Are you feeling rejected, your emotions going off the charts, assuming, and maybe even panicked over some situation in your life? Does your heart feel broken? Or, do you know someone who has a broken heart? When we put our problems in God’s hands, He put His peace in our hearts. 

God has made a way to heal every place that hurts. He has made a way to heal your wounds of rejection and bring you into acceptance with Him. The steps to being healed from rejection are simple, but not always easy in life. You can succeed as you partner with the Holy Spirit of God. 

The Bible says: He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5 NKJV).

Many have walked in and out of toxic and abusive relationships….from marriage to even business. Almost every person has experienced some form of rejection at one time or another. Your date didn’t show up, you were snubbed by a friend, you didn’t make it on the team or the school play, you were not accepted at the college of your choice, you didn’t get the position you thought you should have gotten, to a spouse walking out for another person and the pain of divorce. Rejection can be simply put as the sense of being unwanted and unloved. Rejection can leave a person feeling empty….and trying to fill a void that only God can fill. 

Closely related to rejection are the wounds of shame and betrayal. A leader or friend gossips and shares a confidence saying it’s called prayer to trying to harm you on purpose. Society is suffering from a progressive breakdown of interpersonal relationships, lack of respect and showing honor.  

Because God wants to use you as a world changer, the devil tries to emotionally cripple every person at a young age so they do not step into their God-given destiny. Rejection can be paralyzing if we don’t have spiritual eyesight. When our focus is on the world and not on God, we start to live in darkness. Satan will set you up to be upset…and use the very people you least expect. 

Satan is afraid of what you can become in Jesus Christ. So listen up…the people who have walked through hell on earth and been the lowest often end up the highest in God. The Scriptures tell us, “He who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 18:14). God wants to use you to advance His Kingdom. Run to God and receive healing…and reach out a helping hand to others who are walking in pain. Both our ability and inclination to love God and other people spring from the grasp and understanding of His great love for us. Ask God to give you a heart like His….to see what He sees, feel what He feels….and a desire to be an extension of His heart to all you meet. 

God equips us and empowers us to comfort those where we have been comforted. If you truly knew the gift of God—His great love for you—you would be enthralled by Him. 

There is a beautiful verse in the Bible that describes the amazing love of Jesus Christ for people….for you reading this now:

“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them…” (Matthew 9:36a NKJV).

The Greek word translated “compassion” implies a forceful, physical reaction in a person’s body in the abdominal area. It is a reaction so strong that it demands a response. A person who is moved by compassion has to do something. A person who is “moved with compassion” cannot sit on the sidelines and only observe. They are constrained by the love of God and moved by compassion to do something. Why was Jesus so moved? 

“….because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd” (Matthew 9:36b NKJV). 

If this is how you feel…..stressed, angry, fearful, anxious, burdened down, weary, harried, confused, and perplexed….Jesus sees you….just as He saw the multitudes. Jesus has compassion for you and He is longing to heal every place that hurts. 

One of the most common roots of all personal problems is rejection. A marriage fails and one or both spouses experience rejection. Children are left feeling the wounds of abandonment. I remember clearly walking with my daddy and can still feel my hand in his as we walked when I was a child up the mountain. Just a few years ago, I remember laying my head on his chest on a few occasions as we stayed with him for the last 17 days of his precious life…with his hand on mine and my sister’s heads. We just wanted to cherish every minute with our father. 

We were surrounded by family, friends, and people that God used to encourage us. Our wonderful God-fearing mother never left our father’s side…she is a gift from God. Family is a gift from God! Cherish the people in your life. 

There is no greater feeling of security than that of a father…being in his arms…and climbing up in his lap with your head resting on his strong chest….it feels secure. God designed every person to crave this kind of security. A child can never truly be fulfilled, satisfied, or secure without parental love—especially love from a father. God is our perfect Heavenly Father….

The picture of broken families and rejection is rampant. Children grow up to be adult children with wounds of rejection. Sometimes there is the added pain of betrayed trust…and always great heartache. 

With the insurmountable pressures of life and the added pressures of breakup, most people have experienced some form of rejection. God sees everything and He foresaw this end-time crisis of broken relationships when He gave this promise in Scripture in the book of Malachi:

“See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. 

He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse” (Malachi 4:5-6). 

For those who will turn to God through Jesus, there is healing. 

