No More Rejection

Get About the Father's Business

"To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved." Ephesians 1:6

If God can touch and move a young girl like this to PREACH with such passion, then there is surely nothing He cannot do.  I haven't seen such common sense even amongst some adults.

Many of the problems weighing down the Body of Christ have to do with a spirit of rejection. Satan makes sure that most experience rejection at an early age with the intent of crippling them for most of their lives. Yet, through Jesus Christ we no longer have to be crippled...unless we choose to be.

It is our choice to believe the lies of Satan OR to believe the truths from God our Father. I don't care what people say, what circumstances imply, or what your "feelings" tell you. Whose report will you believe?

How long will you allow yourself to grovel on the ground in self-pity as the devil kicks more dirt in your face?  Determine to hold on to the truths of God and He will not only give you the strength to stand, but to overcome the enemy.

The spirit of rejection is actually a form of self-idolatry.  Everything always revolves around you, what others think of you, and how they are treating you.  Something doesn't have to exalt you to be an idol.  Anything that molds your character, personality, and behavior apart from the Spirit of God is an idol.

Rejection desires and is fed by only one thing: feelings of rejection.  So it perverts reality in your own mind so that you see everything in terms of someone rejecting or accepting you, even seeing rejection when it is not there.  It will keep you on a roller coaster of seeking for people to constantly validate your self-worth or continuously reaffirm that you are loved & accepted.   Most significantly, this spirit will affect your personality, causing you to perform attention-seeking behaviors that compel others to reject you.  

A child of God need not walk in rejection because we have been made accepted in the Beloved.  An inability to comprehend this and receive it in our hearts will cause you to have a defeated walk with the Lord.  Jesus died so that we could be overcomers, so that we can be victorious over the wares of the enemy.  So I ask again, which will you choose?  To believe the lies of the devil who seeks to destroy your very soul or to believe the truths of the God who loves you and gave His life for you?

Don't "feel" like God loves you?  Believe it anyway (Jeremiah 31:3).

Think others don't accept you?  Find solace in being accepted in the Beloved (Ephesians 1:6).

Seem like others (even family members) don't treat you the way they should?  Get used to it, and keep serving God in spite of (Psalm 27:10; Matthew 10:22, 34-38). 

Those closest to you have let you down?  Forgive them and keep on pressing (Matthew 18:21-22).

Why go 10, 20, 30, 40 years nursing old wounds and hurts when you can be made whole?  Don't wait for your emotions to get in line with the word of God before you believe; believe NOW!  Your feelings will line up with the word as you keep holding to the voice of truth - and refusing the lies of the enemy. 

The following message from Kayla Bramnick is about the spirit of rejection.  In order to really take the words in this video to heart, I have transcribed what was stated below.


The Holy Spirit showed me a long time ago that - and my dad said it - the problem that we have with young people and with everybody; the reason why there are so many death rates, abortions, AIDS...the reason why there are so many statistics and so many young people dying and going to Hell - and old people as well - is they don't have love from a father. They don't know who they are.

I was actually just talking about it, preaching about it to the youth group a while ago and I was asking them, "What is that one thing that everybody's looking for?"  I was sitting there for ten minutes.  They kept trying to come up with something and they could not answer it.

The Holy Spirit showed it to me that it is like a doughnut.  I know I sound childish, but I am going to use this anyway.  It's like a doughnut with an emptiness.  God created us with that emptiness so that we would go to Him.  Your Father & your mother will never be able to fill that.  Your husband or your wife will never be able to fill that.  Your friends will never be able to fill that.  God created that emptiness in your heart so that you could go to Him ultimately.

He made us with this passionate desire to fill it.  So we go crazy trying to fill it with money, drugs, fornication, friends, or with anything we can imagine.  And it leaves us emptier.  So many people don't know and have been hurt by their parents and so many people.  They are struggling, in pain, and they don't know what to do.  Even in the Body of Christ it is so sad how so many don't know their identity.  God created each of you with a purpose and with a destiny.

What are the three most important things you need to know?
  1. You have a Heavenly Father who loves you.

    No matter what you do or what you say.  Your father and mother may get mad.  They may kick you out of the house.  Your boyfriend will only like you if you do certain things with him.  Your Heavenly Father may be disappointed or hurt by you at times, but He will never stop loving you.  He is always by your side.  He will never leave you nor forsake you.  He's got your back.  You've got to know that.

    I don't care what you have been through, what you have seen, what you done...He loves you.  You have to get that from the word of God into your mind and then from your mind into your heart.  You have heard that.  How many times have you heard, "Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so."  Get it from the Bible to your heart! 

  2. You are His Son & Daughter.

    You are not His niece, nephew, or neighbor.  You are His son & daughter.  You have to get that revelation.  Once you receive Jesus into your heart, He automatically is your Heavenly Father.  He created you with a purpose & destiny.  You are here for a reason.  You are not just here because your father and mother loved each other so much.  You are here because God created you before the foundations of the world.  He created you with a purpose and reason to be alive because you are going to change nations and change lives.  You have to know that.

    You have a right to inheritance.  Did you hear what I said?  Everything that my Father has is mine.  Everything that Jesus did I can do because we have the same Father.  That doesn't mean I am equal to Christ, He is still the Savior.  But it means that everything He has I can have.  I can heal the sick, I can raise the dead, I can cast out demons!

