No one rightly perceived my purpose when Jesus came to earth. They had a vision in there mind of what a messiah should look like, come from, and act like. Jesus was none of those.
People wanted a messiah that would put down Roman oppression. The disciples constantly misinterpreted His intentions. They were crushed when He was crucified. Most thought He would save Himself. He never did. When He rose from the dead they thought, well now something will happen, but He left again. They waited at the upper room. The move of the Holy Spirit on them was totally unexpected.
My next movement will be totally unexpected. Like in that day ...It will be nothing you have imagined so far.
I am moved in my spirit that this word is for many of us who are seeing what has been pass away. Will we look to Him as our comforter through this process of death so He can bring us to new life. In hanging on too long to what is passing away can cause yourself undue pain. Are we willing to focus our attention and affections on Him instead of the grief of the death of our vision.
For some it may be a personal expectation. This may be an expectation of a relationship or a future that has kept you going. The Lord is turning you from that to just Him. It would serve us to remember In His great love, He is Jealous for us.
We never in our best efforts have ever loved someone like He loves us.
