REJECT REJECTION!


reject

Eph. 3:17-19,  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

The SEED, the ROOT, and the TREE, should be producing the FRUIT OF LOVE!

When we allow rejection to take root it grows up into an ugly, twisted, mangled tree that produces sour, rotten, or no fruit.

WE MUST REJECT THE ROOT OF REJECTION!

It comes down to worth.  Where do we obtain our worth?

If we are measuring our worth by people then we are going to be rejected and wounded.

Galatians 1:10 – For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

BUT

If we get our worth and value from the TRUTH, then no matter what someone does to us we can remain SOLID and HEALTHY.

Who is sitting in the chief chair of your life?

When we place God where He belongs in our lives and we aim to please Him, our value is generated by being hidden in Christ.

WE ARE WHO FATHER SAYS WE ARE!

WE CAN DO WHAT THE FATHER SAYS WE CAN DO!

No matter what anyone else does to us we are solid in our worth because of who Jesus says we are!

I CHALLENGE YOU TODAY TO LOOK AT YOUR LIFE AND MAKE SURE THAT JESUS IS #1, AND HE IS SEATED IN THE HEAD CHAIR OF YOUR LIFE.

HE IS FAITHFUL, HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU, HE WILL NEVER REJECT YOU, HE WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, HE WILL NEVER ABANDON YOU, HE WILL NEVER THROW YOU AWAY!

Make Jesus #1 today, and everyone else #2.

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!

INDEPENDENCE from JESUS!


independence

ALWAYS IDENTIFYING THE ROOT ENABLES YOU TO MAKE SURE THAT THE WEEDS DO NOT RETURN.

THE ROOT PROBLEM IN MOST BELIEVERS’ LIVES IS THAT THEY ARE INDEPENDENT FROM GOD IN MULTIPLE AREAS OF THEIR LIVES!!

Nobody wants to go to the Lake of Fire, so many have come and submitted their lives to Jesus for salvation.

Rom. 10:9,  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

BUT…..THAT IS AS FAR AS THEY ARE WILLING TO SUBMIT THEIR LIVES.

Many want to remain in control of their families, wealth, health, and their obedience level.

HERE IS THE ISSUE!!

The ROOT SIN of Lucifer, and Adam and Eve was that they chose to be INDEPENDENT from God.

Their INDEPENDENCE caused weakness and separation from the LIFE GIVER, THE CREATOR, THE MASTER, THE KING, THE LORD!

Are you submitted to the Word of God in your daily walk?  

Are you submitted to the Word of God in your finances?

Are you submitted to the Word of God in your obedience?

IF THE WORD DECLARES IT ARE YOU WILLING TO SUBMIT TO THE WORD OR REMAIN INDEPENDENT?

Jesus was faced with this same decision in the Garden.

Luke 22:41-43,  And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

WE WOULD NOT BE SAVED TODAY IF JESUS CHOSE INDEPENDENCE FROM THE FATHER’S WILL!

LIVES DEPEND ON OUR DEPENDENCE TO THE WORDS OF GOD.

So many have caused their own struggle and stress because they have chosen to not SUBMIT in OBEDIENCE to Jesus.

WHERE ARE YOU INDEPENDENT IN YOUR WALK WITH CHRIST?

WHERE IN YOUR LIFE ARE TELLING GOD YOU WILL NOT SUBMIT IN OBEDIENCE?
