There are times when God will allow us to fall on our faces. In light of all circumstances, we believe that we are doing or have done what the Spirit of the Lord has commanded, only to find ourselves rejected by others. It is not a good feeling, but therefore there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. You need not to beat yourselves up because of being rejected by people. Your call is from the Holy Spirit of God not man. Obedience is better than sacrifice. It is better to have obeyed what you believe the Spirit of the Lord is speaking than to not have obeyed. You must try the Spirit to see whether it be of God. People reject what they do not understand, and or they reject because of what they have been taught to believe, and or because of fear. When we encounter rejection it is not for us to react, but it is for us to respond to being rejected by others in love. People have been spiritually wounded and are saved but not delivered, therefore, this is what has created a vacumm in the body of Christ. We are still living according to the world's standards and not allowing ourselves to trust God to prepare our hearts to receive wha it is that He has purposed and planned for our lives. Yes, pain is inevitable, because it is a part of the growing process to becoming spiritually mature. Therefore, you must stand in light of oppostion. IN HIS HOLY PRESENCE!!!
