“Everyone the Father gives me will come to me, and the one who comes to me I will never cast out.” (John 6:36 CSB)
Rejection is something many of us, if not all of us, experiences. & it is no fun thing. It can cause us to be quite miserable, going about life with an orphan mentality, instead of one who is part of God’s family.
Rejection can lead to us feeling forgotten, dismayed, even angry, and it can take our eyes off of the love God has for us.
The dictionary definition of reject means to refuse, cut off, cast off, abandon, and cast aside.
People do this to one another all the time. If we placed our hope in people, we would always be experiencing rejection.
However, Jesus never does this to us! In fact, His word says the opposite. Jesus said this to the crowds following Him, “The will of my Father [is] that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him will have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6:39).
Jesus holds your life in very high regard! His love for you is higher than any height and deeper than any depth. His love for you is absolutely perfect and casts out any fear of rejection (1 John 14:18).
The next time rejection tries to come into your heart and plant seeds of doubt that you aren’t remembered, important, or the like, stand in your rightful position as a son or daughter of the Most High God, as a co-heir with Christ, and proclaim the love of Jesus over your life!
Take heart. You are held, kept, and remembered forever more by the only One whose mindfulness of you matters. His name is El Roi, and He is the God who sees you.
Lord, we thank you for new revelation of your love for us. We thank you for knowing us intimately. We thank you that your love covers us, guides us, fills us, and completes us. Father, we will not regard the love of man. We know that man will fail us. Rather, we cling to your love, which satisfies the deepest longing of our hearts. We worship you and honor you and give you glory for who you are in our lives. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
