The root of all rejection is misplaced identity. God wants to take your rejection and turn it into redirection. Trusting in God protects us.
Proverbs 29:25 NKJV “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
Learning to handle rejection gives us an unmeasurable amount of peace. Peacemakers love those who reject them and make an effort to reconcile.
Matthew 5:9 NKJV
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
People who reject you are actually rejecting the Prince of Peace not you. The key to overcoming rejection is to solve your own identity problem. Don’t allow rejection to hurt you let it help you by learning to define and redefine who you really are in Christ.
Do you feel rejected? Do you really know who you are in Christ? Did you experience a conviction, challenge or a commitment you need to make from this devotion?
