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!

AM I BACKSLIDDEN?


backslider

HOW CAN YOU IDENTIFY IF YOU ARE ON THE SLIPPERY SLOPE OF BACKSLIDING?

What is backsliding?

It is when you begin the slow descent AWAY from the relationship with Jesus that you once had with passion.

“I still love the Lord, but I am just not feeling it the way I used to.”

“I love God but I just do not have time for church, the Bible, or prayer.”

HERE ARE THE PRINCIPLES OF DESCENT WHEN IT COMES TO BACKSLIDING.  IF YOU ARE IN THIS SPIRAL THEN CATCH YOURSELF AND REPENT, AND RETURN TO YOUR FIRST WORKS (Rev. 2:4-5, Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.)

Discouragement – When it seems you are being attacked on every side and there is no way out, even though your circumstances have not really changed, you are probably entering the first level of the attack of witchcraft.

 

ConfusionAn increasing state of confusion, again for apparently no reason. At this level we begin to lose the clarity of God’s call on our life, which begins to weaken our desire to stand. This compounds the Discouragement and prepares us for the next level:

 

DepressionAt this level our spiritual disciplines begin to slip and we fall further into the pit of discouragement and confusion. This is very prevalent in the church. This leads very quickly to:

 

Loss of Vision At this level we begin to doubt if God has even called us at all! This is the goal of the previous attacks, and leads us to spiritually wandering in circles when we really need to be on the straight and narrow.

 

Incapacitation The previous attacks lead us to a place when we no longer hear from the Lord. The scriptures no longer speak to us and anointed messages just seem dead.

 

Withdrawal At this level we withdraw not only from our call, but also from the church, friends, and even family members.

 

Hopelessness As we withdraw from God and those closest to us this leads quickly to hopelessness. We are now a loner from the pack and can easily be targeted and taken out. This always leads to:

 

DEFEAT!

YOU HAVE NOT BEEN CREATED FOR DEFEAT!!  GET IN VICTORY BY REESTABLISHING YOUR PASSION FOR JESUS!

TROUBLES, TRIALS, HARDSHIPS, WOUNDS, DISAPPOINTMENTS!


Hard times

TROUBLES, TRIALS, HARDSHIPS, WOUNDS, DISAPPOINTMENTS…..

The list goes on with things that happen in our lives that bring us to the crossroads.

When these things occur, not if, but when….WHAT DO WE CHOOSE?

There are only two choices:
1.) Lay down, give up and go into depression, allowing the situation to destroy you.
2.) Get up, and FIGHT, and do not allow the situation to destroy you.

The decision is determined by our choice.
The decision is determined by our sight.
The decision is determined by our attitude.

If you have made the decision to give up, then life gets really slow and will torment you. Fear will surround you, torment will grip your heart constantly. You will be owned, and entrapped, imprisoned by your own emotions and life. Each morning will not be rejoicing, but waiting for the next trouble to come. YOUR EYES LOOK FOR TROUBLE, AND THEY WILL FIND IT.

If you choose to FIGHT, then you are saying that even though trouble has come to my door, “I AM GOING TO TROUBLE MY TROUBLE”.

It is an attitude and understanding. 

Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Romans 8:31, What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Matthew 17:20, So Jesus said to them, “ Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Pray in the Holy Spirit, pray in tongues often and always.

POWER THROUGH WITH JESUS!
He has never failed you. He will never leave you. He is always faithful.
Laying down and giving up, GETS YOU NOTHING!
STAND UP AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS – FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH!!

MY LIFE STINKS!


I_HATE_MY_LIFE_

For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4 AMP)

Have you had those days, no, those years when you hated your life?

It seems like everything that could go wrong has and will again!!!

When this occurs there are choices to make.

1Lay down and give up
2Whine and go into depression
3Get up and GRAB YOUR VICTORY!

Ok, this is what I do…
I am going to be transparent…..
I usually whine and complain for about an hour. I allow myself that time for a pity party. It never fixes anything, but, it feels good to the flesh.

You can HATE your life, your situation, your family, your job, your church, but that is not the problem. It will not change anything to HATE your life.
Jesus did not come for you to HATE your life, He came to give you life and life more abundant (John 10:10).

VICTORY comes over your situation when you decide that laying in the mud does not fix anything. We are still so very blessed in our lives in America.

Do me a favor today
1Write down the bad things in your life on a piece of paper.
2Write down all the blessings, and begin to thank Him right out loud. 
a. Psalms 30:12, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
b. Psalms 150:6, Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!

