OVERCOMING REJECTION by Pst Charles Chukwuemezie
Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Builders often reject stones, professionals who can approve you reject you. But the same stone which was rejected has become the head of the corner,
No matter how you are despised by men, you are marvelous in Gods eyes. The world might have said you are a failure, but Jesus has called you a winner. Therefore whoever rejects you is rejecting a blessing.
You might have lost your job, but maybe God wants you to start your own business and become a CEO.
Never allow people that don’t believe in you to decide your destiny. If you allow people’s opinion about you to count, then get ready to become a mass failure.
Take counsel, but if the counsel is not in line with Gods will and purpose, then reject their counsel.
Don’t stay in the midst of people that look down on you, move forward.
Read: 1 Samuel 16:1-13
David was rejected by his family, taken for a nobody, but he was the one Samuel came to anoint.
They have looked down on you, but tomorrow they will look up to you. Don’t let your background put your back to the ground.
They might look down on you, but God will not look down on you. The world might mock you, but God is sending men who will appreciate you.
Don’t stay around people who see failure in you. cut off friendships that do not help your success. If you are not going in the same direction, if they don’t support what God is doing in your life, cut them off.
You may be stressed and rugged because of situation, but don’t let it change your countenance. Don’t be depressed, keep looking beautiful
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
If they don’t love you, if anyman rejects you, Jesus loves you, he will bring someone better to you.
David’s father’s opinion was for him to tend the sheep. If you keep waiting for mans opinion, they will keep you far from your destiny.
Read: Psalm 27:11-14
Whatever you did not enjoy because of any circumstance, you will begin to enjoy it in quantum. You might have been mocked, but wait on the Lord. You might have been abused, wait on the Lord.
Don’t stay where you are tolerated. David stayed with the sheep where he was celebrated. It doesn’t matter how low the people are, if they celebrate you, stay there.
1 peter 2:4
To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
Man can disallow, but God will choose you. There is now no condemnation for they that are in Christ Jesus. If God be for you, who can be against you. You are a chosen generation.
Be proud of who you are, love yourself.
But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.
And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
If Jesus had stayed in Nazareth, he would have been termed a failure because he was despised there. Don’t deceive yourself staying where you are not liked. If someone rejects you, reject them.
Jesus did not work many miracles in Nazareth because they did not believe in him. If they don’t buy your vision, don’t believe in where you are going, move away from them.
Jesus was not called to be a carpenter, but God called him to be the messiah.
God bless you sir for these words have inspired us. Amen
