S. O. A. P
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
Then I made love to the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. And The Lord said to me, name him Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.
Where we seem to have inhibitions, God has no inhibitions. He had one of His prophets, Hosea, marry a prostitute to get Israel’s attention. And now dear Isaiah, who later in chapter 20 runs naked through the streets (at God’s command) prophesying, is talking about his conjugal relationship with his wife. “You Gotta Be Kiddin?” NO. The point was that a son, who would be a sign to Israel, would be born to the prophet and his wife. The boy’s name meant “Hasten to the Spoils.” God told Isaiah that before the boy could say the word DaDa, the Assyrian King would plunder their territory. All of this was set up in verses one and two.
Thank you that You have a plan and a purpose for each and everyone of us before we are ever conceived. Amen
