Then the LORD said, “As my servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot
for three years as a sign and a portent against Egypt and Cush, Isaiah 20:3
3 years?? Holy Smokes!
Must have been pretty important!
and what's the word portent even mean?
and where is Cush?
what were people doing that they needed a sign?
Isaiah was seriously naked for 3 years??
oh my goodness i wonder so much about our friend in this little verse.
what if it was a cold day?
did people giggle as he walked by?
was he actually totally naked?
did Isaiah question God when he heard "take your clothes off and don't put them back on for 3 years?"
ohhh so many questions.
I'm planning on finding out all i can about this incident and what we can praise God for.. cuz you know God asks some pretty weird things of his followers sometimes.. but he totally has us covered.. literally!
stick around, we can learn together!
have a blessed weekend my sweet readers. Know that God loves you so very very much even if he apparently asks you to do silly and incomprehensible things sometimes!!! it's ALL worth it!!! I promise!
