesh bronze?

13 Is my help not within me?

And is success driven from me?

14 “To him who is afflicted, kindness should be shown by his friend,

Job 6:11-14

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.”

O Holy One of Israel.

She shall sing there,
As in the days of her youth,
As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.
16 “And it shall be, in that day,”
Says the Lord,
“That you will call Me ‘My Husband,’
And no longer call Me ‘My Master,’

Hosea 2:14-16

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
