Does God Have a Sense of Humor?

Does God Have a Sense of Humor?

By Ron G Anselm

I think with some of the people I have met over the years I would say that Yes, God definitely has a sense of humor. With the way some of those people and even some of the people I work with and meet today are and how they act God has to have a sense of humor.

I`m not really just talking about how God has created some of his children which the Bible states he has created us in his image but how some people including myself many times wonder why, when we are trying to get something we want, a job, move to a new area and so on and we pray about it thinking that we are going to get it just like maybe your kids may think when they ask for something that Mom and Dad will definitely give it to them it doesn`t happen and leaves us discouraged and even disappointed.

I have had a ton of these things happen in my life just like a lot of you probably have and we all continue to experience these types of scenarios but from the human side when we think like this we are thinking in terms of how a human being rather than a divine being would think.

Remember, God gave us his only son for our sake so when it comes to surprises that our God is a God of many surprises. Many of us are so sure or think we are sure of how God is going to respond to us that many of us are really surprised when God does something different and responds in a different way to what we were originally asking for in the first place.

Many people tend to forget that God is the master of our lives if we let him and has a master plan for each and every one of our lives. He is in control. God knew and wrote the book on our live long before we were born and he knows our lives better than we do.

Despite what we human may think is best for us God really does know better what`s best for us. Many people have asked for something they were sure to get including myself only ending up to not get it at that particular time but say years down the line saying, Now it makes sense. I see why God didn`t give me what I originally asked for because if he had I wouldn`t be in this better situation I am currently in. "

If you are with God then you know he is constantly working in our lives preparing us for the future and giving us what is best for us. When I was going through the many trials I have experienced in my life and I was on my last leg I would pray and pray a lot. I have had many unexplainable things for the better happen to me when I prayed and going through these trying times also brought me closer to God. God may take us through trying times only to help us grow stronger and bring us closer to him. He does it because he loves us so much and loves us with an unconditional love. Just like you and I love our kids, we are all God`s children and he loves us dearly.

So, when people ask, "Does God have a sense of humor?" Yes, he does. He created us in his image and when we rejoice he rejoices right along with us. When we celebrate, he celebrates right along with us, when we are wallowing in happiness; he is right by our side as happy as we are. And when we are going through tough and trying times he is right there with us holding us in the palm of his hand and leading the way.

So, just remember that God has a plan for each and every one of us and sometimes those plans are not always what we expect. When we all realize the greatness of God and his level of his love for us then he can rejoice and laugh right along with us as we celebrate his goodness and greatness.
