Scriptures Against Hopelessness

These scriptures on hopelessness will give you hope and will build your faith. Confess and meditate on them to win the fight against hopelessness.  The whole fight is about not losing Hope. Allow the hope of God to flow into you. Remember, there is a real Person (God) behind each and every one of these promises. He promised them to you for a reason – to help you.

Depression is the emotional result of hopelessness. Joy is the emotional result of hope. Peace is the emotional result of faith.

God’s hope encourages, motivates, and keeps you on the road to faith, peace, and victory. Hopelessness breeds and creates the ‘feeling‘ of depression. Fight it with the Word of God. And if you suffer from deep ongoing depression, PLEASE READ THIS – Helping Others Is God’s Prescription for Depression. Send me a comment, we love you  and we want to help you. You are important and you have value. You will get out of this hole.

  • Angela Bediako

    Please pray for me. I have recently been feeling very low and feeling life is not worth it. I am a pastor.

    • Angela – Realize that this is an attack of the Devil. It is a spiritual attack to nullify our work and take us out of the fight. It is in the air, and its desired result is passivity. I know, it is attacking many.

      Read the positive sections of the New Testament and take the comments personally. They are meant to be take personally. You are a member of the Kingdom of God (the Church) and you are a minister. There is a target on your back and the only protection is taking the word of God literally and choosing to not be ruled by your feelings and emotions. It is simple but not easy.

      Speak the scriptures to yourself until the presence of them gets deep inside of you. It is a time for faith and faith believes what God says, over what we may see and what we may feel.

      I feel the same, I bet many of us are feeling the same thing. It is rampant and must be fought. You are part of the front lines in this battle; you must fight. We need you. God needs you. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world, even OUR faith. Go get’m tiger. Rex

    I am going through a time of hopelessness and feeling alone in the world. I have prayed to God to take this burden or show me a way out. After reading these stories and prayers I do not feel so alone. Thank you. I need to regain faith and trust in my husband. Please someone pray for me.

      KP, I just prayed for you. God is in your life. He loves you and cares deeply for you. Pray often. Fear and hopelessness is of the devil. He lies to us all the time. Get on your knees and pray. Jesus is real. God is real.

    Would someone please want to pray for me?

    It’s a long story, I hope you want to take the effort to read.

    As a child I was very gentle and kind and believed in God. Then some bad things happened, I was sexually abused and got depressed, fearful and acted out. My parents, not knowing what happened, in despair called me a bad child and told me I ruined everything in the family. I lost all my self-worth.

    In my teens and twenties I put on a mask of happiness, but underneath was very insecure. I made some bad choices. I lost all my faith in God. I partied, used alcohol and some drugs, sought out adventure to silence my hurt. I let myself be seduced by men that were not good to me and passed by some kind and good men, that I could have been very happy with. I just never believed I was worth anything better. I tried to be loving, even to bad people, but did not recognize what was good or bad.

    In my late twenties I ended up with another “charming” boyfriend. I got pregnant, unplanned.

    A wonder happened – I did not know I was pregnant and was about to take a medicine that would harm the baby. That night I had an extremely clear dream, a warning, that I would have a baby boy! I tested, discovered my pregnancy and did not take the medicine. I am very grateful.

    I had another clear dream, telling me to escape the father of my son to protect my child, to be able to raise him a child of God and not be harmed. I did not listen, wanted a family. After that, the father became controlling and abusive and threatening, also towards my son.

    Finally, 6 months after my sons birth – I got out.

    The father went to court to get control over our son. For 2.5 years I was so scared and without hope, because I could not prove his abuse. I felt so guilty and sinful, but sometimes I felt Gods hope again, his presence felt so loving and overwhelming. In the end a miracle happened! They finally found out something was wrong, everything flipped around and the Judge decided a no contact order.

    Now. I’m 32. My son is 3. We’re finally safe, we have support of our family and I am so grateful. I am opening my eyes for what’s good and what not. But my life is in ruins. No life partner, almost no contact with friends, lost my job. I feel lonely and sad that I ruined my life. I long for someone to love, a real family for my son.

