What are you learning about in your life right now?
Lord Jesus, thank You for the reminder that You are intimately acquainted with rejection. You willingly and sacrificially lived a life marked with scorn, harsh judgment, and human misunderstanding. You, Lord, understand my heart better than anyone when I encounter the scorn and judgment of man. Thank You that I am not alone in the middle of it all.
Give me the wisdom to know Your will as You have revealed it in Your life-giving Word. Help me to trust You when Your way is difficult for me to accept. Give me the ability and strength to live as You want me to live.
Grant me the grace to walk through all situations and seasons empowered by Your Spirit. You are the One who has made me acceptable and lovable by Your grace alone. Help me to live my life praising You, unconcerned with receiving praise for myself. I no longer have to walk in fear of judgment because You were judged in my place. You were rejected that I could be brought into the family of God. Thank You that, regardless of the judgment of others, I am eternally accepted in Christ. Amen.
