Water those Who Water You, Not Disrespect You


I had a really intense conversation with my professor and he said rejection is often seen as a negative experience, something that causes pain and disappointment. However, what if I told you that rejection is actually a form of protection from God? This may sound counterintuitive at first, but when we delve deeper into the concept, we can see that rejection can actually be a blessing in disguise.


When we face rejection, whether it be in relationships, job opportunities, or other aspects of our lives, it can be easy to feel discouraged and defeated. We may question our worth and abilities, wondering why we were not chosen or accepted. However, what we fail to realize is that rejection is often a sign that something better is on the horizon.


God has a plan for each and every one of us, and sometimes that plan involves being rejected from certain paths in order to lead us to the right one. It may be difficult to see in the moment, but rejection can be a form of divine intervention, guiding us towards a better future that we may not have been able to see on our own. Even if it's disrespect from someone we love or care for this will open our eyes to who may not be healthy in our space.


In the Bible, there are numerous examples of rejection leading to protection and ultimately, blessings. Joseph was rejected by his brothers and sold into slavery, but it was through this rejection that he eventually became a powerful leader in Egypt. Similarly, David was rejected by his own family and overlooked as a potential king, but it was through this rejection that he was able to prove himself and eventually become one of the greatest kings in Israel's history.


Rejection can also serve as a form of protection from harm or danger. We may not always understand why we are being rejected in the moment, but looking back, we can often see that it was for our own good. Perhaps that job opportunity we were so set on would have led us down a path of unhappiness, or that relationship we were hoping for would have ended in heartbreak. God knows what is best for us, even when we cannot see it ourselves.


These are blessings that we may not have been able to see on our own. Instead of dwelling on the pain of rejection, we should trust in God's plan for us and have faith that everything happens for a reason. Rejection is not the end, but rather a stepping stone towards something greater. See you at the top.
