Why You Need Hope?
What Is The Hope If You Are Christian?
Most people understand hope as wishful thinking, as in, “I expect something will happen.” This is not what the Bible means it. The biblical definition 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 optimism, 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 belief 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 confidence in God, have a general belief 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 believe, and that dream is deferred, it makes us heartsick, but when something desired for is fulfilled, the Bible says, it is “a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12).
The feeling of expectation 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 faith can live through terrible circumstances by keeping their focus on that desired outcome. But when confidence is gone, grief is complete (1 Thessalonians 4:13).
