Maybe We Need A King

I hung up the phone and wanted to do cartwheels all over my office and dance, too. I had been talking with my boss for about ten minutes when he referred to Jesus as King of everything!

The economy has hit us hard here in Arizona, especially in the housing industry. Our office has sold homes consistently nonetheless, so our owner calls often to discuss business. In our conversation this week, he referred to our current white house administration. Then Mr. Boss said this: “I’m thinking that maybe we need a king this next election.” And I said: “Oh, no Boss! What if we don’t like him? We won’t be able to vote him out in four years! The only king I would consider is King Jesus.” Then he said: “Jesus is already king; He’s king of everything!”

Today, I’m thanking God for this conversation. I’m thanking Him that down deep inside, I realize that my boss knows the King of Kings and I can’t express how liberated that makes me feel. We share the same hope!

9-10 Shout and cheer, Daughter Zion!

Raise the roof, Daughter Jerusalem!
Your king is coming!
a good king who makes all things right,
a humble king riding a donkey,
a mere colt of a donkey.
I've had it with war—no more chariots in Ephraim,
no more war horses in Jerusalem,
no more swords and spears, bows and arrows.
He will offer peace to the nations,
a peaceful rule worldwide,
from the four winds to the seven seas.

11-13"And you, because of my blood covenant with you,
I'll release your prisoners from their hopeless cells.
Come home, hope-filled prisoners!
This very day I'm declaring a double bonus—
everything you lost returned twice-over!

Zechariah 9: 9-13
