Rejection

Rejection

Individuals who are rooted in rejection experiences various painful repercussions. Rejection and the memories of being rejected are very painful emotionally and when someone is rooted in rejection, it’s like a recorder is being rewound throughout the day or on a daily basis. It is so painful that without even being aware of it, people develop their own little systems of protecting themselves, and in their attempt to avoid the pain of rejection, they often create more pain for themselves in other areas. Those who are rooted in rejection usually use isolation and loneliness, they think if they do not get involved with people, they can’t be rejected by them.Other areas rejection is manifested is being a “People Pleaser”, if we’re pleasing people all the time, then they will not reject you because they will never find anything wrong with you.

The problem with “People Pleasing”, is that you can’t please people; ninety percent of the time, people don’t know what they want themselves, their minds are constantly changing of what they want, what they want to do, how to do it, when to do it, who or who not to do it with, how long it should be done; it’s a chase after something that can’t be caught. People pleasing also steals your freedom from being who you are and what you was meant to be. It open doors for people to control and manipulate you and then this will open doors for resentment, and anger and misery. Rejection will make us build walls to keep others out, but it also will wall you in. Isolation will also open the door to depression, suppression, and oppression. The majority of believers don’t believe in the spirit realm, but there is a spirit realm and we open ourselves to different spirits when we disregard their presence. Believe it or not, this is what Satan wants the nonbeliever as well as the believer to think they aren’t real so they can continue to influence your thoughts and actions.

Rejection will cause us to think people are rejecting us when they aren’t and it will place a strain on any relationship when someone is always trying to prove to us they love us and they aren’t rejecting us. When feeling rejected, one should ask themselves why do they feel rejected and if they can’t find an answer then the thought needs to be dismissed. Remove the wall and decide for yourself, if I am rejected by any person I know for a surety that I have not been rejected by God nor His Son. Remove the wall, remove the isolation and be around people, it’s better to be occasional rejected than to be continual in bondage. Rejection is bondage and it brings other baggage with it before you know it you’re being weighed down in your emotions and the emotion will either keep you isolated or lashes out with others or bring depression. Many who are suffering from depression is not medically but emotionally because of something they have been through that can be healed when they refuse to allow their emotions to keep them from freedom by releasing the emotions, the person and the action.

God created us for love and acceptance, not rejection and since we were not created to be rejected nothing in our entire being has the capacity to handle it without the help of the Lord. Whether we believe in God or not, He never leaves us or forsake us, He’s just waiting to hear from you asking for His help.

 

Marriage

Marriage

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder – Matthew 19:6

The Pharisees try to tempt Jesus with a difficult question. They wanted to test His wisdom with one of the most controversial questions of their day regarding divorce according to the Mosaic Law but Jesus refers them to God’s original purpose in creation, that they should be “one flesh” indicates that being one flesh is one new entity, and is not limited to sexual union. The Bible clearly indicates that sexual union does not itself constitute marriage, which is fundamentally a covenantal agreement between two partners for life. (more…)

What’s Going On

What’s Going On

Are you confused about what is happening in your life at this moment? Or perhaps you lack understanding about things that have occurred in the past. Do you find yourself asking God where have you sinned or maybe why is this happening to me, I live a good life, I don’t hurt anyone, I try to do the right thing? Confusion occurs when we try to figure out what we don’t understand, and Satan is there always to give an answer that God is angry or doesn’t love you. The believer has the privilege to remain in peace even when she does not understand what has happened, what is happening or what will happen in the future. We can be content to know the One who knows all even when we don’t has our future, and we can rely on Him and His Word.

We serve a God that never sleeps or slumber; nothing takes Him by surprise! If we trust in Him we will not lean to our understanding. What we see in the natural may not be actual what’s happening in the spirit realm. What we see and feel is temporal, but the Word of God is for eternity and has been established in heaven. We are more concerned with temporal things, and God is concerned with eternal things. If we think carnally and temporally and God is doing something spiritually and eternally, then it is easy to see why we would not understand and mind you, everything happening in our life we will not understand until God give us revelation. Many have been taught “Don’t question God,” this is incorrect if we don’t ask Him who are we going to ask? It is God that created us; it is God that know every thought and intention of the heart. It is God that knows the beginning and the end, so why not ask Him? The problem comes when we ask Him in the wrong spirit which means without reverence and respect.

Have you every prayed and you didn’t receive an answer to your prayer? When we don’t receive an answer, that’s when we need to check to see if we were praying according to the Word of God which is His will. It could be it’s not the time for the prayer to be answered, it’s not denied, but delayed. Something we pray for God has to prepare us for them, and preparation will cause God to prune us, pruning us to bear fruit that will glorify God and pruning never feel good! God will place you in a position and give you the opportunity to bear fruit, if you bear good fruit for the Kingdom, God will work with you, teaching you, giving instructions of what to do and what not to do, when to do it, and how to do it. As Christian women, God wants the Fruit of the Spirit to be in operation in our lives, the Fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. In order for the fruits to be active, God will allow whatever it takes to come into our lives to activate them.

Love is hard to give to someone when they have mistreated you or disappointed you. Some may say it’s hard to have joy when it seems as though all hell have come against you, this is why as Christian women, we need the fulfilling of the Holy Spirit, it is He that activate the Fruit and make them operate effectively. Whether we are Christians or none-Christians we all will have issues and circumstances, but with Jesus, we should know if God allowed it, then He will make way for it to work together for our good although it may not seem as though it’s working for our good. When we abide in the Lord and His Word, He gives a perfect peace that surpasses all human understanding. Rest in the Lord, trust His Word, ask Him questions you don’t understand, look for Him to give an answer. It may not be audible because He uses different avenues to give answers. God always gives us an entrance and an exit, allow Him to mold and shape you into what He desires you to be, allow Him to activate spiritual fruit so that you will glorify Him and be a blessing to others.
