The Lord told the disciples that when they go into a city to heal the sick, and are rejected, to shake the dust off their feet. He said the Kingdom would come near them anyway. In other words, rejection cannot hinder the release of what comes from God. It is manifested, whether it is received or not. When it’s not received, it hinders people from walking in what God brings to them, but it never diminishes the reality of God.
When the spirit of rejection moves through others to us, we feel inadequate, inferior and insecure. It’s our adversary, satan, who is the author of such lies. Through his lies, fueled with fear, he tempts us to believe we are rejected by God and other people. The spirit of antichrist comes against the truth. The truth is: we are accepted in the beloved, Jesus the Christ. All that pertains to the Lord is released through us, everywhere we go and in whatever we do. God loves us, is for us, and through Christ, we can do all things.
In and through Christ, we are secure and able. Others might refuse to accept who Christ is, but we submit to who He is. We accept who we are in Him. We do not hesitate to allow the Holy Spirit to move through us. We shake the dust off our feet because our feet carry His glory with every step. We do not let rejection shake us; we shake it off, from glory to glory!
Luke 10:8-11 “Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this that the kingdom of God has come near you.’ ”
