The pain of rejection is probably one of the worst kinds of pain. We’ve all experienced it – a nagging pain that makes you feel like you’ve been punched right in the stomach.
But I have good news. Jesus understands!
Look at this:
Isaiah 53:3 says,
He was despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and pain and acquainted with grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Knowing that Jesus understands what you’re going through when feeling rejected makes all the difference. It reminds you that you can run to Him anytime and receive His total acceptance.
I love how we always have a choice in life to either focus on and believe the negative (what others may be saying) or believe the positive (what God has already said in His Word).
Here’s the truth!
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to His dear Son. 7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins. 8 He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. (NLT)
Because of this Biblical truth, you can go ahead and have a wonderful week living accepted in Christ regardless of who chooses to reject you in the natural.
Thanks to Jesus, we can live ABOVE rejection!
