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. – Luke 10:10-11

Rejection tries to cling to our feet to slow down our progress and hinder our walk of obedience. It happens when we least expect it. Because it catches us off guard, offense and anger can rise quickly. When we don’t have time to process it, it lingers and increases in its negative impact.

To reject rejection, we release it unto the Lord, trusting our election in Him. Our heart is to be pleasing unto God, not others; not to look for human approval or seek praises of men …but seek first the Lord and His Kingdom. When we know who we are in Christ, we don’t let others define us.

We can shake the dust off our feet, refusing to be offended. We wipe off rejection against our adversary and see his plans come to nothing. Instead of dust on our feet, we walk away with glory. We release the glory of the Lord everywhere our feet tread; and we never carry rejection with us to the next place. We move forward, from glory to glory!