“He has made us accepted in the Beloved” (Ephesians 1:6 NKJV)—Jesus.

ALWAYS HEED WARNING SIGNS

Written by Deborah.

111(1)“And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left” (Isaiah 30:21). 

It’s important to heed warnings from God. It’s like driving your car down the road, seeing a sign that says “Detour,” “One Way,” “Curve Ahead,” and heeding the signs to avoid getting into an unsafe situation. It’s the same in our walk with God. 

God sends signs and warnings along our path in life as well. If you will heed the warnings, you will be able to safely remain on course. Always follow peace in your heart and you will be going in the right direction. 

Always listen to God—obey the leading of His Holy Spirit. Only God can be counted on to never fail you. If you have failed to heed a warning or several from God, there is still hope. Take time to read 1 John 1:9. 

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

When trouble starts in life, too often people listen to the wrong people—the naysayers. Don’t listen to the “What if’s” from other people. Keep your trust in God, your focus on Him, and seek the LORD for His direction…even in the midst of difficult circumstances. Don’t react—stay calm—stay in peace—and wait on the Lord. Trust Him! 

“As for you, be calm and cool and steady” (1 Timothy 4:5). 

With God, all things are possible. In 2012, the LORD allowed me to see the stop sign above on the corner of Vail Avenue and Randolph Road in Charlotte. It was in a time of great need–my husband was in the hospital at Mercy. God raised him from death, healed him from two strokes, and walked with us through his two open heart surgeries. God was faithful then and He is still faithful today. If you need encouragement, take time to read A LEAP OF FAITH (25 Days At The Mercy Seat) …available on Amazon, www.starministriesinc.com, xulon.com and other book distributors. It will give you increased faith to believe God for anything. Make sure to pray the confession prayer inside the book. Always read God’s Word…abide In Christ through prayer and study. It will change your life forever. 

God bless you and stop worrying. God is in control. I don’t know what you’re walking through, but God is with you. He is full of mercy and grace and brings justice to all. The Blood of Jesus covers you–the Blood answers from the Mercy Seat in Heaven–as believers in Christ, we are seated with Him in heavenly places–and we win in the Courts of Heaven. 

HIS LOVE and mine,

ANY WORDS OF OURS…MAY BE OUR LAST

IMG_8631Make your words count. Do what is right in the sight of the Lord…always. 

“Moses finished reciting all the words” (Deuteronomy 32:45). He said to them, “Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess” (Deut. 32:46-47 NIV). 

Be reminded of verse 43: “Rejoice, O nations, with his people, for he will avenge the blood of his servants; he will take vengeance on his enemies and make atonement for his land and people.” 

These are powerful words from God. God takes care of his own. He is long-suffering, but God makes the records straight. The Holy Spirit reveals all hidden truth and shows us things to come. We are in the hands of the one who fed the hungry multitudes, and beckoned weary hearts to rest. We are in His hands, those pierced hands, once nailed to Calvary’s tree, where Jesus paid the price in full…for you and me. Jesus came to set us free. He wants us to be made whole so we speak life to all we meet. 

Moses knew it was the end for him; we may not know when our end is at hand…when we will draw our last breath. Any word of our ours…may be our last. What will people remember you by? Your encouraging words, godly counsel, or yelling and screaming and pitching a fit? 

If we always thought about our words, that they could be our last, would it not make us more careful? Would we ever say an unkind word to our spouse, our parents, our children, or to a friend who has stood by us through thick and thin? Would we say an unkind word to a dear friend who was perhaps a little short in their attitude, only to find out they had terminal cancer and were sick? Would we ever say an unkind word if we felt we may not have the opportunity to make it right? Would we ever utter an unclean, angry, or untrue word if we knew it would be our last? 

Surely we all want to have beautiful endings to our life, to leave a legacy of sweet memories behind in the hearts of our family, friends, and those who love us. We want the memory of our final words to leave a heartfelt, tender joy with those we love as the days pass. 

Only by making sure that every word we speak glorifies God can we be certain our last words will be beautiful memories. For with any goodbye on the phone, to any sentence we speak to family, friends, neighbors, and those around us, we may come to the end of our days. 

Make your words count…for all eternity. Pray to God to keep a pure and tender heart. Bring joy to all you meet. “The Lord watches over those who do what is right, and he hears their prayers” (Psalm 34:15).
