These are summer Bible verses that should remind us of the wonder of God in every season and its importance. We rarely allow ourselves to enjoy each season as they come.
Sometimes we are overwhelmed by the things we haven’t achieved in the previous season or the losses we’ve had.
This is why I have selected 7 powerful Bible verses about summer that will remind us that God’s silence is not His absence in our lives. He is called El-Roi meaning ‘the God who sees me’.
What does the Bible say about summer?
Here are scriptures about summer that should remind us of what the Bible says about summer.
1. Summer is a time for growth
“As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”
Everything that God creates, from seed to tree, has the capacity to evolve. So it is okay to embrace growth.
Getting angry at corrections, skipping classes, and holding on to items you’ve outgrown should all be things of the past.
2. Summer is also the time for reconnection.
Running away from loved ones this summer just to avoid confronting past issues isn’t helpful to anyone.
Don’t hold on to bitterness or hatred because that would not make the offender realize their mistake. Rather, we become prisoners in our own prisons.
I know you’ve been wronged and you have the right to be angry but for how long. It can drain your peace of mind.
If you’re struggling with unforgiveness I’ll recommend one of the best books on forgiveness “Bait of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense by John Bevere.
This book has been a blessing to millions of people throughout the world and I believe it can help you on this journey of healing.
I also highly recommend that you take your heart to God daily. So that he can heal you and give you a fresh understanding of how to handle the issue.
3. Summer is also a time of refreshing
Do you give enough time to self-care? We are often busy pouring into other people that we pay little attention to our health.
This is also a great time to develop an intimate relationship with God. Pick up your Bible, get a great journal, and listen to the Holy Spirit.
You don’t need God to appear in your room with thunder and lightning; being still is enough😂.
What is a short bible verse for summer?
A short Bible verse that talks about summer can be found in Genesis 8:22 which says, “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
This text reminds us that there is time for everything on Earth. Things might not be working out the way we envision them to be but in due season we will see the manifestation of God’s promises in our lives.

But the king answered Araunah, “No, I will pay you for the land. I won’t offer to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for one and one-fourth pounds of silver.2 samuel 24:24 NCV

Cultivating the habit of saving will save you from embarrassment. As we know, many things will be advertised to get all our money, even the ones we don’t need now.
Spending all we have and borrowing from friends and the bank isn’t a good way to live.
No amount is too small to save because it will grow.
Practicing delayed gratification is a growth mindset we should all have. That pretty pink purse will still be available. Just be patient.
“So you will go out with joyIsaiah 55:12 NCV
and be led out in peace.
The mountains and hills will burst into song before you,
and all the trees in the fields will clap their hands.
Never allow anything to steal your joy this summer. If our challenges rob us of our happiness. We will not appreciate what we have.
What you currently have is somebody’s prayer point. Whoopsie!
Also, practice keeping the peace with all men. You don’t have to agree with everything people do, but you can practice walking in peace.
Summer is a great time to discover your untapped strength. Make out time to make it fun for you in the best way that you can.
It is your responsibility to keep yourself happy because no one owes us anything.
What scripture says about summer and winter?
In Psalm 74:16-17 TLB the scripture says,
Day and night alike belong to you; you made the starlight and the sun. 17 All nature is within your hands; you make the summer and the winter too.
This shows us that God is not surprised by nor alarmed by the events in our lives. As God’s children, we shouldn’t wait for horrible things to happen in our life before studying the Bible or praying to God.
When the winter season arrives, if we have previously strengthened our faith in God via ongoing communion with the Holy Spirit, we will have enough faith to see us through that season.
