Beloved is My Name, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Rejection is pain. Rejection is painful. Rejection is a real emotion. 

It hurts to be rejected, whether it be from your best friend or a family member. All of us will experience rejection at some point in our lives (whether Christian or non-Christian). I remember when I experienced rejection from my ex-friends from college. I felt very hurt and deeply wounded. It took me one year to grieve the loss of losing my best friends not just because the pain was so deep, but because I was friends with them for five years.

Even though it hurt me to be rejected by my two ex-friends from college, this experience drew me even closer to the Lord. This is because God can use our deepest emotional wounds to draw us closer to him. So, I decided to pray to God. I asked God:

Q: Me: What is the root cause of the rejection I feel?

A: God: Fear.

After spending a lot of time with the Lord in prayer, He allowed me to identify that the root cause of the rejection that I feel is because of my fear of being rejected. You see, beloved, this is because rejected people push people away. This can happen to you without you realizing that it is happening. I even began to notice that this was a cycle that I was experiencing, particularly with my church friends and family. Because I was rejected by my ex-friends, I pushed my church friends and family away from me. Those closest to me saw that there was a problem, but I refused to acknowledge the problem.

It was then that Father God brought me to a turning point: He brought me to a point where I had no one to comfort me or to console me from the rejection that I felt. I had to bring the rejection that I felt to the feet of Jesus Christ and His cross……And surrender it all to Him.

Yes, I surrendered rejection to Him. I gave up that demonic spirit called rejection to Father God. I nailed rejection to the cross. Rejection is not the heart of Jesus Christ. I am accepted by my Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Rejection is not my name. Beloved is my name. Cherished is my name. Adored is my name. Precious is my name because Jesus paid it all for me at the cross.

I am loved by my Abba. I am His princess by my Most High God. He accepts me into His Kingdom because He is Jehovah. Rejection is not my name because God erased that from all of me with His cleansing blood. 

~”But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”~Isaiah 53:5, .KJV~

Jesus was rejected by the world, but He gave His life for me so that I could receive approval from Him. My approval does not come from my ex-friends. My approval comes from my Most High God. He will always accept me because He already accepted me into His Kingdom 2,000 years ago at the cross.

At the cross, rejection lost its power over me. At the cross, rejection lost its sting. At the cross, rejection was nailed by the hand of God. At the cross, rejection has no place for me as God’s child. At the cross, rejection died. At the cross, Jesus triumphed over rejection and rose: victorious for me. I can now walk in victory because by His stripes, I am healed, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I am free. 

~”Where, O death, is your victory? Where O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is in the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”~1 Corinthians 15:55, NIV~

I now want to pray for the feelings of rejection that you may be feeling, dear reader. Let us pray!:

I Am Brave, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Fear.

I am fearful of many things. I tremble in fear at times. I go into my bedroom and cry over all of my fears that plague me, which in turn has had a negative effect on my self-esteem and how I see myself. Every time that I feel fear, I pray. I pray in order to fight off the fears that face me so that I have no fear of the future and whatever comes. This is because I know that whatever comes, fear will not control on my life anymore.

~”For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”~2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV~

Today, I have decided to not give into fear. I had a choice to make: I could either allow fear to control my thought patterns and how I think or I can take the thought of fear captive to the Lord and allow for Him to deal with it in the way that He wants to handle this negative emotion. Fear has run my life for far too long, pushing away my friends and family and holding me in bondage to myself and the devil.

Even though I could go back to the old way that I used to think (which were most of the times thought patterns related to fear), this would be a hindrance in my walk with Lord because it would hinder me from walking in the victory that my Father bestowed upon me, as His adopted daughter.

I am not afraid. I am unafraid. I am not frightful. I am brave. I am not fear. I am fearless, in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is because God gave me, His daughter, a spirit of power to put fear to death, unconditional love for people of all different walks of life, and a sound mind (meaning I can control the thoughts that I think and the words that I speak over my life with unshakable confidence).

This means that in this moment, I am not going back. I won’t go back. I am never ever going back because God meant for me to live out and walk out in victory all of the time. Therefore, I have no reason to surrender my life or give me up to fear. Fear has no control over my life anymore. I am brave by the power of the Holy Spirit. I am brave for Jesus Christ. I am brave by the saving grace of my Heavenly Father. I am brave, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”~John 9:62, NIV~

I thank God for freeing me today. I thank God for delivering my soul from fear. I thank God for liberating me from that controlling and demonic spirit called fear. I thank God for freeing me from the control that fear had over my life. I have a spirit of self-control, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, I think brave thoughts instead of fearful thoughts as I give up fear at the feet of my King.

