Rejection is one of the major human emotions that bite and wound God’s people. It’s common nowadays to feel rejected in church than any other place. Whoever wants to chase you, sometimes s/he will never tell you go, but the signs of rejection can easily be read in bold on the wall for all to see.         It’s true you don’t need to be told off, but the behavior and conduct of people just drive you towards the door. The writing is always on the wall-and you’re almost certain at you are no-longer needed. At that moment, you feel dejected, powerless and worthy nothing. The devil starts whispering to you, who do you think you are? He continues to whisper,” you are worthy nothing, nothing good can come from you again!
Nowadays, it seems that almost everybody is affected by rejection to some degree. Research says that majority of the people who have attempted suicide to harm themselves are products of rejection. You’ll never know how hurting rejection can be, until a husband or wife, mother or daughter, son or father, or even employee or employer pulls you down with words that destabilize you. Your brain stops to function. You try to think it’s a dream but oh, it’s the reality playing infront of you. Rejection attacks the very person that we are. It destroys our self-esteem, and attacks who we are and our purpose in life. A once vibrant man turns face down because of rejection. Tears are the daily products of many, because of rejection. This is why it is one of the most common tools the devil will use to destroy a person’s life.

A denial or refusal to be accepted-be it love relations, business, or a plan, is very disappointing embarrassment. It may be heart-breaking or may even hurt your ego. But you should never take a rejection to your heart and feel discouraged.Beloved, life is a series of wins and failures, similarly learn your mistakes from every rejection you face and move forward with an improved version of yourself. Though you might feel frustrated at times, never let these denials come in your way of progress.

It’s sweet to note that God never wanted us to feel rejected or abandoned. He desires for you to know who you really are, and realize how deeply he loves, accepts, and appreciates you, so that you can live out the fullness of what all God has ordained you to be. God’s Word tells us that without being rooted and grounded in the love (and acceptance) of God, we cannot experience the fullness of God in our lives: Friends, if that is what you feel, remember the Lord faced the same. Mark 12:10-11 says “Haven’t you read this passage of Scripture: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this and it is marvelous in our eyes. The bible also says in 1 Peter 2:4 “As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame. ”Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.
Let any fear of rejection drive you closer to the Lord more. He is our hope and rock. He is a stone that was rejected but now is a precious cornerstone. His grace is sufficient in every situation. Have a blessed day