YOU WILL FIND THAT YOUR BLESSINGS FAR OUT WEIGH YOUR STRUGGLES.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE A DEMONIC ASSIGNMENT


spiritual-warfare_edited-1-710x399

HOW DO I KNOW IF IT IS THE FLESH, OR A DEMON TRYING TO INFLUENCE ME?

That is an awesome question!!

The flesh we are able to CONTROL according to the Word of God.

Rom. 6:6-7, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin.

WHEN THE DRIVE OR LETHARGY IS SO INTENSE THAT JUST CONTROLLING THE FLESH IS NOT ENOUGH.

We know that the first assignment was DIVISION.  Whenever you see division you know it is demonic.  That is one thing I have no tolerance toward.  A person that will split a church is working on Satan’s team!  A person striving to split a home is on Satan’s team.  Division is not seen in the Word of God.  God adds and multiplies, but you do not see subtraction or division.

YOU KNOW IT IS A DEMONIC ASSIGNMENT WHEN IT IS AIMED AT TAKING YOU OUT OF YOUR DESTINY, OR OUT OF THE HOUSE OF GOD WHERE YOUR DESTINY IS DIRECTLY LINKED.

We also know that if it is an attack on what Jesus paid for on the cross it is not from heaven.

HEALTH

If Satan can attack your health he will strive to kill, or simply derail you from your purpose.

Mental health – depression, suicide is never from God.

WEALTH

If Satan attacks your money, then he will get you to stop tithing, and will get you so overwhelmed with more that you will trade God for $1.25 raise.

Satan will attack others in their wealth by giving them abundance so they become distracted from their purpose of loving others with the blessing.

RELATIONSHIPS

Marriages – destroy a marriage = affect a family!

Church relationships – pitting against each other – no production – people quit going to God’s home.

IF THERE IS NEGATIVE ACTIVITY IN THESE AREAS THEN YOU KNOW THAT IT IS NOT FROM JESUS, IT IS AN ASSIGNMENT AGAINST YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

TAKE A SPIRITUALLY AGGRESSIVE POSTURE AND BIND UP THAT DEVIL.  TAKE AUTHORITY IN JESUS’ NAME!  DO NOT PASIFY, OR PLACATE THE DEMON SPIRIT – BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT!

Demonic Depression Pt. 3


demon of depression

Prov 23:7, AS A MAN THINKS, SO HE IS……

As you think, you are, as you are, you SPEAK, as you speak, you seed, as you seed, you will HARVEST!

When you have a real situation and you start speaking death, anti-Word, doubt, unbelief, YOU HAVE INVITED THE DEMONIC INTO YOUR CIRCUMSTANCE AND DISQUALIFIED JESUS FROM HELPING.

Ephesians 4:27, Do not give place for the devil

When you give place for the devil he will begin to lie to you, agree with your doubts and fears.  He will start vocalizing it in your mind, and at times even louder.

YOU WILL BEGIN TO SPIRAL INTO DEEPER DEPRESSION AND SATAN WILL BEGIN TO TELL YOU THERE IS NO HOPE, NO WAY OUT!

SATAN WILL TELL YOU TO KILL YOURSELF!

John 10:10 – Satan’s whole job is to kill, steal, and destroy you!

WHEN SUICIDE BECOMES A THOUGHT IN YOUR HEAD, THEN YOU KNOW A DEMON IS INVOLVED IN YOUR LIFE!

John 10:10, Jesus came to bring you life, not death!

1 Peter 5:8-9, Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

YOU MUST REBUKE SATAN – SUICIDE IS NEVER A THOUGHT FROM JESUS – THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE!

Never give up!  Never allow the demonic to whisper suicidal thoughts into your mind.

SPEAK THE WORD!

READ THE WORD!

FIND A FRIEND FILLED WITH FAITH!

REBUKE THE DEVIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

Demonic depression is when it goes that next step beyond just stinking thinking.  It is opening that door with our spoken words (demons only know what you tell them).

THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD!

YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST!

I AM MORE THAN A CONQUERER THROUGH JESUS!

A pilot was training a new flight student and the nose of the plane was aimed down.  The flight instructor told the student a simple task, “PULL UP ON THE STICK”.

LOOK UP – LOOK TO JESUS – FIX YOUR EYES ON HIM!

Rebuke the devil and he will FLEE!

Demonic Depression pt. 1


demon of depression

DEPRESSION USUALLY FALLS UNDER 3 CAUSES:

1) Medical Depression (chemical balance is abnormal, thyroid issues, the majority is vitamin deficiencies)

2) Stinking thinking (most talk negative and start the descent into emotional depression)

3) Demonic Depression

Prov 23:7, As a man thinks, so he is….

2 Cor. 10:3-6, For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

AS A PERSON THINKS SO THEY ARE!

