As I laid in the bathtub tonight (taking a gloriously long hot soak for the first time in months) looking up at the shower head I thought how funny it would be if the shower just turned on a started spraying me and my book down.
If that happened I would have shrieked then laughed and asked God to quit playing around.
Then it hit me.
What if God really did do stuff like that?
I mean, He can. But what if He did go all Herbie-Fully-Loaded on us and played practical jokes as a way to get us to notice and spend time with Him?
Maybe then we would start realizing He is ever-present and always at work around us.
I’d certainly laugh more.
But God, in all His sovereignty, waits for us to come to Him. He never begs, just patiently waits to have mercy on us (Isaiah 30:18).
Still. I like to imagine God playing practical jokes on us. But then again, maybe He does and I just don’t realize it.
Just a thought.
