Yes, I believe God has a sense of humor.
Yep, I think He chuckles. I think God likes laughter! Ecclesiastes 3:4 tells us that there is “a time to weep and a time to laugh.” Just look at the Father’s creation and you must see that He indeed has one!
I thought about an aardvark. They are pretty funny to look at. But God designed them with that long nose and it has a purpose. Stop, now think….there you go, you thought of something didn’t you?
Along with His sense of humor, I have been thinking of some of His others attributes. What will it really be like to see Him? Can we be a part of the “Kingdom of God” right now and get a glimpse?
Most of you have heard of the song I CAN ONLY IMAGINE by MercyMe. It was written by Bart Millard several years ago at the passing of his father.
“I can only imagine, what it will be like, when I walk by your side. I can only imagine what my eyes will see when you face is before me, I can only imagine. Surrounded by your glory, what will my heart feel? Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still? Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall? Will I sing hallelujah or be able to speak at all?”
Oh my, this speaks to our hearts in such a truthful manner. We know what the word says about the God, about Jesus and John even describes heaven in Revelation. But what will it really be like? Can we truly describe or get a taste of His glory?
God is love. Ponder that for a minute. What is love? He loves us more than we can even fathom. I imagine that He chuckles at us, smiles at our wacky behavior. Sometimes I wonder if He shakes His head in disappointment when we miss it? I think of a daddy letting his baby girl dance to the music. He chuckles as she sways back and forth to the beat. Her smiles melts his heart. She stumbles, and he is there to catch her. She cries, he soothes her. She heads for the stove. He has told her “no, do not touch”, but she continues for the burner. She gets burned. Daddy does not run from her. He embraces her as she deals with the consequence of the behavior.
I so often see myself as that little girl. Have you allowed Abba Father to love you? Have you taken the time to be with Him?
Right now at this very moment, stop. Take a few minutes to bask in His love. Ask Him to make His presence knowing to you at this time. Tell Him you love Him. He doesn’t want this to be hidden from us. He loves us. That is one of the biggest motivators I know…love.
And just look up a Blob Fish or an Axolotl….you may never doubt His sense of humor!
Blessings dear ones~
