Who's The Boss?

"He changes the times and the seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning" (Dan.2:21).

Do you remember the TV show, Who's The Boss?" It had quite a long run (1984-92) for a sitcom and was about a man and his daughter who became the housekeeper for a successful woman and her son. The title came from the role reversal of a man being the housekeeper and the woman being the breadwinner, even though they weren't romantically involved... It was a cute concept that kept the show going for nine years. When it comes to out spiritual lives, there is never a doubt as to Who's The Boss... God was in control at the time of Daniel as we read in today's verse. He handed the reins over to Jesus after the resurrection... "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me" (Matt.28:18). About 25 years later when the apostle Paul was writing, He was still the boss, as he wrote to the Ephesians about who was in charge: "That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right side in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion and every title that can be given" (1:20-21). I left off the last part of verse 21 on purpose... "not only in the present age, but also in the one to come." Jesus is still in charge! Peter echoed this in his writing about Jesus.... "who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand ----- with angels, authorities, and powers in submission to Him" (1 Pet.3:22). There can be no doubt.. God and His Son are in charge and we are in their capable hands. We may not know the future, but we do know who holds the future! There is never even a thought about any role reversal here. We can take comfort and courage in the fact that our sovereign is at work. We know just Who The Boss is. Something about our citizenship tomorrow...

Have a great beginning to your week... Start it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
