Summary: Lord, help me understand me. Have we ever considered THE POWER OF FEAR when it comes to REJECTION? How do we handle rejection? You can use this rejection to become a better person!

THE AURA OF REJECTION, ( LORD HELP ME UNDERSTAND ME?)

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

TEXT: Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

We live in a world that LOVES TO WIN, and if you lose something is wrong with the coach. FIRE THE COACH! Then what? You still lose?

I read a study of a losing football team in an upscale neighborhood. They fired the coach? The new coach came with great promise. They fired him after another losing season. A new coach came on board, guess what? They lost the first 3 games. The players when on “STRIKE.” They got their mom’s to go to the school board meetings and fuss and complain?

The players made signs and said the new coach called them lazy and was trying to make them do pushups, run, eat properly, and lift weights. The players thought this was mean and cruel and their mommy’s agreed. They had the TV station come out with the camera and record their losing attitudes.

I felt so sorry for the coaches. They were good, capable men and this hurt the fired coaches and set them and their families back. The rejected coaches just could not get the school system to see the bigger picture. Let us reject the coaches and REFUSE TO SEE, 4 BAD COACHES IN A ROW? Maybe the rejection of the parents and the team had more to do with losing?

WE CAN DEVELOP A LOSING ATTITUDE AND IGNORE THE REAL ISSUES. THERE IS GREAT POWER IN REJECTING AUTHORITY. REJECTION TENDS TO BLAME OTHERS FOR “WHERE WE ARE?” By the way where are you? How did we get here?

3 WORDS TO CONSIDER…

*AURA (OR-a)

An energy field that is held to emanate (come out of) from a living being.

A subtle sense,

The feeling that seems to come from a person, place or thing.

*FEAR:

An unpleasant emotion caused by being aware of danger. To be afraid of something or someone.

To expect, or worry about. Alarm.

*REJECT, REJECTION:

To refuse to believe, accept or consider. To decide not to do. To refuse to allow.

Disapprove, negative, withhold. Something that is not GOOD ENOUGH.

To throw away, to throw out.

THERE IS POWER IN FEAR…

RUMINATE: PONDER DO WE THINK WITH OUR HEART OR OUR HEAD?

I think maybe both?

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

FEAR IS A POISON THAT BREEDS AN AURA OF ANGER AND NEGATIVITY THAT WE CARRY HIDDEN DEEP WITH THE HEAD AND THE HEART.

This lesson I want us to RUMINATE ON THE POWER OF THE FEAR OF REJECTION.

WE MUST LLET THE HOLY SPIRIT OPEN THE EYES OF OUR HEART AND REVEAL TO US THE THINGS WHICH OUR ENEMY HAD BURIED IN OUR HEARTS.

HURT PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE.

REJECTED PEOPLE REJECT PEOPLE.

These are the facts of daily life. The fear of rejection is killing good people.

DO WE KNOW THAT THE POWER OF REJECTION IS TERRIBLE? WOUNDED AND DYING???

BUT LET US RUMINATE THE FACTS THAT THE FEAR OF REJECTION IS CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT THAT IS WE CAN ACCEPT AS THE NORM.

Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

Proverbs 29:25 (MSG) The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in GOD protects you from that.

We are triune: --- SPIRIT--- SOUL--- BODY

We are 1. Physical 2. Mental 3. Emotional 4. SPIRITUAL.

We tend to focus on the TEMPORAL. GOD DESIRES US TO FOCUS ON THE ETERNAL.

ALL HUMANS GREAT AND SMALL FEAR REJECTION… WE NEVER DESIRE TO LOSE FACE? REJECTED?

Remember when the beautiful lady danced before the King? She sought her BITTER MOTHER’S OPINION on what to ask of the King? She could have had anything up to ½ the Kingdom.

Mark 6:25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist. 26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

It appears the King wanted to SAVE FACE in front of his court and his girlfriend than to be rejected in front of people?

If he rejected the girls request, he FEARED REJECTION?

I HAVE ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO EXPOSE WHY WE EMIT THE AURA OF REJECTION?
