Allah also talks about this energy we have. He talks about the day and night in Surah Nahl:

Faalikul Isbaah – Allah describes this as the sunrise that is totally removing the darkness – when you see the sun rays coming out, all of the darkness just leaves, as if the night was split asunder with a ray of sunlight.
