“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
Galatians 5:1 NIV
Be Free…. don’t allow anyone or anything to hinder the plans God has for you. Not everyone will understand His plan for your life and you have to be ok with that. I remind myself daily that it’s ok not everyone gets it and their not suppose to.
To I shared with our congregation about rejection. This Judas spirit is strong amongst the people. This spirit will lie to you keeping you captive in a place that holds back the spirit of the Lord from operating in you.
I can’t do it, I’m not prepared, I’m not qualified… let me say Heaven has endorsed you!! You don’t need validation from anyone. You have it from your Abba Father.
“The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “ Abba, Father.””
Romans 8:15 NIV
Man’s Rejection is God’s Protection
Keep this in mind…
•Have a vision and don’t let anything or anyone deter you from following it. Take Courage. Put full steam into the next best opportunity you are working on.
•Keep a positive mental attitude. Pick up the pieces and dust yourself off. Don’t let rejection cripple you. Let it motivate you. If you focus on positive thinking, even the harshest defeat is only a stepping stone.
•Don’t take it personally. Rejection is not a measure of your self–worth. When somebody rejects you, sometimes they are acting on their own insecurities and fears.
•Avoid over thinking the rejection. Don’t torture yourself repeatedly, reliving the moments of humiliation and thinking what you could have done to counteract it. If you keep picking at a scab, the wound would keep bleeding and you will never heal.
•Don’t feel sorry for yourself and slump into an attitude of self-pity. When we get rejected we trap ourselves in a moment of doubt and distress. Focus on professional and personal (spiritual, emotional, mental, physical) development.
“Rejection doesn’t mean that you aren’t good enough; it just means the other person failed to realize what you have to offer.”
