How to Live Without the Fear of Rejection

Rejection is a spirit or feeling that almost everyone has been affected by in their lives. It is a predictable and common tactic of the devil to use this spirit to undermine and assault people to cause them to limp through life with a skewed perspective, believing that they don’t belong. Rejection causes us to have low self-esteem and self-worth.

Even King David, one of the Bible’s greatest men struggled with rejection. There were many opportunities in his youth that gave the enemy entrance into his thoughts. David’ older brothers mocked him and seemed to view him as insignificant. His father Jesse also seemed to reflect this belief about David. He didn’t even call David when Samuel asked to see all of his sons (1 Samuel 16:1-13). The Psalms are filled with David’s struggles and his desire to connect with God.

Because we live in a fallen world with imperfect people, we will all have opportunities to believe lies. Perfectionistic, demanding parents may unknowingly communicate a wrong message. Trauma from sexual abuse or attacks will cause us to believe lies.

Like David, we can be free of rejection and insecurities. God’s plan for us is always redemptive, knowing that our adversary is always on the prowl. God desires that we walk in the fullness of sonship, believing that we belong to the family of God, and that He is a very present Father. When we have revelation of sonship instead of an orphan spirit, we will begin to not only survive, but thrive.

How do we go from rejected to belonging?

First, we must recognize that because the enemy comes many times when we are children, we grow up with wrong thoughts that become a mental stronghold. Thoughts are processed through this stronghold give even more credence to our wrong belief.  We need to seek revelation by the power of Holy Spirit to identify these strongholds. Once we realize how a belief system has been operating, we need to seek God and His word to dismantle it. Holy Spirit can reveal truth in the darkness and bring freedom. Believing and applying God’s work can help us rebuild our thoughts into healthy mindsets.  Proverbs 23:7 says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” As we think and meditate on God’s truth, we will begin to walk in freedom.

 

Enter God’s Perfect Peace

Jesus is Our Prince of Peace

Our God is not a God of disorder, rushing, chaos, confusion, strife, disfunction or drama. He is our Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).

Maybe you are already used to seeing or experiencing chaos in your life that you have not yet surrendered the chaos to the Lord to receive His divine peace. Perhaps you have seen enough destruction and disorder in your life (or in your family’s lives) and you want to be free of it. You can have God’s peace at any point in your life. You simply need to invite God into your situation and He will pour out His Spirit and transform your atmospheres.

Where Does Disorder Come From?

The devil is the Father of Disorder and Chaos. He seeks to divide and destroy God’s plans for your life. You need to know which pathways are God’s will for you and which ones are detours that Satan puts in your way to derail you.

One way to know if the opportunities you come across are not from God is to discern whether you feel peace or stress and anxiety.

Matthew 12:25

Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.”

Learn to Walk in God’s Will

Stress is an open door to spiritual warfare! The enemy wants us to be in chaos and disorder because it keeps us from our divine calling. God has called us to have a sound mind and to prosper in all that we do.

Stress and rushing things will keep you from keeping a sound mind in Christ and possibly cause you to take wrong turns in your life. Never rush God’s plans for you. When the timing is right, your dreams and passions will come to life. Just listen and wait on the Lord and He alone will tell you when to move.

A sign that you are walking with God and in His will is Peace. Abide in His Presence day and night. Declare scriptures of peace throughout your day, in your home, in your car, even at work. Take the Word of God with you everywhere.

Prayer For Peace

Dear Lord Jesus,

I place myself under your authority, King Jesus. I cover myself with your precious blood and I declare total peace over my mind, heart and my soul. I renounce the spirits of fear and anxiety. I draw a blood line between me and these spirits. They will no longer have permission to rule me in any way. I belong to my Heavenly Father who has given me Spirits of courage, love and of a sound mind.

Surround me with your supernatural peace as with a shield. Fill my home and work environment with your peace. Help me to wait on you and listen for your voice. Holy Spirit, I invite you into my day and ask you to lead me down the right paths in God’s perfect timing. Open the right doors and help me to see them. Let your perfect will be done in my life. In Jesus Name. Amen.
