YOU. ARE. ACCEPTED.

Jennifer Cole

Ever felt unworthy? Unloved? Overlooked, dismissed, despised or rejected? You are not alone. Truth is, everyone has felt rejected -- even the most secure, confident, “together” person you know! Somewhere, sometime in their lives they have felt the pain of being rejected and not accepted.

Sometimes feelings of rejection come from small things...and other times it might be something big that created a larger scar on the inside of you. Maybe you’ve been mistreated by people you thought you could trust. Maybe you’ve felt rejected by people because of your appearance, skin color, gender or economic status. Perhaps you’ve felt disappointed by a job promotion you didn’t get, or a broken engagement that broke your heart. And certainly...in any of our lives, the social media factor can really amp up the feelings of rejection...whether because of comparison or bullying or feeling invisible. No matter the source of rejection, it hurts.

>> But friends, I encourage you today to lift your eyes up to Him! God wants to free you from a spirit of rejection.

God sent Jesus to this earth to free us...from our sins, from rejection, from anything that would hold us back. Jesus knew what it meant to be rejected -- He was despised and rejected here on earth! We see this in Isaiah 53: “He was despised and rejected - a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down...He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed...And because of his experience, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins (Isaiah 53:3-5,11 NLT).

Jesus didn’t deserve it, but on the cross He was rejected so that through Him, we could be accepted. It’s so important that we frame our worldview based on His acceptance, not on the rejection we may have experienced from others. He wants to free you from a spirit of rejection. That is possible when you displace rejection with a fresh awareness and understanding of His love and acceptance for you!

This is the very reason Jesus came! Because of sin, we were separated from God — we were rejected. Sin would have kept us permanently separated from God. Because God loves us, He sent Jesus to take the rejection in our place — He took our sins upon Himself and become our substitute. On the cross, Jesus took the punishment we deserved...He was rejected so that we could be accepted.

Living from a place of God’s acceptance is so critical to your ongoing, vibrant connection with the Living God. You see, it is the enemy’s plan to create distance and separation between you and God. He wants you to feel inferior and unacceptable to God. The last thing the devil wants is for you to recognize and experience God’s acceptance through Jesus Christ.

So, if you’ve been living with a spirit of rejection -- feeling rejected by others, by the world, or by God -- spend some time with the Lord today and pray the prayer below out loud. Ask for His help in opening your heart to the freedom and fullness of His acceptance of you...and watch that acceptance flood every area of your life. After all, if God is for you, who can be against you? (Romans 8:31) And He’s for YOU!!

Say This: “Father, thank You for sending Jesus to make the ultimate sacrifice on the cross, so that through Him I am accepted! Lord, I ask You to heal me from a spirit of rejection. Heal me from hurts, big and little, recent and in the distant past. Thank You for flooding my heart with Your acceptance -- may Your approval become the strong foundation that I stand upon with confidence each day of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
