Shake off rejection they say but its never that easy. Sometimes I think that I need to climb into this invisible box and stay there so that the world’s use of words in the form of rejection does not get to me. Press the delete button on negative comments but it’s never that easy. Use positive thoughts to overcome negative thoughts but it’s never that easy.
People are rejected every day but yet they say to shake off rejection like water on a duck’s back. But it’s never that easy. When you think of rejection what’s comes to mind? Emotions and feelings is what comes to mind when people are rejected they feel hurt, they feel like someone has ripped them apart and left them out to dry.
He who hears and heeds you [disciples] hears and heeds Me; and he who slights and rejects you slights and rejects Me; and he who slights and rejects Me slights and rejects Him who sent Me – Luke 10:16 AMP
Shake off rejection because the devil will keep on using rejection against you time and time again. When you are winning and the blessings are flowing, the devil will throw rejection in your face. If they reject you, they are rejecting God; God is He who sent Jesus. Its one of my favourite verses to fight off rejection. You can only be a successful at fighting off rejection when you open up to God and tell Him what you are feeling.
You do not have because you do not ask God – James 4:12 NIV
Ask Him to help you to be strong and fight off rejection, you can only be successfully at overcoming rejection with God’s help. You may think you have defeated rejection but it will always be there in the back of your mind. But until you realise this simple truth, that only God can truly help you, you will never defeat rejection. This is probably not what you wanted to hear but it is what it is, God will/has given you the tools to defeat rejection if you trust in Him and His promises.
A positive mind moves mountains!
