Christ’s Ascension

“Open the eyes of my heart, O Lord!”

Quoted in: Ephesians 4:8-9

You ascended on high, leading a host of captives in your train and receiving gifts among men, even among the rebellious, that the LORD God may dwell there.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Selah
Our God is a God of salvation, and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death. But God will strike the heads of his enemies, the hairy crown of him who walks in his guilty ways. The Lord said, “I will bring them back from Bashan, I will bring them back from the depths of the sea, that you may strike your feet in their blood, that the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from the foe.” Psalm 68:18-23 ESV

This Psalm reveals Christ as having ascended back into heaven after His resurrection in verse 18. This verse also tells us Jesus has endowed every believer with spiritual gifts.
Do you think of God as the One “who daily bears us up”?


What has God revealed to you?
