Rejection Breeds Discouragment / LIFE HAPPENS

Today know that when life happens God will never forget or reject the needy.

Today's encouragement comes from Psalm 9 verse 18. "But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish." No matter what you have, are or will go through, God will not forget the rejected and the needy. Rejection comes when we are not accepted, when we are not believed or considered for something. Rejection breeds discouragement and refuses to accept us.  

Have you felt like that?

Stacy shares that as a 12-year-old girl, she experienced the rejection of her step-father, in the way he spoke to her. One day his angry words echoed, "What are you going to change about yourself?" Those were hard questions to answer, as she was not even 12. She felt humiliated, she needed assurance not shame, she needed love not rejection. Humiliated by his demeaning and critical words, she managed to say, "Maybe, not do so much homework?" Unsatisfied with her answer he grabbed the back of her neck and yelled, "You will sit and write out 100 things that you need to change about yourself!"

That was hard for her. She believed the lie that she was not good enough. That took root inside of her.

As life happened, she chose to look for love and comfort in the arms of people who would validate her. She felt ashamed and isolated because she never felt good enough, pretty enough or accepted.  She gained weight and felt that she did not have a voice to share how she felt, who could she trust?

Are you feeling rejected today?

God will not forget the needy. No matter what you have endured, no matter what you have experienced by the hands of others you can rest assured that there is hope for in you in your affliction. Jesus died to demonstrate God's desire to accept and not reject us. It is grace freely given so we can have life.

When life happens know that you're not alone that you need not be discouraged for God accepts you and loves you so much that he was willing to die for you. He will never forget or reject the needy.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
