I wonder… are you like me? Have you ever dealt with REJECTION in your life?
- Have you ever felt ABANDONED? I have!
- Have you ever been EXCLUDED? I have!
- Have you ever been DIVORCED? I have!
The thing I hate about rejection is, it makes you feel like you’re not GOOD ENOUGH or subpar, in some way. It makes you feel like you can’t do ANYTHING to make people happy. (And I really like to make people happy.)
Rejection makes us doubt who we are in Christ Jesus.
I understand the horrible pain of rejection. But, could rejection actually be part of God’s PERFECT PLAN?
During my Bible study time, I came across Ephesians 1:5. “It was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children.”
That slayed me! It was ALWAYS His perfect plan to adopt you and me? Does that mean it was always His perfect plan for someone else to REJECT us?
Romans 8:28 says, “God works ALL THINGS together for the good of those who love Christ Jesus.”
If you’ve ever been rejected, you need to know that it was ALL part of the plan!
God needed us in that place for THAT SEASON, but staying there wasn’t in His plan! That person couldn’t go where He was taking us!
I know it hurts! But, God’s perfect plan HAS NOT been interrupted! He’s moving us out of that bad situation into something so much BETTER!
God’s perfect plan isn’t for us to remain rejected. It’s for us to, finally, be ADOPTED in!
You are an original! Nobody else can bake your cake! God has a detailed “recipe for success” designed and waiting especially for YOU!
