Prophecy and the Unexpected

Today we honor the fulfillment of Isaiah 53. Christ dying upon the cross for our sins, to redeem us. Despite the prophecy being present, the people of Israel still expected a warrior Messiah came to chase away their oppressors. As Pastor Dave discussed on Sunday, there was disappointment at this path of the Messiah. How often does God work in the way we expected? He chose an outcast to bringHis people out of Egypt. He chose David, a man who was nowhere near perfect to lead his kingdom. He chooses the unexpected person time and time again. Yet time and time again we expect help to come int he expected form. My unexpected help has come in the form of rejection, and changes in plans. But as I have learned this year this is exactly what has occurred and I am now on a path that I know is the realpath. So as we finish this Holy Week, let your plans let in the unexpected, and allow yourself to course to correct through the disappointment.
