As I bring this series to a close, I felt like it was appropriate to post a declaration instead of a lengthy blog. It only seems appropriate after we talked about the causes of rejection and how to overcome it though Christ that we declare God’s power over our lives. Remember that “rejection never has the final say. Rejection may be a delay or distraction or even a devastation for a season. But it’s never a final destination. [We are] destined for a love that can’t ever be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken. With You, Jesus, [we are] forever safe. [We are] forever accepted. [We are] forever held. Completely loved and always invited in” (Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst).
DECLARATION: (Written by Lysa TerKeurst in her book, Uninvited)
Whatever rejection has stolen from you, I declare that the deepest desperation you’ve experienced will lead to God’s greatest revelation in your life.
I declare that the Lord will give you relief from your unbelief.
He will restore you, redeem you, and write His story–His glorious story onto the pages of your life.
It will happen.
Doubt and defeat have no place in the sacred sanctuary of your heart.
Bitterness, resentment, and anger have no place in a life as beautiful as yours.
PRAYER: (Written by Lysa TerKeurst in her book, Uninvited)
From now on when misguided voices or the enemy himself tries to put you down with lies or pull you away from the truth or push you into anything that could derail your destiny, I pray that you will sense the mighty hands and heart of God…
- Lift you up with truth.
- Draw you close with His loving tenderness.
- And shame Satan back to hell with His resurrecting power.
