Do We Fear Rejection?

 “… to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” – Eph. 1:6 nkjv.

Rejections we’ve experienced in the past may fuel our current fear of rejection, creating barriers to moving forward with holy boldness in various aspects of our lives. This fear brings with it a dread of defeat, hindering us from fulfilling what God has called us to do.

However, knowing and believing in the unconditional love and acceptance we find in Christ empowers us to walk in freedom. When the fear of rejection influences our decisions, our expectation of success diminishes, leading us to act out of fear rather than faith. Sometimes, we must decide despite knowing rejection is possible. Yet prioritizing our desire to please God above all dissipates this fear. God uses even our missteps to guide us in His ways.

It’s crucial to understand that forgiving what wasn’t done is just as vital as forgiving what was done — whether by others, ourselves, or even perceived from God. Forgiveness frees us from the shackles of our past, helps us live freely in the present, and erases fears about the future. In Christ, God not only forgives us but also fully accepts us. It’s an individual process as we progress, from glory to glory!
