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.
Beautiful 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. One of my favorite things is watching the iris in my flower bed emerge from their slumber each year. Their purple and yellow blooms are like sunshine in my soul.
So, here’s a short list 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.
Uplifting 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.

the thirsty ground bubbling springs.
In the haunts where jackals once lay,

The unclean will not journey on it;
wicked fools will not go about on it.
