Rejection by man is not the end


as long as it comes from man and not God you will be alright


     One of the most horrible and self esteem lowering elements we as people sometimes have to face is that of REJECTION! Ouch that hurts, to be rejected can have utterly devastating effects upon an individual, so much that the prescription remedy was therapy and others could not stand the weight of rejection which tragically took them to a non return point of suicide, that is the type of impact rejection can have on a person.

     What is rejection? Rejection is one or something being dismissed as inadequate or faulty. rejection can also be a refusal to consider or agree with the thought processes or someone’s opinion other than yours. On a personal perspective one who fails to show due affection or concern for you. When looked at medically, the body will sometimes reject a transplanted organ due to the immune response that has been damaged.

     Rejection is painful, for no one wants to be rejected, no one says when they grow up or get up in the morning ‘reject me’! Rejection can wreak havoc on ones self esteem, in other words one’s opinion of themself, can fall drastically when their sense of self worth have taken a nose dive due to rejection. However, if you have been rejected, does not mean it is the end of the world, for you can get through and over the impact of rejection. You ask how, the how is through our Counselor and Mighty God! Allow me to interject at this point there was and is one who was despised, familiar with deep grief, had many backs turned on Him, for some felt He deserved it, but He did not He was pierced for our disobedience and rebellion, and Him being beaten is what enables us to be healed and made complete. Reference read Isaiah 53:1-6

     We as people are like sheep, and we have been drawn away by own lusts and desires of the flesh and once drawn away our deeds become full blown Sin, and Sin Reaps Death. This death is a separation and a rejection by God, wherein you will not enter into the place He has prepared for those who love Him, and have waited for His appearance. For if you truly love the Lord you will not be ashamed of or seek to pull back, but have confidence when He appears Ref. James 1:14; 1st John 2:28 When we are drawn away by the flesh we will suffer the ultimate rejection from Jesus Christ, and His rejection will sound something like this, "Depart from you worker of iniquity, I do not know you" Ref. Luke 13:27

       I can be rejected by anybody and it may hurt me mentally and emotionally real bad, but I will get over it in time, and maybe in time the one who has wounded me, we befriend each other with true forgiveness and we moved on. God will also encourage the rejected as He encouraged Samuel when the people spoke against him, and he felt rejected, and God let Samuel know it was not him they were rejecting, but Me. Ref. 1st Samuel 8:7... However, this is a strong but; if you are rejected by God, there is not coming back from that rejection.

     Rejection is a part of life, and at some point we all will be rejected for something, credit rejection, friendship rejection, love rejection, but remember this, the Lord did not reject the notion of suffering for us, so that we would not have to be rejected by Him! He suffered rejection because He was the only one who could. Rejection is going to come if you live long enough, just make sure the rejection of you does not come from God.
