Overcoming rejection (2)

June 19, 2020

“I praise you because I am…wonderfully made.” Ps 139:14 NIV

 

In order to overcome fear of rejection, you must firmly believe that God designed you physically, intellectually, and temperamentally, and gave you an assignment no one else can fulfill. Putting yourself down may seem humble, but it’s actually a form of pride because it’s causing you to reject God’s design and plan for you. So begin to emphatically declare with the psalmist: “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God” (vv. 14-17 NLT). Where did you get the idea that you are “less than”? Whether it started with critical parents, condemning clergy, unwise teachers, cruel classmates, or a verbally abusive spouse, remember that Satan is the “father of lies” (Jn 8:44 NLT). He used someone to lie to you about your worth and potential. Repeat: “It was a lie! It was a lie! It was a lie!” Decide to reject that lie now. In other words, reject rejection! Make a list of every God-given gift, asset, advantage, or other benefit you possess that is, or could be, a blessing to others. Don’t use worldly systems in developing your list. Focus on character issues such as integrity, loyalty, generosity, discernment, wisdom, and patience. Think of ways you can use each one of these features to glorify God and be a blessing to others.
