Feeling Rejected? Never Fear God will Always Be With You!

Danny and I were sharing things about our life with friends last week. He said, “We would have gotten married immediately if she’d been more than 16!”  It blessed my heart to know that he felt that way.  Those words were spoken because of love. The love he has for me is different from banana nut bread love or sci-fi movie love. He loves both of those! But he LOVES me.  I am set apart from any other love he has. He took me as his own and I took his name as mine.  He made a home and brought me to it.  Everything he owned became mine too. There was no question.  He never said, “no that’s mine” or “you can’t have that” or “don’t touch it”.  Rather he gave it all freely to me.  Because he loves me , he’s never taken one thing back.  Still freely given.  To this day. As he said that day so long ago, “From this day forward…” To experience true love, real love, is quite amazing. To know that a person would give themselves so completely to you is astounding. I didn’t bring a dowry, I didn’t own a thing. I had nothing to bring into the marriage but me and yet that was enough for Danny.  

I know that you may have experienced rejection at the hand of one you loved, or the hand of a family member, a boss or a spiritual leader. Rejection hits at the core of our being. It says to the one who is rejected, you are not good enough, you are a problem, you caused this…and more. You may be dealing with the rejection of a friend who you thought would be there forever. Rejection can come in the form of denial, denunciation or dismissal. It can come privately or publicly.  Rejection could be recent and feeling like a fresh cut needing stitches or it could be a festering wound from childhood.  You may find sorrow in the rejection but you can find joy in the fact that you are betrothed to the One Who will never leave you or forsake you!

Oh beloved, how God loves you! He has called you to be His own. He has set you apart for His purpose.  He has a Home reserved just for you and He will take you there. In the meantime your home is His heart! Everything, yes, everything is yours, In Him. His Word is full of the blessings of the bride of Christ. As a bride you have been made complete, you are given the keys to the Kingdom and your future is totally secure.   Run to His Word and read your Marriage Certificate! It’s signed and sealed by the Blood of the Lamb! No force on earth can block it, no spirit in the air can quench it and no foe can defeat it! Halleujah to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Isaiah 54:5 “For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth.

Ephesians 3:19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.

Ezekial 16:60 Nevertheless, I will remember My covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an everlasting covenant with you.

Ephesians 1:3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.

Psalm 118:29  Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever

Psalm 94:14 The LORD will not reject His people;  He will not abandon His special possession.
