It’s kind of like on the old TV show Maude, when Maude would turn to her husband and say "God’ll get you for that, Walter." Will God make something terrible happen to Walter because his wife said it will? As St. Paul says on two separate occasions (1 Cor. 2:16, Rom. 11:34), "who has known the Mind of God?" Maybe God is getting Maude for something she said, through what Walter has said or done.
