Bible Verses About New Life
On the earth, the Springtime is a time of renewal for the flowers to reawaken, and bloom.
The farmers plow their land in the Spring. Then they fertilize it and plant their crops. This is a good symbolism of new life to set deep into your soul. This Spring, take some time to
meditate on the following new life Bible verses to prepare your heart for what God wants to grow in you in the year ahead.
New Life Bible Verses:
Revelation 21:5: “And the one sitting on the throne said, ‘Look, I am making everything new!’ And then he said to me, ‘Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.'”
Spring gives us a glimpse of the promise that God has given us about new life, and renewal in Revelation 21:5, a promise that one day, everything will be made new.
Romans 6:4: “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”
The moment that you are born again, your sins are forgiven and you are filled with the Holy Spirit and you have become a child of God. This is very exciting! You are now a new creation in Christ!
Ephesians 2:4-5: “But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead.”
God is rich in mercy, great in forgiveness, and amazing in grace. He loves you with unconditional, and unending love. We have sinned, ignored God, and rejected His word.
However, with merciful love, God has forgiven you and me our sins and brought us salvation through His son Jesus, who died for our sins. By the grace of God, we are saved!
Colossians 3:10: “Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.”
You are a new creation in Christ and when you surrender your life to God and His Holy Spirit, He can work in you to transform you more and more into the likeness of Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17: “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
Once the Holy Spirit lives within us, God begins to peel back the layers of sin and doubt that cloud our vision of Him and which prevent us from reflecting His image in our lives.
This transformation takes time as God strips off our bad habits and old ways of thinking. He wants to renew our minds. He wants us to think His thoughts and follow His ways.
That is why it is wise to prayerfully read scripture every day and to ask the Holy Spirit to give you understanding as you read it.
Isaiah 43:18-19: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
God calls us to let go of “former things,” so we can cling to our new identity in Christ.
Lamentations 3:22-24: “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
The Prophet Jeremiah had been writing about how difficult and depressing his circumstances were in captivity. But then suddenly, in the middle of this bleak account, his thoughts take a startling positive turn toward the character of God.
God’s unmistakable pattern is seen over and over again: disobedience brings consequences, but confession always brings forgiveness and renewal.
When Jeremiah meditated on this, he remembered that God had many mercies available all over again, every single day. God redeems our time and circumstances.
Bible Verses About Spring
Isaiah 44:3-4: “For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children. They will thrive like watered grass, like willows on a riverbank.”
What a blessing! As we satisfy our thirst to know God, He promises to bless our families too. He promises that our children will thrive.
Isaiah 58:11: “The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.”
God promises to satisfy our hunger and thirst for Him and His righteousness. He will continually guide us in the way we should go, and teach us all things, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
So make time in your busy day to sit in God’s presence praying and reading your Bible. He promises to refresh you.
Song Of Solomon 2:12-13: “Spring flowers are in blossom all over. The whole world’s a choir – and singing! Spring warblers are filling the forest with sweet arpeggios. Lilacs are exuberantly purple and perfumed, and cherry trees fragrant with blossoms. Oh, get up, dear friend, my fair and beautiful lover – come to me!”
Oh! Don’t you just love this flower scripture! Can you smell Spring as you read this verse and I can hear the birds singing too!
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8: “For everything, there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.”
This is one of my personal favorite Bible verses about seasons in our lives. We may experience seasons of great abundance or great loss. We can experience great joy or great pain.
But the beautiful thing about all of this is that none of these seasons or experiences are wasted; God can use everything we experience and make it beautiful.
Bible Verses About Rain:
The Bible speaks a lot about Spring and rain. Rain in the Bible symbolizes blessing. Just as rain brings much-needed nutrients, God’s blessings give us what we need to thrive.
His desire for us is to be constantly refreshed, growing, fruitful, and healthy. His blessings are the fulfillment of all his promises! And we find His promises throughout the Bible.
Here are my favorite rain Bible verses.
Rain Bible Verses:
Hosea 6:3: “Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.”
Zechariah 10:1: “Ask the Lord for rain in the spring, for he makes the storm clouds. And he will send showers of rain so every field becomes a lush pasture.”
Deuteronomy 11:14: “Then he will send the rains in their proper seasons—the early and late rains—so you can bring in your harvests of grain, new wine, and olive oil.”
Deuteronomy 32:2: “Let my teaching fall on you like rain; let my speech settle like dew. Let my words fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants.”
When my son was young, this was a verse that I would pray for the teachers in his school. It is a powerful tool to pray scripture and praying that the teachers’ words would fall on their students like rain and settle like dew is a beautiful prayer to pray.
It is also a perfect prayer for parents to pray too!
Acts 14:17: “Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.”
Isaiah 45:8: “You heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it; I, the LORD, have created it.”
Isaiah 55:10-11: “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”
Joel 2:23: “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.”
Leviticus 26:4: “I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit.”
I hope you enjoyed digging for scripture treasure about what the Bible has to say about Spring and New Life.
I hope it both refreshes and renews you for the seasons in your life that are ahead of you. God longs to refresh you and to reign in your life.
He longs to ‘quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields.’ Isaiah 44:3. God wants to renew and restore your life.
God bless. Karen.
