Davidisms - Rejection is God's Redirection

I know the feeling of rejection well. Most of us do.

But I’ve learned to view rejection through a biblical lens: Rejection is God’s redirection.

While rejection is painful, its purpose is planned. God often uses man’s rejection to redirect his people back into his will for their lives. God uses adversity, affliction and rejection to get our attention, so that we can hear his voice when he says, “This is the way; walk in it” (Is. 30:21).

Our new direction - born from rejection - points us toward a different place. A new calling. Purpose. Only God knows the plans he has for us. They are good plans with a future and a hope (Jer. 29:11).

Next time you experience rejection - and you will - pause and ponder the “why.” Could it be that God wants to give you something better? Bless you with abundance? Point you down a path exceedingly greater than anything you can imagine (Eph. 3:20)?

God interrupts our journey to put us on his path. A different direction. We may not see it for a while, but it’s there. And it’s good. Because he is good. Always.

It’s why we can say with a peaceful heart: Rejection is God’s redirection.
