“However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I WILL NEVER REJECT THEM” [John 6:37 NLT].
In my last post I said rejection is the feeling that: you’re not loved or accepted; you don’t belong to; you’re not included by those in whose association you desire to be. It’s the feeling that you’re not good enough. It’s a sinking feeling that everyone is better than you. It’s just a NEGATIVE FEELING – EMOTION.
I also said that one of the problems with rejection is that it’ll always lead to low self esteem. It blinds its victims from seeing their worth. Satan uses rejection, as he has always done, to move many people away from the plan of God.
Another important thing I said is that the human race is caught in the trap of showing a tendency of the fear of being rejected; and because of this fear of being rejected, even though you’re ready to do something, go somewhere, or talk to somebody, you can’t, rather you send somebody else ahead to talk about you first, before you come. It’s simply a fight that goes on within you because of the fear of being rejected. The fear to hear NO! What this means is that we’re surrounded everyday by the potential of rejection.
My dear friend, I want you to know that there’s divine provision for complete victory over rejection; and that’s the focus of today’s post. This victory is made available in Christ Jesus; and it’s for everybody who belongs to the depraved human race. In order to overcome rejection, there are three things you need to know and do.
- Get Born Again
That’s where the victory begins. After being born again, you need to walk with the consciousness that, according to 2 Corinthians 5:17, you’re a new creature, old things are passed away, behold everything has become new. To be born again simply means to accept Jesus into your life as Lord and Saviour. It’s a supernatural experience that makes you fit spiritually to be indwelt by the Holy Spirit. This you do by repenting and confessing your sins to God. John tells us that “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us” [1 John 1:8-10].
- Review Your Associations
Associate with people who will take you for what you’re not because of what you pretend to be. Try as much as you can not to be an impostor; be yourself. I want you to know that God wants you to be the best of what you can be of Him. To be accepted by God guarantees that He’ll bring the right people around you; people who will be ready to accept you without necessarily constraining you to compromise your core values. Beloved, my recommendation is this: “Don’t allow your life to be ruled by rejected”.
- Refuse to Be Intimidated by a Negative Answer
“No” shouldn’t intimidate you, rather it should make you to come better. A “No” doesn’t mean “never”. The fact that Pharaoh told Moses “No” didn’t stop the latter from going to him several times for the same purpose. Beloved, you’re GOD’S BEST; allow this thought to fill your mind, and don’t accommodate any other opinion.
