Rejection is an all-too-common human experience, but it can cause lasting emotional and spiritual wounds. It often leads to the horrible feeling that you don’t quite match up, that you’re forever falling short, or that you’ll never live up to others’ expectations. We’ve all faced rejection in one form or another—whether it was being picked last for a game at school, overlooked for a promotion at work, excluded from a group of friends, or snubbed by a family member. Sometimes the rejection runs even deeper. In our society, millions of people have experienced rejection as a result of divorce, poverty, parental neglect or lack of parental affection, child abuse, abandonment, public humiliation, being the child of an unwanted pregnancy, and failure at school or work.
Feelings of loneliness and inadequacy are hard to handle. The experience of rejection can be the root of many problems, such as difficulty with relationships, depression, rebellion, and substance abuse. In God’s Remedy for Rejection, internationally renowned author Derek Prince explains how God has made a way to heal your wounds and bring you into acceptance with Himself and the whole family of God.
Our remedy for rejection is in Jesus Christ, who faced the ultimate rejection. In bearing our sins, He was scorned by human beings—His own creation—and was temporarily separated from the Father in heaven. He knows how much rejection hurts. But because He faced that pain, we no longer need to. Jesus has planned for us a life of acceptance in His family and freedom from rejection. Discover how to apply God’s Remedy for Rejection to your heart, and leave the effects of rejection behind permanently. Let go of the shame so you can rest in Your heavenly Father’s embrace today.
