The Lord’s humor can show up in the most unlikely places. Too often, we forget God’s role as a Father in our life. He placed us in His family. And like our own families, we have unique relationships, jokes, and traditions that define our family dynamic.
Prophetic deliverance pastor Jenna Winston experiences God’s humor through something she loves–sneakers. This may sound superficial or silly, but God cares about the things we care about! On her instagram post, while holding a new pair of sneakers, Jenna wrote “Never once when God has asked me to wear a new pair of shoes because I’m stepping into something did something not absolutely epic happen!” She often shares when God speaks to her about wearing a new pair of shoes, often signifying a transition in her life or the “stepping into” of a new season or opportunity.
God Loves to Surprise His Children
“Do not be grieved, the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10)
Like Jenna, God is eager to surprise you in unique ways. Are you on the lookout for the Lord in every area of your life, even those which don’t seem the most important? Because He is good, and wants to pursue your heart, God can and will give you moments of joy with Him even in the little things that you care about.
Experience the Joy of God’s Humor and Relationship
Our maybe small expectations of God showing up in our life cannot quench His passionate pursuit of us. God cares deeply about wooing your heart. He won’t always show up in the ways you anticipate. I encourage you to get curious and expectant for the Lord’s unlikely movement in your life today! There is no limit to Father’s gifts in our lives.
