Christian rejection dating
It is sort of like having a million dollars in the bank and choosing to starve to death because we don't use that money to buy food.
Question: "How can I overcome feelings of rejection?" Answer: We are all prone to disappointment and feelings of rejection, and that is especially true in the aftermath of a broken relationship.However, as born-again believers we have a resource in God's Word that can bring comfort and clarity to the situation. "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.One person's rejection does not mean we are unlovable. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.We are bound to be hurt, and we are bound to be disappointed, for we live in a fallen world.What we choose to do with that hurt and disappointment will either allow us to grow stronger in our walk with the Lord or it will mean that we are walking wounded. God makes it possible for us to walk through the disappointments in life with a knowledge that His provision for us works.
His grace and His comfort are ours as we rest in Him.
Every born-again child of God has all of these provisions and blessings in Christ, but we have to choose to utilize them.
But we can allow that one rejection to determine how we feel and allow that feeling to color our idea of who we are, or we can choose to put that behind us and move forward on the basis of something that is far more lasting. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves" (Ephesians 1:3-6).
Even though we do not deserve it nor can we earn it (Ephesians 2:8-9), the Lord Jesus Christ has blessed us with every spiritual blessing and has made us accepted in Him.
This acceptance is His gift of grace, and it transcends any and all other "feelings" we may have because it is not based on "hope so" but on "know so." We know that this is true because God's Word tells us, and as we appropriate this truth by faith, it becomes reality in our hearts and lives.
Walking by our feelings is like walking through the world with our heart on our sleeve.
