Why You Need Hope?
Hope Is An Act Of Faith!
What Is The Hope If You Are Christian?
Most people understand hope as wishful thinking, as in “I hope something will happen.” This is not what the Bible means by hope. The biblical definition of hope is “confident expectation.” Hope is a firm assurance regarding things that are unclear and unknown (Romans 8:24-25; Hebrews 11:1, Hebrews 11:7).
Hope is a fundamental component of the life of the righteous (Proverbs 23:18). Without hope, life loses its meaning (Lamentations 3:18; Job 7:6) and in death, there is no hope (Isaiah 38:18; Job 17:15).
The righteous who trust or put their hope in God will be helped (Psalm 28:7), and they will not be confounded, put to shame, or disappointed (Isaiah 49:23). The righteous, who have this trustful hope in God, have general confidence in God’s protection and help (Jeremiah 29:11) and are free from fear and anxiety (Psalm 46:2-3).

What Does The Word Hope Mean?
The word hope means “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen,” and it is one of the most precious human emotions. When we hope, and that hope is deferred, it makes us heartsick, but when something hoped for is fulfilled, the Bible says, it is “a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12).
The feeling of hope is central to every good story—we want a happy ending, and even though the worst circumstances, our desire to see that ending occur is what keeps us reading. The same is true in life. A person who has hope can live through terrible circumstances by keeping their focus on that desired outcome. But when hope is gone, grief is complete (1 Thessalonians 4:13).
