Kingdom On The 8's - The Apostles and Prophets Confronting Rejection - pt2 REJECTION “He has alienated my brothers from me; my acquaintances are completely estranged from me. My kinsmen have gone away, my friends have forgotten me” (Job 19:13-14). “Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I found none” (Psalm 69:20). “Don’t let anyone look down on you because of your youth; on the contrary, set the believers an example in your speech, behavior, love, trust and purity” (1 Timothy 4:12).
When you feel that you really don’t matter to others, the inner pain can be crippling. To avoid having to face the pain, this spirit induces you to compensate by just coping. You might avoid those whom you feel might bring you distress, even withholding affection from your spouse or parents. You may try to escape through chemical means to ease the pain. You might act without care or concern about how your actions may affect others around you. You may do acts of kindness in a desperate attempt to “earn” love and acceptance. Or, you may strive with all your might to achieve material success to prove your worth with a big house, expensive car or fine clothes — all to compensate for the fear that you won’t be found acceptable.
