Everyone struggles with fears of, or the pain from rejection. Rejection strikes the core of our innermost being causing intense pain and harm. Rejection leads to relationship failure, addictions, spiritual struggles, etc.
What is God’s cure for rejection? The answer is simple. It is Love!
However, it is God’s love as experienced in our inner being. Author Dave A. Seamands, in his book, “Freedom from the Performance Trap” p. 67 states: “In some Christians, however, damaged emotions are so intertwined with sins of the Spirit that special healing and reprogramming are necessary.”
This author understands precisely the damage from rejection.
God’s love and healing comes by applying
Colossians 2:6. It states:
“As ye have therefore receive Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him:”
How do we receive Christ Jesus?
We ask him to come into our heart by painting over our sin of disbelief. The same is true for rejection. We confess to the Lord our sin of believing we are unlovable. According to God’s Truth, it is a fact that we ARE lovable, therefore, we believe it to be true.
The exchange takes place, and we are now free in Christ in this area of our life.
This is God’s cure for rejection.
