Unshackling the Fear of Rejection


The fear of being rejected is a terrible plague upon many people. Through life experiences causing us to fear rejection, we can lead a life shackled with false ideas. Because of our past experiences, we can live behind prison bars that are only a myth. As a Christian, you do not need to live in fear. You do not need to live in fear of rejection because if Christ is for you, who can be against you? Certainly, we all live in a real world. 
 
We want others to like us and accept us. However, we must understand Christ gives us a mighty armor of love shielding us from the rejection of the world. Besides, if the world, in all its sin and degradation does not want you and Christ does want you, how could you feel so bad about that? All of us must remember no matter how much the world comes against us or rejects us, Jesus is always for us.
-Cecilia Trent

I sought the LORD, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.

What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
