Text for Today: Judges 11:1-11 “Gilead’s wife bore sons, and when his wife’s sons grew up, they drove Jephthah out..” (vs. 2).
Rejection and adversity can upgrade your life provided you know how to manage it when it comes. Because they push you, challenge you, and make you rise up to another level, like Jephthah in our text for today.
I had one highly experienced deliverance minister tell me that spirits of rejection are among some of the most common demons that he has encountered throughout his ministry, but was able to triumph over it with the help of God.
It’s vital to understand how rejection works, and how to apply the cure. Why does rejection wound us so deeply? Because it attacks the very person that we are.
It destroys our self-esteem, and attacks who we are and our purpose in life. This is why it is one of the most common tools the devil will use to destroy a person’s life.
God never wanted us to feel rejected or abandoned. He desires for you to know who you really are, and realize how deeply God loves, accepts, and appreciates you, so that you can live out the fullness of all what God has ordained you to be.
The sad fact is that the number of people who are affected by rejection is staggering. If we want to be all that God has created us to be, then overcoming rejection and its effects is vital and absolutely essential.
Rejection causes emotional wounds, which if not cleansed and released, will grow and fester into spiritual wounds (such as un-forgiveness, envy, blaming God, jealousy, etc.). The solution to the monster called rejection is a deep understanding of what the scriptures says about you and the reason for your creation.
You are a Champion!
