As the movie progressed, Neo, the main character, was believed to be The One and was brought to see the Oracle to get advice on what he should do. She explained to Neo that he was not the one that everyone was searching for. This simple advice led him to believe that he was not the savior everyone was looking for. The realization that he was not The One allowed him to place himself at risk. But, this risk brought him down a path which eventually showed him that he really was the One. The Oracle told Him what He needed to hear so that Neo would do He needed to do. She told him what he needed to hear so that he could eventually become The One in mind as well as action.
In some ways, God is kind-of like the Oracle of the Matrix. He may lead us down a path that we don’t expect so that we end up in His plan rather than our own. We may be diverted in an unexpected direction.
