No Such Thing As Rejection – Only Redirection

The following is an excerpt from an email I sent to a friend of mine ~~~>

~ I learned something good that I want to pass on. Given Ephesians 3:18-19,

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

~ God accepts us in ways that no human ever will. (In process: God’s depth of acceptance swallows up and cancels out our shallow human rejection.) So??? We can say that in the Christian life there is not such thing as rejection. There is no such thing as rejection – only redirection.

So you go through a job interview and get rejected… Guess what? From the God’s eye point of view, you did not get rejected. You just got redirected.

So you applied to get into XYZ University to study engineering or whatever… and the school rejected you. While that is a tough pill to swallow – from the God’s providential hand moving point of view – what the long term will indicate is that you were not really rejected. You were just redirected and that too redirected into a path more fitting with your desires – with what you like.

So… no such thing as rejection – just redirection.
