But we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.
Luke 24:21 – NIV
Have you ever had your hopes dashed I believe we all have, it’s mainly because I believe we’re expecting something Jesus has not promised. The disciples were much like us looking at Jesus for one thing while not fully understanding the whole purpose. Jesus did come to rescue them but not through physical means but through spiritual means. When we get our minds set on how this or that should work it’s hard to see our true purpose that’s why it’s so important to pray and stay in the Word of God because He will also take us through the scriptures and show us it’s true meaning.
He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”
Luke 24:25-26 – NIV
Dashed hopes can be cured through His word every time so that we’ll have the strength to keep following Jesus Hallelujah
I truly Thank Him for His patience and long suffering with us!
