When the sun is shining bright I feel amazing. I have more energy and I feel like I can accomplish anything I set out to do that day! The sun is millions of miles away and still has the ability to affect us. We know a lot more about the sun now then we did years ago. We have to wear sunscreen at all times and avoid long exposure to the sun. It can cause heat stroke and dehydration. The sun can be very dangerous. On the other hand the sun has many benefits! It provides nourishment and energy to all living things on Earth. The sun provides heat and light. We need the sun for many health benefits stress, immune support, blood circulation and much more! The sun is powerful!
When comparing God and the sun we see the connection. God at times can seem far away. God, just like the sun still has the ability to have a direct impact on our lives despite the distance! Like the sun, God has the power to both destroy and create. God is our healer, provider, and comforter much like the sun. "GOD is like the sun; you cannot look at it, but without it, you cannot look at anything else."-G.K. Chesterton. God lights our lives, guides us like the sun can guide us in navigational direction. We know that there will always be sunshine and sometimes we take it for granted. God is always present yet, we sometimes over look that presence. Without the sun there is no life and without God....well you already know!
God created the sun, the sun is life and life is….. God! The sun is our light, life, energy and heat. It reminds us of God's eternal presence in our lives. Our lives are determined by sunrise and sunset, a time for work and play and a time for rest. Even at night there is a light in the sky. Showing us that God is there even in our darkest times. The sun is God's great light shining in our lives!
For The Lord our God is our sun and shield.
He gives us grace and glory. Psalm 84:11 NLT
