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, lucky you, but I am sure the majority of us have 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 a choice to make, we can either chase after empty promises or walk in the amazing plans that 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.
