Rejected But Blessed
It does not make a difference how strong a person may be, rejection is not easy for anyone to take. The feeling of rejection can leave someone to a place of never trying anything again. Rejection from a job, a school, a loan, or anything is hard to take, but we should never allow rejection to be the final say over our lives. Just because we faced rejection in one area does not mean that we will have rejection in all areas of our lives. There are times when the rejection that we faced in one place, only helps us to become stronger for the next things we are going to have to face in our lives.
The Scripture reminds us that, the stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. I encourage you today to remember that Jesus was rejected and He became the chief cornerstone. Do not allow someone’s opinion of you to keep you for achieving all that The Lord has planned for your life. The very thing that you have been rejected from could very well be the catalyst for your next blessing. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team, but he did not let that rejection stop him from becoming one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
When rejection comes your way, do not allow it to stop you, but get back up and do what God has called you to do, and God will catapult you to greatness in Him. I am grateful for some rejections that I have had in my life, and those have led me to trust God more than ever.
Since I know that what God has for me is for me I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord do not allow the world’s rejections to stop me for seeking all of your blessings for my life. In Jesus Name Amen.
