REJECTION is one of the most common, inner wounds. It can occur at any stage in life, from the time of conception through adulthood. Rejection is one of the most neglected wounds within a person's soul. It brings a disturbance and a heaviness on a human heart.
An individual wounded inside fears further rejection. He comes under pressure to change who he is in order to find love - and to reject the truth of who God created him to be. This pressure wears him down, and eventually creates abnormalities in his behavior. This is by the design of his enemy. The devil hates love. He is opposed to God, who is Love. He wants to destroy love, for he cannot work in a righteous atmosphere of love. In order to oppose God's love, he creates division, strife and disruption in our hearts. His strategy is to divide the minds of Christians with doubt and fear, and to disintegrate the peace of the Holy Spirit within our soul. Rejection is his weapon of choice.
The perfect love of Jesus casts out fear ( 1 John 4:18 ). The Spirit of the Lord restores our soul, and our confidence in who we truly are. Jesus is working to edify and strengthen us. In this moment, your Savior wants to assure you of how valuable you are to Him and to His Kingdom. He wants you to become stable in His love, and to find a new freedom from the chains of the enemy.
