Day 32: Defeating Rejection: A Prophetic Soaking Experience
God is incredibly purposeful about the way He loves us. His intention is to make us confident & secure in His affection; so much so, that His love consumes every area of our lives.” — Graham Cooke
Everyone wants to be loved. Everyone wants to be accepted. . However, for some, rejection is more than an occasional occurrence. Rejection becomes deeply woven into their identities and becomes the theme of their existence.
It is not our job to get people to like us. God never intended for us to prove that we are enough for someone else. We must stop trying to win the favor and approval of uncaring people. You are accepted and beloved in God. Let’s allow God to open up new doors and new opportunities of love and friendship. BE FREE! (Isaiah 61:1-4)!“
The spirit of rejection makes it hard for us to move forward. It’s okay to acknowledge the hurt, but when we dwell on the pain it becomes a permanent hindrance. Pain is like a microphone, the more we hurt the louder it gets. However, no matter how much we hurt, God is our vindicator. The word vindicate means to show or prove something to be right or acceptable. It is no our job to get people to like us—it’s God’s. We are accepted by God. We are free from constantly striving to be all things to all people.
No matter what we have experienced. God is our ULTIMATE reality. His Word is our truth. When we absolutely believe this, we can rise above every circumstance with confidence, regardless of how others treat us.
Father God is continually thinking a never ending stream of happy thoughts about us.”
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
PRAY – Let’s build our spiritual endurance by praying at least an hour each day.
WORSHIP – In the presence of the Lord, release the people that you need to forgive. In worship, allow the Lord to bathe your wounds. You are accepted and beloved of God.
REMAIN FOCUSED – We are accomplishing a great work in the realm of the Spirit! Let us cancel every assignment of distraction or discouragement that would hinder our progress during this season of prayer.
FAST – Let’s turn off distractions in our lives. Some may chose to fast a meal. Some may chose to fast entertainment. Father God will show you how to draw closer to him during our season of prayer.
BIBLE – God speaks to us through His word. Let’s read our Bibles daily. There are many “read the bible in a year” plans on YouVersion to chose from.
REST – During this season of prayer, let us enter into God’s rest. God commands us to rest. We must rest with intention.
COMMAND PEACE – You cannot enter into rest without having peace. During this time of prayer, command peace all around you. Command peace within yourself. Settle the issues of your heart in the presence of the Lord. Let us lay down our worries before God in honor and adoration. Be at peace. Let God arise and our enemies be scattered.
