HEARTS WOUNDED BY REJECTION


rejection

Mark 12:30-31, And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

WHAT IS REJECTION?  It is when someone makes you feel like you are worthless, unimportant, and they treat you like you are a waste of their time.

Rejection begins as a seed!  Everything that begins in our lives comes as a SEED.

Satan wants that seed to get deep enough that it will start growing roots that reach deep and wide in our lives.

Some have been rejected by your moms or dads, family, friends, spouses, children, job, church (abandonment, cruel words, abuse, deaths, divorce, unfaithfulness, comparisons).  Some even feel that God rejected them because they did not get a prayer answered.

Whatever seed takes root, that is the fruit the tree will produce.

If the seed is rejection, and it takes root, then the tree will produce, “I am not worth it,” “I am not important,” “I am not valuable” thoughts. These thoughts produce the desire to be FAKE so that you are accepted by others.

When you reject yourself because someone else has said you are not valuable, the fruit from the tree will be a bad attitude, anger, bitterness, depression, negativity, judgmentalism, controlling spirit, harshness, no-confidence, rebellion, distrust, escapism, medicating themselves…..

THE SEEDS THAT GROW INTO ROOTS OF REJECTION ARE EVIDENT IN OUR RELATIONSHIPS.

We go into PROTECTIVE MODE so nobody can hurt us again.

MAYBE YOU HAVE SAID THESE STATEMENTS.  IF YOU HAVE, YOU ARE IN PROTECTIVE MODE BECAUSE OF A WOUND.

I’ll never let anyone do this to me again!

They won’t hurt me because I don’t care!

You strike out to hurt before being hurt!

You buy things, or collect animals because they don’t judge or reject you!

Perfectionism. Nobody can meet my expectations.  Isolation.

Manipulation of people & environments!

Medicate through drugs, alcohol, sex….

You always run when you see rejection might happen!

Refusal to become VULNERABLE!

YOU DESERVE TO BE HEALED!  YOU DESERVE TO BE WHOLE!  JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR HEALING!

YOU’RE NOT POPULAR ANYMORE!


tolerance

PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU WHEN YOU ARE LIKE THEM AND STAND FOR NOTHING!

We all want to be popular and accepted by the people around us, but that ends quickly for most when they take a different stand than what is popular.  

This is a new experience for most Christians in America and the simple fact is….it will be escalating.

Most American Christians live the same type of lifestyle the world does, so the world accepts and embraces them, but there is a great divide when you give your life to Christ.  As Princes & Princesses we are no longer of this world, we are not the same, we do not live like the world.

THIS GENERATION WILL REJECT AND HAVE HATRED TOWARD YOU!

THIS IS NORMAL not ABNORMAL!

John 15:20a, Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.

2 Tim. 3:12, Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

WHEN YOU FINALLY TAKE A STAND FOR THE WORD AND YOUR SAVIOR, YOU WILL BE PERSECUTED!

The world declares TOLERANCE, but they are only TOLERANT with the Christian as long as they do what they want and agree with.

A BELIEVER WILL NOT AGREE ON MORAL ISSUES THE SAME AS AN UNBELIEVER.  THEY HAVE DIFFERENT MASTERS.  

The unsaved obey their king and live his moral values – Eph. 2:2-3.

The SAVED now obey their King, and His name is Jesus!  

JESUS SAID IT BEST!

Matt. 10:34, Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

THIS IS A RARE OCCASION IN AMERICA THAT CHRISTIANS HAVE TO TAKE A STAND WITH THE WORD AGAINST THE WORLD’S SYSTEM.  THIS CAUSES ANGER, HATRED, PERSECUTION SIMPLY IN THE NAME OF TOLERANCE.

STAND SAINT, STAND!

How Do I Know If I Have FORGIVEN THEM?


 

thumb

Mat 6:14  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

WE HAVE ALL BEEN HURT TO THE PLACE WHERE EVERY SINGLE TIME WE SEE THAT PERSON THE PAIN OR ANGER OF THE OFFENSE BUBBLES UP IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS.

Here is a KEY…

If that is true then the process of FORGIVENESS is not over.

If when you see that individual your bitterness gurgles, then FORGIVENESS is not complete.

WHEN I WAS IN 4TH OR 5TH GRADE, I decided to whittle with my dad’s utility knife.  I grabbed a stick and started creating some design in that piece of wood.  I turned the wood around and couldn’t reach where the knife needed to carve next so I whittled toward my body instead of away. WELL….. That did not work out too good for me as the blade slipped and cut my thumb right down to the bone (literally I could open up the cut and see it all).  I went to the hospital and got 3 stitches.  When the stitches were to come out my dad took them out instead of the Doctor.  That night I played basketball and turned and hit a kid with my thumb.  Where the stitches had just been removed TORE!  Blood erupted everywhere!!  

I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT EXPERIENCE!  IT WAS HORRIBLE, AND A TON OF BLOOD!

BUT

As I look at my thumb I see the scar, but it does not hurt any longer.  YOU KNOW YOU HAVE FORGIVEN AND ARE HEALED WHEN YOU IT DOES NOT HURT OR STIR ANGER ANY LONGER.  You will never forget the event, the wound, the offense, the hurt, BUT, when you are FREE it will not stir those same emotions.

FORGIVE, AND YOU WILL BE FREE!

UNFORGIVENESS ALLOWS THAT PERSON TO OWN YOU AND CAUSE YOU PAIN DECADES AFTER THE EVENT.

CHOOSE FREEDOM IN JESUS – FORGIVE THEM LIKE JESUS FORGAVE YOU!!
