Rejection

Satan wants us to reject ourselves.

He wants us to act as if we are reject-able.

Unloved.

When we act accordingly, we fulfill that prophecy.

Ultimately rejected.

Not because of us, but because of how we act.

As parents, we must look past rejection and continue to love.

As spouses, we must continue to love, seeking to validate the other person fully.

Completely and fully loved.

Secure.

As members of our great nation, we simply must defer, bringing life to others.

Unless of course you find yourself in a riot and then for God’s sake, defend yourself to the bitter end.

Jesus spoke words that were unusual.

Controversial.

Reject-able in His time.

But he didn’t become that.

His words didn’t make Him reject-able.

So why would you?

Why would you allow yourself to become reject-able?

Because you succumb to the temptation of self.

Of unloving.

Stop.

Recognize Satan’s goal.

His goal of you ultimately rejecting yourself.

And say no.

God will never ask you to reject yourself.

He is on your side, fighting for you.

Pulling for you to be full of His life instead.

In John 10:10 Jesus says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Rejection comes in as a thief to steal, kill, and destroy you.

Jesus will bring you life.

Abundant life.

Allow Him to free you, letting His peace, which passes all understanding, guard your heart and mind.

The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:14
