Today’s world seems upside down and backwards. Political parties always say that they know what’s best for us. Conflicting ideas charge to the front and demand attention in an attempt to change the status quo. Many days we awaken to a thought of just who is in charge of this world. There must be someone in charge but frankly we just can’t seem to settle on who the boss is.
We go to our daily jobs and discover that businesses are conflicted. After all, good work ain’t cheap and cheap work ain’t good.
Employees are always demanding more than the job can give. More pay, less hours, better working conditions, free insurance, a pension, expanded vacations, more time off, and a plethora of other requests act as a plague for the employer.
Everyone needs a boss but just who is in charge? If God is the boss let’s see what He brings to the table.
God says that He will supply our every need, that He will answer every prayer, and that He will feed us both physically and spiritually. Indeed He commanded us to pray for our daily bread. For forty years He fed and clothed the Exodus crowd as they traveled in the desert. Peace, hope, joy, and a mansion have been promised.
Perhaps we should accept that God owns it all and if He is the boss he can supply a miracle when asked.
Are miracles a part of our life or are we just waiting for the end?
