Bible Verses To Break The Spirit Of Rejection

Psalm 18:40
Psalm 144:1

Warfare Prayer

Prayer is a very powerful weapon in the fight against rejection. Prayer brings you into the presence of God. Prayer opens up your spirit to hear the truth of your acceptance through Christ.

Prayer builds up your inner man. Psalm 144:1 is a prayer you should consistently pray over your life, so that you will be able to fight against spiritual opposition that comes against your life. This verse reads in its entirety, “Blessed be the Lord my strength, who prepares my hands for war, and my fingers to fight.” Confess, believe, and count on God to give you the strategy to gain victory over rejection.

Another one of the most inspirational psalms when it comes to spiritual warfare is Psalm 18. Praying some of the key verses in this chapter will build your faith to see great deliverance in your life. For example, verse 19 says that deliverance brings us into a large or broad place.

Sometimes the enemy wants to confine, restrict, and limit us. But through spiritual warfare we can break the limitations. We can ask God to deliver us from demons that block and obstruct our way so that we can come into a larger place.

Rejection is one of the demons that make it hard for us to move to the next level in our lives. But the Lord has given you the necks of your enemies, and you will destroy them in His name.

rebuke the spirit of rejection

Rejection comes to us all at one point or the other in our lives. It is inevitable.

You cannot live on the earth and not experience rejection, which can come from anybody, usually from loved ones and people you have confidence in. It may come from parents, children, spouse, employer, family members, potential business sponsors or partners, loved ones, friends or colleagues.

“When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.” Psalm 27:10

Rejection usually makes you feel unworthy, incapable and inferior. And that’s exactly how Satan wants it!

The devil knows very well that the feeling of rejection can lead to depression, so he usually pumps up that ‘feeling’ of rejection by bombarding you with negative thoughts. But you can stand up against it, overcome it and trample it all under your feet!

The rejected ones who became champions

In the history of the world, there are thousands upon thousands of people who were rejected at certain seasons in their lives but ended up becoming champions by the hand of the Almighty. Let’s look at a few of them in Scriptures.

1) Jesus, the Son of God.

“He is despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.” Isaiah 53:3

That is what the Son of God got for coming in bodily form to die for all the sins of humanity. He was rejected by His own people.

They despised Him, dishonored Him, abused Him, spat at Him, conspired against Him, arrested Him, humiliated Him and eventually crucified Him.

“He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own did not receive Him.” John 1:10,11

To make it worse, His own siblings did not believe in Him. They scoffed at Him, laughed at Him behind His back and made jest of Him. ‘...for even His brothers did not believe in Him.’ (See John 7:1-5).

Destined to be the Savior of the world, the religious and political leaders of His day said He was a fraud. They put Him to a painful death by crucifixion.

Little did they know that all that was being done against Him was actually pushing Him toward His destiny! Ignorantly, they helped!

The devil and the people cooperating with him do not know they are ignorantly helping to push you toward your destiny. Remain and abide in Christ!

God’s power raised up Jesus from the grave on the third day. He eventually ascended to heaven in bodily form.

He is now seated at the right hand of the Father. Angels and rulers and authorities having been made subject to Him. The highest and most powerful name in all creation given to Him.

The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone” (See Psalm 118:22, 1 Peter 2:7). Now He has become the champion of the whole realm of God’s creation! (See Revelation 5:12-14.)

2) Joseph, the steward-prisoner-governor.

He had great dreams and potentials, but his brothers would have none of it. Their envy of him led to them rejecting him and selling him off to the slave market.

God took over and orchestrated circumstances that landed Joseph in his destiny… the throne of Egypt! He became the savior of the entire house of Jacob. (See Genesis 37, 39, 40, 41, 42)

There are many other examples in Scriptures of people who rose to become champions, and since they did, you can too. And you will!

What to do to overcome rejection

1) Forgive all those who rejected you.

“Then Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.’” Luke 23:34

You need to understand that at times, Satan can influence people in order to bring rejection your way. You must not harbor unforgiveness toward them. Unforgiveness is a trap of the devil. It is detrimental and dangerous for you to keep what belongs to your chief enemy. (See Genesis 45:3-8)

2) Anchor your confidence in Jesus.

“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.” Hebrews 10:35

Make up your mind, once for all, that you will no longer look to humans as the sole directors, influencers and architects of your destiny. Humans are flawed and so imperfect.

Your most-beloved person can yield to Satan to reject and discourage you. Only Jesus can perfectly love you without rejecting, despising and backstabbing you!

3) Don’t accept those feelings of rejection.

“Isaac said to Jacob, ‘Please come near, that I may feel you, my son, whether you’re really my son Esau or not.’” Genesis 27:21

Feelings are often deceptive and cannot be depended upon! Isaac was deceived because he based his judgement on his feelings.

The devil is a genius at casting negative feelings, of hurt, rejection and pain, on people. But you have an option. You can resist the devil and tell him to go away with those feelings, and he will… when you speak in Jesus’ name!

Engaging a divine strategy for victory

Be full of the Holy Spirit and Joy.

“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit.” Ephesians 5:18

Alcohol and drugs are not the solutions you need. Rather than making you better, they make you feel worse. They leave you high and dry and open to the devil. What you really need is to be filled with God’s Spirit!

I tell you, there’s no better Comforter, Encourager, Strengthener and Helper than God! As you’re filled with the Holy Spirit, seek time alone with Him, and quietly begin to worship Him, even as you pray in other tongues.

Believe me, Satan with his negative feelings will flee from you!

“Do not despair, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10  

There is strength and victory in joy. Joy itself is the preferred atmosphere of the Holy Spirit. Rejoice in Christ Jesus. Listen to good Christian music and let the words fill your heart. As you do these, watch as the God of peace crushes Satan under your feet!
