The sunrise Bible verse is the ideal representation of God’s action in the world. When the Bible was written, people believed that the sky was a barrier that no man could cross. The sun rises and sets every day in a different location, and this belief also originated when dawn was particularly bright.

Sunrise bible verse

Sunrise is our chance to begin again with God, to be present in the moment of today with faith, to let go of yesterday and surrender our fears to the night to God with trust that he will handle it.

Many individuals were inspired to have hope and faith by the sun’s emergence each morning in the east. The sunrise is the subject of another urban legend that goes around the globe.

Habakkuk 3:4

His coming is as brilliant as the sunrise. Rays of light flash from his hands, where his awesome power is hidden

Habakkuk 3:4(NLT)

His brightness was as the light; brightness appeareth like light, The sunlight is meant, as Job 31:26Job 37:21Isaiah 18:4He had horns coming out of his hand;i.e. rays of light on either side. The comparison of the first rays of light to the horns of the gazelle, according to Keil, is common in Arabic poetry (comp. Exodus 34:29, 30).

In the original passage, Deuteronomy 33:2, we read, “At his right hand was a fiery Law unto them” – a reference to the two tables of stone, perhaps resplendent with light.

The “hand” in our text is a general expression, and is not to be taken with any special reference to lightning launched by the hand (which is not a scriptural expression), nor to works effected by God’s agency, but simply as signifying that the light of his presence streamed forth from both sides, i.e. everywhere.

There was the hiding of his power. There, in that ineffable light, was the hiding place of his majesty. He clothes himself with light as with a garment (Psalm 104:2), and the splendor is the mantle of that presence which the eye of man cannot behold.

Psalm 5:3

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly

Psalm 5:3(NIV)

David adds in Psalm 5:3 that he not only prays but also watches. He was consistent and expectant watching for an answer to his prayer, this symbolized a guard on a watch-tower diligently watching for whoever was approaching.

This is the posture of every believer, not just to pray but watch for the answer and watch deliberately with great confidence that the answer will come.

Psalm 118:24

The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad

Psalm 118:24(NIV)

Each day is a rich and precious gift from God, with new grace and new opportunities. Jesus says that we have only this one day, and we must not be anxious for the day tomorrow. Even though it has gone bad before, it can be completely new and glorious today.

If there is something that bothers our conscience from the past, we have abundant grace and power to bring it into order today.

Matthew 5:16

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven

Matthew 5:16(NIV)

It matters so much that we do the good works God gives us to do. Otherwise, we will stop being useful as salt and light. If we are a good example, if we “let our light shine,” then when other people see our good examples,  they will know that we love our Heavenly Father and they, too, will want to honor Him.

Luke 1:78

Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us

Luke 1:78(NLT)

It was through God’s grace and love that the Light of salvation, which had been promised in the garden of Eden so long ago, was ready to pierce the deep darkness of the world, for it was through the tender mercy of our same gracious God that the Light of His salvation was finally dawning.

Spiritual darkness had been the sorry state of man for many centuries, but at last, the people who were walking in darkness were to see a great Light, and on those living in the land of the shadow of death, the radiance of God was at last dawning.

And so Zacharias announced: “Because of the tender mercy of our God, His Light from on high has visited us – to shine its light on all those who live in deep darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Psalm 5:3

My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up

Psalm 5:3(NKJV)

David adds in Psalm 5:3 that he not only prays but also watches. He was consistent and expectant watching for an answer to his prayer, this symbolized a guard on a watchtower who diligently watched for whoever was approaching.

This is the posture of every believer, not just to pray but watch for the answer and watch deliberately with great confidence that the answer will come.

Psalm 126:5

Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy

Psalm 126:5(NKJV)

This verse speaks about how we should remember to look ahead of our struggles and sin and that the tears we shed today will be like seeds that are planted in a field that in time through much toil and suffering will rise to a great harvest of joy and thankfulness.

Psalm 88:13

But to You I have cried out, O LORD, And in the morning my prayer comes before You

Psalm 88:13(NKJV)

This tells us that life does not always have happy endings. Suffering and loss are part and parcel of our human existence, even for people who are devoted to God. All we need to do is trust the Lord our God alone.