Luke 6:45b,  For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

AS A PERSON IS, SO THEY SPEAK!

The principle of sowing and reaping is solid in the Word of God!

Gal. 6:7, Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

When you talk death (Prov. 18:21, Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.), you get depression, loss of hope, declining faith!  Whatever seed you plant is the harvest you will digest.

YOU ARE FEEDING TODAY ON THE SEEDS YOU ALREADY PLANTED!  SO IF YOU ARE IN DEPRESSION, WHAT WERE YOU SPEAKING?  REPENT!  YOUR WORDS SHOW THE CONDITION OF THE HEART, AND CREATE THE HARVEST OF YOUR LIFE!

What does this have to do with DEMONIC DEPRESSION?  

EVERYTHING…….

More tomorrow!

STINKING THINKING = DEPRESSION pt. 2


Prov 23:7, As a man thinks, so he is….

2 Cor. 10:3-6, For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

AS A PERSON THINKS SO THEY ARE…..

AS A PERSON IS SO THEIR HEART IS……

OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART SO WE SPEAK…..

AS WE SPEAK, WE PLANT SEEDS OF LIFE OR DEATH…..

WE ALWAYS HARVEST THE SEEDS WE PLANT…

WHAT IS YOUR HARVEST RIGHT NOW?

WHEN DID YOU PLANT THOSE SEEDS?

If you are speaking failure, then why are you shocked when you fail?

If you are speaking depression, then why are you shocked if you are depressed?

No matter what the trouble is that is in your life you have the ability to THINK THE WORD, and to DECLARE THE TRUTH over those circumstances.

THINKING THE WORD (Josh. 1:8), PRODUCES A CORRECT HEART, WHICH EQUALS CORRECT PLANTING OF WORDS!

The words we are speaking are really what we have in our hearts.

DISQUALIFY DEPRESSION IN YOUR LIFE BY QUALIFYING THE WORDS COMING FROM YOUR HEART…BEFORE THEY LEAVE YOUR TONGUE.

STINKING THINKING = DEPRESSION pt. 1


The number one reason for depression is not the devil, it’s not that everyone has a chemical imbalance, the TRUTH is that most people have STINKING THINKING!

We think ourselves into a depressive state of mind!

Prov 23:7, As a man thinks, so he is….

As Christians we have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16), and we are walk by faith and not by sight (2 Cor 5:7).

That means when a travesty occurs in our lives we do not react the same way the world does.  HOW YOU THINK, WHAT THOUGHTS YOU ALLOW IN DETERMINE WHO YOU ARE!

2 Cor. 10:3-6, For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

We are told to take into captivity every thought that would raise itself up above God, His Word, His principles, His TRUTHS!

We have authority over our minds.  They do not control us, but we control them.  Our minds do not have the right to run rampant with fear, doubt and unbelief.  We have the power and authority in the name of Jesus to control those thoughts, and to bring them into captivity.

WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH DEPRESSION?  EVERYTHING!

Prov 23:7, As a man thinks, so he is….

Kick Depression Like King David!


1 Sam. 30:6, David was now in great danger because all his men were very bitter about losing their sons and daughters, and they began to talk of stoning him. But David found strength in the LORD his God.

David, the young man that was anointed King over all Israel.

David, the young man who through the Lord killed the massive giant who mocked God’s people.

David, the one who killed his 10,000’s!

HOW COULD HE EVEN HAVE DEPRESSION TRY TO COME ON HIM?

In our minds, we picture a person struggling with depressive thoughts as an individual who is poor, alone, and with only failure in their lives.

WHAT A FALSE PICTURE!

Thoughts of depression come upon EVERY SINGLE PERSON!

David had King Saul turn against him and literally hunting him like an animal.  A spear was chucked at him, threats were spewed at him, hatred, not love was his lot.

SO DAVID MADE A CHOICE WHEN THE THOUGHTS OF DEPRESSION CAME UPON HIM.

HE CHOSE TO ENCOURAGE HIMSELF IN THE LORD, not sit in the sewer of his own mind.

Pull the David prescription today and you will find the temptation of depression lose its grip in your day!

Ps. 13, O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul,

with sorrow in my heart every day? How long will my enemy have the upper hand?  Turn and answer me, O Lord my God!  Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die.  Don’t let my enemies gloat, saying, “We have defeated him!”  Don’t let them rejoice at my downfall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love.  I will rejoice because you have rescued me.  I will sing to the Lord  because he is good to me. 

DO NOT SIT IN THE SEWER OF YOUR MIND – ENCOURAGE YOURSELF IN THE LORD TODAY!
