Do you wonder… What does God say about Spring in the Bible? These Bible Verses for Spring that will Renew Your Spirit will tell you exactly what this season means for nature and for you!
Spring is in full bloom! It’s a beautiful season of renewal in nature. The trees are budding, and the flowers are peeking out. They’ve come to life after a long winter’s rest.
Just like them, we’ve been tucked away during the cold winter months and we’re ready to spring to life again too. And nothing accompanies the backdrop of spring better than the many scriptures about this glorious event.
So, today we’re reading Bible Verses for Spring that will Renew Your Spirit. Together, let’s fill our minds with God’s Word, allow it to take root in our hearts, and renew our tired spirits. In no time at all, we’ll be ready to bloom like the flowers of the field.
To begin our Spring Bible Verses, I’ve chosen one of my favorites… This scripture isn’t so much about spring, but instead it’s a fresh start that God wants to give to us. And since spring is about renewal, I thought it was a great way to start our Bible Study. I hope it speaks to you the same way it does to me.
A New Season
Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth:
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
The same sentiment of “spring forth” is echoed again later in Isaiah…
For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Bible Verses about Flowers
Spring wouldn’t be spring without flowers. Their vibrant pops of color are a metaphor of the delicate balance between life and death and represent the new life we have in Jesus. So, here’s a shortlist of the many Bible verses about flowers that inspire me during the season of spring…
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.
I am the rose of Sharon,
And the lily of the valleys.
Like a lily among thorns,
So is my love among the daughters.
Song of Solomon 2:1-2
So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.
As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it, and it is]gone,
And its place remembers it no more.
He comes forth like a flower and fades away;
He flees like a shadow and does not continue.
Spring Rains Scriptures
Without the spring rains, we wouldn’t have the blessing of bright colors on the spring flowers. Likewise, these spring scriptures give us a picture of God’s blessings falling on us like a welcoming rain shower.
Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime; it is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone.
Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
Deuteronomy 32:2 NIV
Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.
Hosea 6:3 NIV
They waited for me as for the rain,
And they opened their mouth wide as for the spring rain.
Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
Joel 2:23 NIV
In the light of a king’s face there is life, and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain.
Sometimes our lives become like a thirsty land, dried up and desperate for Living Water. But the Lord God Almighty has a way of turning a barren wasteland into an oasis. If we have a little faith and follow Him, He will restore and renew us with an abundance of fresh water.
These Bible verses for Spring remind us to drink the Living Water of Jesus every day and allow the Spirit of God to bless us…
For I will pour water on the thirsty land,
and streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring,
and my blessing on your descendants.
They will spring up like grass in a meadow,
like poplar trees by flowing streams.
The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the Lord,
the splendor of our God.
Isaiah 35:1-2 NIV
To you, O Lord, I call.
For fire has devoured
the pastures of the wilderness,
and flame has burned
all the trees of the field.
Even the beasts of the field pant for you
because the water brooks are dried up,
and fire has devoured
the pastures of the wilderness.
Joel 1:19-20 ESV
I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
Springtime for our Spiritual Lives
The spring season is a time for new beginnings and new growth in nature. But springtime showers of rain mean fresh growth, not only for the plants for us too. May we rejoice in God’s truth during this season of renewal…
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18
Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it.
1 Chronicles 16:38
Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.
James 5:7 NIV
So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil.
Deuteronomy 11:13-14 NIV
He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.
Psalm 1:3 ESV
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
The fig tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.
Song of Songs 2:11-13
Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Seasons in the Bible
God created the seasons for a purpose. And all four seasons are represented in the Bible. Each season shows us more and more about God’s divine nature and the power He has over creation. Here are a few scriptures to teach us God’s reason for the season…
And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so.
He made the moon for the seasons;
The sun knows the place of its setting.

He is ready to turn the storm clouds overhead into a sunny day. And with a little help from the Holy Spirit renew our hearts and minds for the season ahead.
So, as we close out our time together reading Bible Verses for Spring that will Renew Your Spirit… This last verse is my prayer for myself and for you during this season of spring and always…
