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!

A Knife Is Sticking Out Of My Heart!


broken-hearted

It does not matter if you are a muscle-bound man, or a petite little woman, we all have feelings, and they can get wounded.

I have watched men that are beasts break down and cry like little boys when their hearts have been broken.  I have also watched some petite little barbie girls not break down but turn the other direction, and that is bitter.

We are all going to have hurts in our lives.

It was never the plan of God!  God did not create us to have to experience rejection, betrayal, emotional wounds, but because of the fall of man our innocence was lost and sin entered in.  Since the fall of man our hearts can be harshly wounded.

The great part is that God has a plan!  He does not want us crushed by rejection, or demolished because of betrayal or loss, He wants us HEALED, WHOLE, HEALTHY, and Father has provided that for us through Jesus.

Is. 53:4-5,  Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

Jesus paid the price for your broken heart to be healed on the cross.  The doctors cannot do surgery, the drugs will only mask and cover, but Jesus can heal you so it does not hurt again!

Ps. 34:18, The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

Ps. 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.

Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, Toset at liberty those who are oppressed;

OK!  THIS IS WHAT WE DO NEXT!

1) Tell Jesus what you are feeling inside.  It is ok to cry, He is there listening and waiting to start the process of healing you.  You must be honest!

2) Ask Him to start the healing process in your heart.

3) Say this out loud, “Jesus, I receive your healing in my heart, today I choose to be healed and not wounded.”

4) Get ready, it has begun, you will start to see a change already because you have invited the HEALER TO START HIS LOVING WORK IN YOUR LIFE!

CUT YOUR ARM OFF!


cut

WHAT?

THAT IS SICK!

IS IT OR IS IT SHEAR INTELLIGENCE?

Matt. 18:8-9, If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.

SO JESUS IS TELLING ME TO HACK UP MY BODY?  THAT IS CRAZY!

Here is the TRUTH! 

If there is a thing, a place, a situation that is the gateway for the sin that constantly trips you up, then GET RID OF IT!

Heb 12:1, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…..

If you are an alcoholic and you keep going to the bar or buying booze……..

If you are addicted to drugs but keep hanging out with your friends who do drugs…..

If you have a problem with porn and you keep playing on your computer……

If you are having sex before or after marriage with someone you are not supposed to……

THE LIST OF SINS WOULD BE NEVER ENDING…THE POINT IS THIS…..

Get rid of, stop putting yourself in the places and around the people or circumstances that would tempt you with the sin that so easily ensnares you!  

TO BE ENSNARED MEANS YOU ARE OWNED BY IT!

Today is your day of decision to be FREE.  Choose to break off relationships, stop going certain places, cease surrounding yourself with temptations.

John 8:32, And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

JESUS SET YOU FREE!

GOUGE YOUR EYE OUT!

WHAT?

Ok, This is what I hear often, “the temptation is too strong Pastor.”

Let’s all be honest, we are all tempted with sin just like Adam and Eve were, BUT……..  We have an advantage!

WE HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVING INSIDE US!

Over the years, I have found that the people who continue to choose reputation end up allowing themselves to be placed in an environment where the sin is most prevalent.

Alcohol – DO NOT GO TO THE BARS AND PARTIES!

Drugs – DO NOT GO TO THE AREA OR HANG OUT WITH THE PEOPLE DOING THE DRUGS!

Swearing – DO NOT HANG OUT WITH THE PEOPLE THAT ARE CUSSING!

Porn – DO NOT GET ON YOUR COMPUTER OR BUY THE MAGAZINES!

Sex – DO NOT GO TO THE BOYFRIEND OR GIRLFRIENDS HOUSE!

Shopping – DO NOT GO TO THE STORES WITH CASH OR CREDIT CARDS!

WE HAVE TO MAKE CHOICES TO CUT OFF SIN FROM OUR LIVES.

JESUS SAID….

Matt 5:29-30,  If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

NO TEMPTATION IS TOO GREAT!

1 Cor 10:13,  The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand.

YOU MIGHT HAVE TO BREAK OFF OLD FRIENDSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS IF THEY CONTINUE TO BE USED TO TEMPT YOU WITH SIN!

GOUGE YOUR EYE OUT!