I don’t do fear. I don’t do fear because I am not fear. I am brave for my friends. I am brave for my family. Fear no longer controls my soul. I won’t let it dictate my life. The power of the Holy Spirit broke this thought free from me today as I took it captive to the Lord. Therefore, I am free because my Deliverer set me free from fear today, in the Name of Jesus Christ. THANK YOU JESUS! HALLELUJAH!

I now want to take the moment to pray for you, dear reader, and any thoughts of fear that you may be struggling with today. Let us pray!:

Dear God,

Thank You for every reader, who opened up this blog post and read it. Thank You that by the power of Your Holy Spirit that You healed the reader, who needed to be healed the most. Thank You for delivering that reader from fear, who needed to be experience deliverance today. I pray that every reader will share it not just because of my testimony, but because that person is convicted by the power of Your Holy Spirit for his or her friend or his or her family member to experience deliverance from fear today. May compassion for those in the world who need to experience deliverance from fear thrive in this world. May the hearts of those who see a dear loved one, who is living in fear, be broken so that he or she will know of ways that he or she can pray for victory for that loved one. May that person know that fear has no place in a child of You, O Most High God, because You drove it out of every reader already. I pray the blood of Jesus over each reader today as he or she seeks You and Your Kingdom first for deliverance from fear. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

God bless you, dear reader. Go in peace!

I Live Because He Lives, in the Name of Jesus Christ

“~Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”~Proverbs 31:30, NIV~

Be still and go in peace. 

~”Go in peace.”~2 Kings 5:19, ESV~

Throughout life, I have learned many valuable life lessons. I have learned that people will disappoint you. Material things do not last. And even money cannot fill the void of the human soul, regardless of how much money that you spend or how much money that you have in your checking account.

My relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is what matters the most because He is my peace. He gives me peace in the good times. He provides me peace in the bad times. He instills within me a peace that is incomprehensible to the human mind and soul that gives me a reason to live this life. I live because He lives, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

For me, Godly peace is what allows me to forgive those that have hurt me in the past. Godly peace is what allows me to be able to look at someone in the face without harboring harsh feelings towards them. Godly peace is what gives me authority to triumph over unrest in this world. I live because of this Godly peace that I experience.

Godly peace allows me to experience all of my life to the fullest. Godly peace allows me to be able to unconditionally love————at a distance and to a person’s face. Godly peace is what overcomes doubt, fear, mental illness, and other unfounded phobias. Godly peace is still. Godly peace reigns within me.

~”Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.”~Hebrews 4:1, KJV~

At 27 years old, I have gone through many valleys. I have climbed many mountaintops. I have victory every time because of the Godly peace that is still within my soul. I am not emotionally broken because of this Godly peace that is within me. I am emotionally strong and can do ALL THINGS in Christ because of this Godly peace that is within me.

~”I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”~Philippians 4:13, KJV~

As I search deep within myself, I have found that this Godly peace that I feel is what surpasses my understanding of what has happened in the past. Even though I cannot change the past, I can live in the present and face the future because my heart and my mind is guarded in the peace that I experience in Christ Jesus. 

~”She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.”~Proverbs 31:25, NIV~

This Godly peace is what provides me great joy too. I have Godly joy because of this Godly peace that I experience, which makes me smile every time that I contemplate how unspeakable that it is. I can close my eyes and meditate on the Truths of what the Word of God states. The Word of the Lord is Godly peace. It is Heavenly and serene. 🙂

~”Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 4:6-7, KJV~

Let us pray, dear reader:

Dear God,

Thank You that You are peace. Thank You that You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die for the sins of this world and to resurrect from the grave so that people of every tribe, tongue, and nation, can experience Your peace. Allow each reader to know that he or she is loved because of this gift of peace that Your Son, Jesus gives. Allow each reader to experience Your peace as Your hand draws them close to You. May each reader see that Your peace is everlasting and is what allows them to conquer sin and death because of this peace that You provided Jesus when He went to the cross. Nail the sins of each reader to the cross so that he or she can experience Your peace today. Give each reader victory today! I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

God bless You, dear reader! Go in peace!
