I am not sure I know of anyone who enjoys rejection. I sure don’t, I hate it every time it occurs and I try to avoid it all costs. But one thing we all know is that everyone one of us is going to be rejected, at one time or another. In relationships we may hear something like, “No thank you, why don’t we just be friends!” (Which never happens) In business or a job interview we may hear, “I will get back with you and then you hear nothing from them.”
What are you supposed to do? You must understand that rejection can feel like an attack on our identity. Is our value in who we are or even what we can produce? Our value should be based on who we are in Christ? If you are feeling rejected let me just read Psalm 27, and let the power of Gods word encourage you.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When evildoers assail me, uttering slanders against me, my adversaries and foes, they shall stumble and fall. 3 Though a host encamps against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arises against me, yet I will be confident. 4 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. 5 For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent, he will set me high upon a rock.
And then verse 10
10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will take me up.
Be encouraged that if you have received Jesus, that God will never leave you nor forsake you, no matter what!
