Our God is Prince of peace and love.
Here I am with few encouraging words for you all those who are called to build kingdom of God.
Many times as a Christian our beginning are not well and good, we live through a very rough time or we come under the influence of Dispiritedness which includes discouragement , rejections, undeserved corrections, disappointment, hurts, sadness, something which deals with pain, left out kind of situations, loneliness.
We deal with this area every day in our daily life , most of the time we continue carrying this along with us and try to handle it our own.
Today, we need to understand some basic things about you and yourself, meaning your relationship with you. Oh!! I trust I am rightly talking now!! Will come again in later part of this open discussion
Who you are, Word of God says,that you are the Image of God, (Genesis 1:27) and to spoil this image Devil would put full efforts to fetch it down.
Dispiritedness (Rejections, discouragements) has been a devil’s biggest weapon to draw down the image of God, pull down the growing Christians, pastors, leaders. believers.
Hope you all getting to the point 🙂 , Devil always ready to steal your Joy by hurting you while when you are growing stronger in the lord, serving his purpose, so delighted in his presence, he hates to see you happy.
All leaders,Pastors and believers, go through this phase, the questions is how can we overcome this Dispiritedness.
We necessitate to understand something important before drawing to a conclusion, most of the time people are hurting you because they are in hurt themselves or they are going through some rough time in their own life, we often forget to view it these ways.
When those rejections come upon you, we fail to face it because we don’t like someone talking not good about you or corrections coming again and once more when you are trying hard to come up with better things,
We fail to deal with problems or it all depend’s how you deal with problems, along with your response toward it.
When Dispiritedness fall upon you, most of us carry it deeper for long time and become so atrocious that you starting avoiding right things that was suppose you to be followed.
It gets so intense that you tend to take a step back from your responsibility, call of your ministry or start avoiding the person who brought Dispiritedness on you.
There is a catch here, you necessitate to understand this is where the door of darkness opens into your life such that you keep yourself away from God.
You give way to disappointment, broken spirit, anger, hatred, un-forgiveness, hurt, loneliness, where the bible talks about just opposite to these like love, patience, strong courageous,boldness so on. And you end up with deep rejections roots into your lifetime.
Getting back to what scripture talks about you, who you are.
It says, you are the chosen one before foundation, you are adopted son and daughter of god, holy blameless, (Eps 1:4, 5),
That what you are, you are beloved to God, who had accepted it already.
To come out of the area of rejections and Dispiritedness few actions we have to realize.
- If somebody has hurt you, forgive them, that brings you deliverance
- Pray for them Romans 12:14
- Don’t be angry, rejoice be glad be courageous,
- Praise the lord, Humble and be wise
- Don’t be stuck back in the same situation by keeping all old rejections in minds.
- Don’t worry about what other are telling you, when you know that Christ is in you. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Unless it’s really a corrective action and need to enhance growth of your spiritual life.
HOLY SPIRIT is spirit of truth and he will help you not to be deceived from any Dispiritedness
He will help you to renew your heart and mind, for we all know that Christ is hope of Glory and he is in you, his spirit is in us Colossian 3:10:
Remember only truth will set you free bible says “If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”-John 8:31-32
Don’t worry what people talk about you, your focus is Jesus, Luke 10:16/ Luke 20:17 it says when Christ is in you, he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects Him who sent Me and also The stone which the builders refused has become the chief cornerstone
Be of good cheers and courage, my friends for Christ is hope of Glory and he is in you. Be happy about it
