This life and the set of circumstances that you are going through are not where your life truly abides. Jesus is more than a name. He is precious to you. You have surrendered your life to Him. You belong to Him. He is in your life and His presence is greater than the one outside of you. God gave you a new foundation of life and that is the exalted, victoriously ascended Christ.
So, ‘Be joyful in hope’, Romans 12: 12
On Ascension Sunday today we think of the disciples looking to the skies and seeing the Lord ascended they were filled with this joyful hope as they received this message: “‘Men of Galilee,’ they said, ‘why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.’” Acts 1:11
So today let us all put our eyes on Jesus and not the circumstances outside or inside of us. We will see Him!
