Expectations of God
The Jews expected the Messiah to be a certain way – a king who would save them from the Romans, I suppose. We, at least most of us, want God to do what we ask – to be a certain way just like the Jews. Our prayers are like a list for Good – heal this, fix that, do this, etc. What we need to do is allow God’s will. We need to be open to God’s will and ask His help to accept it and to know that God loves us and has our best interest at heart. He takes care of the birds and the bees, how much more he cares for us.
