The meaning of rejection & finding YOUR DOOR!

Understand this, beloved. God didn’t create you to chase those who reject you. In Matthew 7:6, Jesus said, “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” You know what this equates to? Know your worth! It doesn’t have anything to do with pride or ego, but everything to do with knowing your time is valuable, knowing who you are and what you deserve. If you’re continuously trying to prove your worth to people who just doesn’t see it, you’re setting yourself up for misery and heartbreak. This not only apply to love and relationships but life in general. You want to know what to do when people reject you? Respect the rejection. Don’t try to convince them to change their mind. Look to God. He’s redirecting you. Where one door closes, somewhere else another one opens. That rejection doesn’t mean give up. That rejection means, keep going. Understand, that the hand of God is leading you. There may be distractions along the way, there may be people you want to take with you, and you may even see what appears to be a better way, but it’s all an illusion. Stay focused. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). As followers of Christ, it’s important to know which battles to fight. If it’s more draining than productive, then put it in God’s hands and be still. Not everything we want is God’s will, but rest assured that His will for us is good. Many of the desires we have, He puts them there, but we must trust His guidance and not our feelings. Our feelings will tell us, we need to force people to see how valuable we are, but this simply isn’t true. The right people who are meant to be in your life will see it and the ones who aren’t supposed to be in your life, won’t. A hard truth is, oftentimes, we get tied up with the wrong people or situations that we weren’t supposed to be with or in, in the first place. Then when things don’t go as we planned, we try to force it. God doesn’t want you to worry yourself to death or become anxious about something that’s out of your control. You don’t have to force things to happen, God will make it happen, maybe not with that person, maybe not in that place, maybe not with that thing, but he has an unlimited amount of other options for getting you what you need. He may not come through your way, but He will come through His way. We must keep an open mind, because God is not limited to human capabilities. So, don’t be discouraged when a door is slammed in your face. Try another door, and another one, and another one, until you find YOUR DOOR. You’re facing those closed doors so that you learn to persevere. You’re also facing them to gain wisdom, knowledge and understanding. The rejection is training you how to walk by faith and not by sight. Hey, I know rejection doesn’t feel good, but it’s also building you. Growth doesn’t always feel good, because it moves us out of our comfort zone. If you’re facing any type of rejection, from a loved one, on the job, at church, dating, or wherever it may be, just keep going. Do not be discouraged. Whatever you’re seeking to accomplish, may not be easy, but with faith in God, all things are possible. Keep going until you get to, what God has for you. How to get past rejection? Keep on walking. A chapter may end, but that doesn’t mean your story is over. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and when you can’t see the way, remember that our God is a way maker. In Jesus name. Matthew 7:7, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