    And…I still find it difficult to have hope and to believe in God. I have felt his presence so strongly at times. And some great things happened to protect my son. But there is doubt – why would a loving God allow for other children to be abused? Would there be hope for me, too, for a normal life? Is He really there? I want to believe!

    Does anyone have words of hope and faith for me? Please? Thank you!

      F. I don’t know you but there is so much I would like to share with you. I personally know your story. It was like reading about myself. I got through it and my heart wants so so badly to share with you my journey to God. I will go out on a limb and ask you to contact me on Facebook. If you want to remain anonymous, that’s fine. Even if you make a fake Facebook page just for this, my soul is telling me this is the right thing to do and it will help you. Just find my name on Facebook Kayln McGee.. The page will say the exact name “Kayln TheMrs McGee. I pray for you and your son and that you will talk to me. There are still people who care about others in this world… I am one of them.

      I prayed for you. You will find a person but let God do his will. He wants you to find someone equally yoked and you have to listen to God. He will direct. Pray often. Our greatest rewards come through Faith. God is with you right now and hears your prayers. God does not want us to be alone, unhappy, or afraid. I do not know you so I cannot say but this was my personal experience. I wanted to do things on my time and bad results happened. I had to grow in my faith and walk in Christ before I was ready for the person I was praying for. Now I have a God-Sent wife. Literally. She was praying as well and God told her in a dream about me. We are now very happily married. It will happen. Pray often and listen to Jesus on what he is telling you through scripture and in prayer.

    I have lost my faith in humanity. I know it’s not what God wants for me but so many people- strangers and people I know alike- seem to be so detached, selfish, evil and money hungry. It almost seems like there are very few people who care about something other than themselves. Logically, I know there are warm, loving, kind and generous people left in this world but I am hard pressed to actually see them. I cry over the sick and dying, I experience empathy and try to reach out to others in need. Yet, people rarely bother to reach out to me or others when in need. I need to forge a stronger relationship with The Lord so that maybe He can restore my faith in mankind. I pray that He will send those who still care about other people my way so that maybe I can see that my feeling that there are more bad people in the world than good is wrong. Please pray for peace in my soul, healing in my heart, and for a closer walk with God. Please whisper a prayer for me.

  • The Lord bless you, and keep you.
    The Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you.
    The Lord lift up His counterance on you and give you peace. Numbers 6:22-27

  • I’m goin through a lot. My first child is suffering from brain damage resulting from severe hydrocephalus which was left untreated for a long time. Everytn seems hopeless, I’m praying to God to intervene

  • Please pray for me to be restored a hundred fold in my mind, body and spirit. Also pray for my grandson to be set free from everything, and everyone. Thank you.

  • I feel so empty and lost, it’s like everything is crashing down on top of me. Sometimes I just feel like giving up. I have given so much of myself to people and now I am so tired that I just want to be left alone, it’s like nobody seems to care about all my hurt and pain I’m dealing with.

  • Beka

    I feel hopeless in love and have been used a lot, these helped immensely.

    • Yoli

      Beka I can feel you are a loving person. So sorry you were mistreated keep your eyes on Jesus. You are on the right track speak the scriptures on Scriptures on Healing From Abuse as stated on these site. As you declare these scriptures you will see and feel the Lord helping you. Your spirit will start to get stronger scriptures tell us when the heart is turned to the Lord. The veil is taken away and you are able to experience His Presence. God bless you on your journey with the Lord.

      Praise the Lord!
      Yoli

    I am having a rough night, and this helped. Even if just a little. I am glad I clicked this one, of all links.

  • SySy

    I need the prayer of hope to keep striving. I recently lost a job after 3 weeks and have been severely depressed and low confidence trying to figure out why they let me go. They just said it wasn’t working out
    But GOD is my refuge and we see me through this hardship.
