Just recently the eyes of my heart were enlightened and I gained understanding that I was not rejected by that person or those persons but I was protected by my heavenly father. Have you ever been discouraged by someone or let down or had a dream fall to ashes? If you haven’t, luck you, but I am sure the majority of us has experienced rejection or discouragement some where down the line.
Well I had finally got a breakthrough the other day that I had needed for so long. I was driving down the road talking to God and I asked him to show me how to accept a particular situation that had happened with a guy I was talking to. Basically in a nut shell, I dated this guy who I had thought was pretty great while ignoring a couple of red flags. When I asked God to show me how to accept the rejection, he started speaking to me, “Courtney suppose one of your parents saw something that would affect you in a negative way but they didn’t say or do anything about it”. He then said “I know what lies ahead, and I know this man and what your future would be like with him, and I know the heartbreak you will go through if you would’ve stayed with him”. Praise God! Right then I felt a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. He knows every thing and all things! Nothing is a surprise to him. He is my heavenly Father doing his heavenly duties, protecting me and loving me in a way I have never experienced. He wants to do the same for all of us but we have to choose. We can either chase after empty promises or walk in the amazing plans our daddy Jesus has for us. WALK IN VICTORY!
Isaiah 41:10 NLT
10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
