Rejections in our past may contribute to our fear of rejection today. This can hinder us from moving forward with holy boldness in many areas of our lives. This fear will also hinder us from doing what the Lord has called us to do.
Knowing and believing the unconditional love and acceptance we have in Christ enables us to walk with freedom and holy boldness. When fear of rejection is attached to our decision making, our expectation of success is diminished. We then move by fear and not by faith. A decision may have to be made with the understanding that we may be rejected. However, when we seek to please God above all else, all fear is removed. Even the mistakes we make are used by God to teach us His ways.
Forgiving what was not done, is as important as forgiving what was done: by others, ourselves or even God. Forgiveness frees us from our past, enables us to remain free in the present and removes any fear of tomorrow. We are forgiven and accepted in the Lord. It’s an individual process as we progress, from glory to glory!
Ephesians 1:6 “… to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.”
