Bible Verses About Hope and Heaven: Scriptures to Help Overcome Sadness, Depression, Difficulties

In a world with so much pain and suffering, the hopelessness in the capacity of mankind to still look forward to a better tomorrow is slowly diminishing. As people struggle every day to survive every roadblock and challenge on the way to a joyful and meaningful life, it seems that the world is intent in crushing every bit of optimism. During these trying times, it is best to look to the Bible for inspiration. As we strive to make sense of the sadness and trials in our lives, the Bible offers passages that could lighten our load and help us see the light at the end of the tunnel. Here are biblical verses about hope and heaven.

Bible verses about hope

Bible verses about heaven

[1] In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going. (John 14:2-4)

[2] See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18:10)

[3] But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. (Philippians 3:20-21)

[4] And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. (Daniel 2:44)

[5] Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.  No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:1-5)
