Rejection is being pushed away or denied
Let’s be real most of my life this is one thing I’ve struggled with in friendships, relationships, familial, and socially throughout life.
I’ve been rejected by guys all my life… even when I was in a relationship …so that makes it so much easier for me to be single. When I was younger the guys that rejected me were because I wasn’t light enough, too thin, or not pretty enough. In high school, I wasn’t wild enough or thick enough. As an adult, it would be said “what do you have to offer.” That my physical body isn’t good enough or I’m not light enough, too strong, or too guarded. Like bruh what is it? Therefore, in the relationship area it’s easy for me to be single and abstinent. Don’t let me tell the guy I’m abstinent— that’s a whole story by itself.
In friendships… I’m either “too weird” or don’t fit “the crowd”… I’m “too deep” or “too sensitive”. This caused me to learn more about me learning …that I’m an empathy and that’s my sensitivity and that I’m too deep because it means I take time to analyze a situation instead of just being surface all the time. Me being weird because is because I’m a child of Christ an introvert and I think differently…I love the arts and I don’t dress like the culture expects me to.
Family, this is the origin of my rejection. Family rejection can have you bound and enslaved because these are the people you know from the beginning and they shape your views and perception of life and others… so rejection is tough when coming from family. They reject you when you don’t do what they expect of you and can’t control you because you are chosen. You know you’re different and there’s another way God is taken you but there are few that understand even if the few aren’t your family. When you fall and need a family that rejects you, they tell you how “not enough you are” and throw what they call “failure” in your face while praising themselves in your weakness.
Yoooo… rejection is something and can even produce; loneliness, fear of rejection, and fear of failure, which creates procrastination because you believe you aren’t equipped or good enough.
I know God chose me because every time… through every rejection, he’s there to comfort me and covers me.
I am not playing victim like… I’ve been great or like I’ve never rejected anyone, but this is real and something people need to deal with.
Rejection makes you feel like you aren’t enough… like what you have to offer is flawed.
Its clear rejection is inevitable but when it’s always apparent in one’s life it can become a stronghold. Rejection can cause voids that we may not be aware of… it could be anything… sex… suicidal thoughts… mutilated your body… drugs alcohol… until you deal with the root or cast down the thoughts it will continue to resurface and try to overtake you.
The enemy is a trickster, and his voice appears like yours.
If you are rejected and that is something you dealt with all your life… meaning the prominent thing, and every time you are rejected you talk to yourself or listen to the voice in your head that says you aren’t good enough… instead of taking hold of it and saying you are what God says you are and repeating those things that are positive… you can fall into the trap of those negative thoughts… which allows you to be entangled into a web that is harder to get out of. The root of rejection is deception because the enemy wants you to believe that is part of your identity and by being ok with it and accepting the lies of the enemy, you’ll always feel rejected. Rejection not only comes alone but it comes with addictions… cutting your body… jealousy… anxiety…. depression. etc.
Rejection is only one stronghold but a stronghold that most people deal with.
Rejection can be a beast if you believe the lies attached to it. The truth is what God’s word says about you…which is… I’m fearfully and wonderfully made… I am more than a conqueror. I am the head and not the tail I am above and not beneath.
Heavenly father I asked that everyone who is feeling rejected… you help them to know their true identity and what your word says about them at the very foundation. Help us to know that your words are true and give us the strength and wisdom to recognize anything that goes against our identity in you … so that we are able to cast down every vain imagination that exalts itself against the mind of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5)… allow them to let you be the Ruler of their souls so that holy spirit can fully manifest in them…. and Lord I pray for unbelievers that they come to know you and learn who you are… Lord you bore our sins and you died for us so that we may reign with you so that we may have love and life abundantly… life isn’t for when we die but for this life too here on earth…we thank you, father, that we can approach the throne boldly… you are so awesome and incredible thank you, Lord. I pray that the root of rejection is pulled up now and that you fill this void with your perfect love and that the individuals accept your perfect love and fruit of the spirit. I love you for never leaving us and always loving us not under conditions but unconditionally. Let your glory shine through us Lord and change our minds to walk in confidence and assurance… in you which eliminates us being bound to what the enemy says about us or what our circumstances say or has been said about us in Jesus’ name, we thank you, father, amen.
I leave you with this remember that the chief cornerstone was rejected. Matthew 21:42-44
I Love you