Isaiah 51:11

So the ransomed of the LORD shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness; Sorrow and sighing shall flee away

Isaiah 51:11(NKJV)

God reminds his people in tribulation that he is faithful to his promise. The Christian may justly say, “I can trust him in my present condition, and I can trust him for the time to come.” Because the Lord is God, and my God, I can rejoice in tribulation.

Biblical meaning of sunrise

The sunrise is the perfect symbol of God’s intervention in our world. It is the show of God’s love for everyone as the sunrise doesn’t select whose and where to shine

Beautiful sunrise bible verse

Psalm 113:3

Everywhere from east to west praise the name of the LORD

Psalm 113:3(NLT)

The psalmist wrote that we should praise God from the rise of the sun to the setting of the sun – so basically, we are to be praising God from the moment we wake up until the last thought before we go to sleep

Lamentation 3:22-23

22 The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassion never fail.

23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness

Lamentation 3:22-23(NIV)

Just as people live with the certainty that the sun will rise in the morning, believers can trust and know that God’s strong love and faithfulness will greet them again each day and his tender mercies will be renewed every morning.

Psalm 34:5

Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces

Psalm 34:5(NLT)

Those who seek the Lord in prayer are described as “radiant.” The root word in Hebrew is nahar, which indicates cheerfulness; another possible English translation is “beaming.” The same word is found in Isaiah 60:5, used to describe Israel’s joy at seeing her sons and daughters returning to the homeland.

There is no reason to be downcast if we look to the Lord in prayer. In Psalm 42:3 the psalmist describes his depression. He says, “My tears have been my food day and night,” and he describes his soul as “cast down” (Psalm 42:5, 6, 11), but then he decides to talk to God and place his hope in Him. The result is praise instead of pity (Psalm 42:11).

Luke 1:78-79

78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us,
79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace

Luke 1:78-79(KJV)

It was through God’s grace and love that the Light of salvation, which had been promised in the garden of Eden so long ago, was ready to pierce the deep darkness of the world, for it was through the tender mercy of our same gracious God that the Light of His salvation was finally dawning.

2 Samuel 23:4

And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain

2 Samuel 23:4(KJV)

There is an infinite fullness of grace and all blessings treasured up in Christ, for those who seek his salvation.

Morning sunrise bible verse

Matthew 13:43

Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s Kingdom. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand

Matthew 13:43(NLT)

Jesus has given His disciples a detailed explanation of the meaning of the parable of the wheat and the weeds (Matthew 13:36). He is the sower of the field, which is the entire world.

He has sown into His field good wheat seeds, which are the sons of the kingdom of heaven. The devil has come in the night and sown into the field weeds, which represent those who belong to him.

When the harvest comes, Jesus has said, He will send His angels into the world to gather up all those who belong to the evil one, the lawbreakers, and anything that causes sin. They will be thrown into the fiery furnace, hell, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth in agony

Deuteronomy 4:19

When you look to the heavens and see the sun and moon and stars—all the host of heaven—do not be enticed to bow down and worship what the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven

Deuteronomy 4:19(BSB)

Never allow personal achievement, success, and societal status to make you feel you have achieved so much with your knowledge, ideas, intelligence, and influence that God is neglected in your daily life and confession. Everything you have ever and will ever become is made possible by God.

Daniel 12:3

Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever

John 4:36

Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together

John 4:36(ESV)

The physical and emotional payoff of planting crops comes when those returns are finally harvested. This is a time of happiness for everyone involved. And yet, the primary joy is for those who do the reaping: those bringing in the finished goods

Bible verse about sunrise and sunset

Isaiah 60:1

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you

Isaiah 60:1(NIV)

When the Lord tells us to arise, He wants us to get up from the lowly position the enemy has placed us, which is causing us to be depressed and lose hope. All the plans of God for our life is that we never allow situation, pressure and life-threatening issues way us down, that is why He commanded us to arise.

Psalm 118:24

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it

Psalm 84:11

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless

Psalm 84:11(NIV)

This verse is a great reminder that the Lord God provides and cares for us, being our sun and shield. He gives us favor and honor and blesses those who walk with Him. This also serves as a reminder to check our walk.

Psalm 143:8

Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee

Psalm 143:8(KJV)

Remembers that God is trustworthy and that you can put your confidence in Him. We know that God has been faithful and we are able to think about what God has done in the past to know He is able to help in the present trouble as well.
