This time of year, we all start longing for a warm breeze and a burst of sunshine. If your mood changes with the weather, it’s important to remember that God never changes. Even after a long winter—either in the climate or in your heart—we can rest assured our Heavenly Father always brings back the spring.
Here are some encouraging verses to focus on this week, to remind us that God is working above us and below us all the time. He makes every seed blossom and every storm cloud pass, even when all we can see is mud and rain.
Obedience brings blessing.
“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers” (Psalm 1:1–3).
Do you delight in God’s Word?
What are the advantages of following God’s commands and delighting in Him?
God will never let you down; He’s a sure thing.
“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” (Hosea 6:3, NLT).
Do you desire to know God more?
Do you believe He hears you and answers your call?
God is always in control.
“He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning” (Daniel 2:21).
Who is in charge of the entire world?
Do you trust God to guide the details of your life?
God is our provider.
“He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate—bringing forth food from the earth” (Psalm 104:14).
Is worry a problem in your life?
Why can you trust God to provide everything you need?
Seasons change, but God does not.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
Our feelings and circumstances may change, but God never does.
How can this truth bring you comfort?
If possible, spend some time in nature this spring. Keep your eyes open for budding flowers, green leaves, and birds building nests. Let these be a sign of God’s promise to renew us—not just in season, but also someday in heaven. Spring is just a glimpse of what’s waiting for us there!
