Freedom from Rejection

Freedom from Rejection
by Judy Hitson

Ephesians 1:6 NKJV to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

Are there times when you read the Bible that a verse seems to pop off the page with personal impact to your heart?

That’s what happened to me on a day I was struggling with rejection. This Bible verse brought me revelation and understanding after years of fearing death because of past sins.

How wonderful is God’s grace when we realize that His love and mercy is available for us. God gives us what we don’t deserve when we believe and receive His Word. That is His amazing grace.

“How could such a good girl be so bad?” These words repeatedly tormented my mind through the years until I came to know Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.

Thinking about this as I write, the words of a Christian song come to mind, “I am forgiven because You were forsaken.” When I researched this, I discovered these lyrics best describe being accepted in the Beloved. You may be familiar with “You Are My King (Amazing Love)” Here is the first stanza:

I’m forgiven because You were  forsaken
I’m accepted, You were condemned
And I’m alive and well, Your Spirit lives within me
Because You died and rose again

Wow! In times like this the Holy Spirit stuns me with revelation and understanding for what I know in my heart but am unable to verbalize. Yes, the full lyrics to this song say it best. I learned this song was written by Billy James Foote and recorded by several Christian artists. The most current I’ve been hearing on Christian radio, I believe is sung by the Newsboys.  

It was a miracle when acceptance overcame rejection in my life. I received new found freedom in Christ. The pain of rejection could have kept me in a state of guilt and shame. Praise God for setting me free by His Spirit. He revealed my need to rely on Him, not myself or others for acceptance.

Prayer: Thank You Father in heaven for grace and mercy in times of need. Thank You for Your acceptance in the Beloved. Thank You for mercy when we confess and forsake our sins. Thank You for the freedom from rejection. In Your name Jesus and by Your Spirit. Amen.
