4 Dec – Come up where the air is clear!

come up wher the air is clear

To ascend is to move or go upward; to mount or rise to a higher point; to come up and see from heaven’s eyes.

Jesus ascended from earth into heaven before his friend’s eyes, and it’s His example to ascend or come to up higher that we can follow. (Luke 24:50-53). God wants us to see from on high, from our heavenly seat; because when we rise above the problems, noise and challenges of our day we will see from God’s perspective, rather than always struggling below and under things.

Up there we are able to soar above, in the frequency and dimensions of heavenly places where the weights and burdens of the world are far less likely to pull us down or cloud our view. We see with heavenly eyes and suddenly things often start to make sense as we see a way through, or gain an understanding and knowledge of what and how God is going about things.

Whatever sort of day you are having, know that Jesus who ascended through the clouds into heaven says, “Come to me; come up here and see what I am doing and saying, and  renew your strength, power and perspective.

Today take a moment, look to Jesus and rise above it all, for “as you dwell up there where the air is clear, where the light is bright and there’s no more fear, you’ll know your place, you’ll know your name, you’ll know God’s called you to do great things.”  (From the song “Take a Moment” – United Pursuit)

“For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 2:6)

“He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly. Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary”. (Isaiah 40:30-31)

Prayer: Lord I’m choosing to rise up above any of the struggles or challenges of my day, and to see and gain perspective from where you are Jesus. I’m going up to the high places, so I can enjoy my heavenly view. In Jesus name Amen.
