Spring is in full bloom! It’s a beautiful time 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 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.
To begin our Spring Bible Verses, I’ve chosen one of my favorites… This scripture isn’t so much about spring, but instead a new thing that God wants to do in our lives. And since spring is about renewal, I thought it was the perfect place to start. I hope it speaks to you the same way it does to me.
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.
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 short list of the many verses about flowers…
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.
Song of Solomon 2:12
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.

Without the spring rain, we wouldn’t have the blessing of brightly colored flowers. Likewise, these scriptures give us a picture of God’s blessings falling on us like rain…
Ask rain from the Lord at the time of the spring rain—
The Lord who makes the storm clouds;
And He will give them showers of rain, vegetation in the field to each man.
In the light of a king’s face is life,
And his favor is like a cloud with the spring rain.
Let my teaching drop as the rain,
My speech distill as the dew,
As raindrops on the tender herb,
And as showers on the grass.
Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
They waited for me as for the rain,
And they opened their mouth wide as for the spring rain.
Springtime means fresh growth, not only for the plants for us too. May we rejoice in God’s truth during this season of renewal…
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
As we close out our time together reading Bible Verses that will Renew Your Spirit… This last one is my prayer for myself and for you this spring and always. 😊
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
