Overcoming Rejection; Repulsion & Repeated Reverses.

Topic: Overcoming Rejection; Repulsion &  Repeated Reverses.

Text: 1 Samuel 16 vs 1.

I shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord and a royal diadem in the hand of my God. I shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall my land any more be termed Desolate: but I shall be called Hephzibah, and my land Beulah: for the Lord delights in me, and my land shall be married in Jesus' name. Amen.


One of the most fearful verses of the scripture is contained in 1 Samuel 16 vs 1. It goes thus: "And the Lord said unto Samuel, How long wit thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons". This scripture is fearful because the Lord of heaven and earth said that He had rejected Saul as a king but had appointed someone( David) in his stead. May the Lord never reject you in Jesus' name.

Rejection is not a beautiful word. It means putting away or throwing down. Repulsion is getting irritated or disgusted by something or someone while repeated reverses are recurring  setbacks or difficulties or frustration, without any plausible reason. All these scenarios are spiritual issues. They bite more than their dictionary descriptions and are at work in the lives of many children of God. They are works of the devil that our Lord Jesus Christ came to destroy( 1 John 3 vs 8).

How can we detect the evils of these works of darkness? 1. When good experiences like marriage, career, ministry, business, etc. suddenly become a nightmare. 2. When opportunities and favours become elusive. 3. When promises are not fulfilled for a long time, without any tangible reason. 4. When a benefactor suddenly becomes an accuser and a complainer. 5. When the flow of help suddenly cease, without any sensible reason.

6. When resources are depleting and nothing is coming as an increase. 7. When appetite for prayers and spiritual exercise like fasting and vigil is low. 8. When revelation about yourself, through God or any of His servants is withheld. 9. When you are enjoying something you know is unacceptable to God and you are not feeling bad about it. 10. When friends, business partners, colleagues and other close associates are no longer confiding in you, without any reason. 11. When you are lonely in marriage and abandoned in challenges.

David experienced some of these unsavory experiences. In Psalm 118 vs 10-13, he bemoaned the hostility he suffered as a result of rejection and repulsion and comforted himself with the help he received from God. Satan and his agents are behind all these evil works. Most times, marks are put on the bodies of their victims.   This makes it difficult for such victims to be favoured by anyone. Some people cannot sustain good friendship or relationship for long. Why? They easily get irritated by those close to them.

It is not the plan of God for any of His children to suffer any setback. Attacks of the enemy are behind reverses that anyone may be suffering. How can a Prince be walking barefooted? This is a work of the enemy. This will no longer continue in Jesus' name. As you pray today, the good Lord of heaven and earth will appear to you and break the jinx of repulsion and rejection in your life in Jesus' name. God will pour His oil of gladness upon you and you will be victorious in Jesus' name. Shalom.
