The Sun Always Rises

I am the Lord, and I do not change.  Malachi 3:8a NLT

the sun always risesI love to watch the sunrise, preferably at the beach, but I’m happy to watch it anywhere.

Sunrise is my favorite time of day. One morning, as I stood on the beach anticipating the sunrise, I thought about how I could always count on the sun to rise.

No matter what the world is facing or how many clouds are in the sky, the sun will rise each morning in the East and set every evening in the West. In a world full of uncertainty, when sometimes the clouds obstruct my view, the sun still rises and sets. There aren’t many things in life that are dependable. People fail us, jobs end, markets crash, and dishwashers break, but the sun will rise each morning.

The sun is dependable like our heavenly Father. Sometimes, doubts cloud our focus on Him, but He’s always there. He holds me when I’m at my breaking point and guides me throughout the day. He’s there when I rise and lay my head down at night. Even though the seasons change, He never does. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. No matter what the world throws our way, God is there. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and perfect.

The next time circumstances are uncertain and cloud over you, focus on God’s presence. He will walk with you through the difficult, the easy, and the holy.

How can you be more aware of God’s presence with you?