  3. God loves you no matter what

    No matter what you do or say, no matter how far you go.  Don't say, "You don't know what I've done."  Paul said he was the worse.  He killed Christians.  He did everything.  But he said even though I was the worst person and I did the worst things, Christ still died for me and loved me.  Christ still showed up in Paul's life and look what the man of God became; an incredible Apostle who wrote most of the New Testament.  That means there is hope for you and me.

So many people say, "But Kayla, I don't have a father or mother who shows me love." You know what I tell them? "Jesus loves you so much that He wanted to raise you for Himself." Listen to this. He loves you so much that He didn't want to trust you to your father and mother alone because He knew that they would let you down. He wanted to raise you for Himself.

We serve such a great and faithful God.  He is always by your side.  He will never let you down. You've got to get and understand that.

That is why so many Christians lead a mopey life.  That is why you don't see you guys doing anything.  The young people some times are so depressed and the same little things still bother you.  That person says something and it still bothers you.  When you are betrayed and hurt, you need to rise above it.  "I am a son/daughter of God.  I don't have time for this.  I don't have time to deal with this because I am a daughter of the King."

For me, when I got that revelation, I never ever let anybody put me down.  And I have heard some really bad and nasty remarks about me.  I have been betrayed many times, hurt and let down by very close people, people that I trusted and gave my heart to.  The reason I was able to overcome it - and the way you will be able to overcome - is by knowing that your Heavenly Father loves you.

Who cares what others think?  Who cares if that person doesn't like me, that is their problem.  I am following Jesus.  My Daddy loves me.  He is proud of me.  I am doing what He wants.  If everybody else hates me that is fine, my God still loves me.  If the whole world hates me.

The Bible says you are going to be persecuted and hated.  There is always going to be hurt and rejection.  The world is always going to be full of pain.  But why am I still walking?  Why am I still standing?  Because I know my God has my back.  I know that my God is always by my side.  I know that He loves me.  I know that I am His child and as long as I have Him by my side nothing can ever bring me down.

You guys have to get that.  The Church of Christ has to get that.  The Bride of Christ, your Groom loves you.  What is so hard about that?  He loves you.

Alot of time what happens is that we like to feel reject because then people can feel badly for us.  People like to feel rejected because others are like, "Ohhhh, I am so sorry.  Ohhhh, it is okay.NO!  You are sons and daughters of God that means you are soldiers.  That means you are warriors in an army.

There is a world of lost people out there and they don't need you mopey and on the floor crying, "Oh my gosh, that person said they don't like me."  No, No, No!!!  What is an intercessor, what is a man or woman of God supposed to do?

They are supposed to get up!

They are supposed to stand up!

They are supposed to take a stand!

They are supposed to grab the souls from the enemy! 

They are supposed to do war!

They are supposed to be warriors of God!

They are supposed to be showing the world who is the Father!

They are supposed to reveal the love of God to the world!

And what are the Christians doing?  Crying saying, "Oh my gosh that person said this to me again.  Oh my gosh, the Pastor didn't say hi to me.  My father rejected me.  My mother wanted to abort me. What am I going to do?"  NO!! 

Get out of it.  Walk out of it.  "You don't know what they did to me.  You don't know what they said to me."  Shake it off and move on!  Cry if you have to, but shake it off and keep on going.  Don't let it keep you down because you have a purpose and a destiny.  Every time you hold that anger and pain in, it takes even longer for your destiny to be filled.


  1. Thank you for letting the Holy Spirit say this through you. I'm dealing with rejection as of now and reading this makes it more easier to cast my burdens on the Lord Jesus Christ and move forward as a child of God. Thank You. YHWH Bless.

  2. Wow!! God is AWESOME!! I am giving Him praise for this young lady. It is so encouraging to see that God's Bride is about ready to be released! He is uniting those that will stand and those that will move out to war. The great thing about this is that we are fighting from the side of Victory,that makes the war sweet!! We have already overcome and we need to start acting like it!! We have been raised from the dead and we are alive in Christ and NOTHING, but our ownselves, can stop us!!

    Let's GO!!!

    I hope to see everyone at the conference! :) Much Love!!

  3. Hi Anonymous,

    Rejection can be a serious stronghold. I have had to deal with that in life to. The saddest thing is how it keeps you wrapped up and trapped in yourself. That alone will keep you from truly giving/receiving the love of others and more importantly the love of God. It really must be dealt with and dismissed.

    It is like having a seeping, gaping wound that is bleeding profusely. Not only will it drain the life out of you, it will also try to drain the life out of those around you.

    One thing to remember is that no one owes us anything. Yes, we may have had hard times, been abused, and been mistreated. However, that just confirms that we are in a sinful world. We too were sinners and have hurt others, but as long as our eyes are on ourselves we can never see past our own hurts.

    If we could but understand that we are vessels created to pour out for others. As with all things, Jesus is our example. He was rejected by His own people, His own family, and even His disciples at the most inopportune time.

    Yet, He never became mopey about it. He never gave it even one thought because His mind was always on doing the Father's business. This is how we must be - and how we CAN be if we are led by the Spirit. The path to freedom is to get our minds off of ourselves.

    The first step is often to start casting down self-centered thoughts. When thoughts come trying to get you to feel sorry for yourself or speak words that are opposite of what God says, they must be disregarded. Do not dwell, but immediately dismiss them as lies.

    Also, pour out to others. A minister once said that our deliverance comes as we become a deliverer for others. I believe that is true.

    I pray that God do a quick work in your spirit to bring to life the words of truth in your heart as you set your face to do His will and be a blessing to others.

  4. Hi Stephanie,

    Is she not something??!! She had a revelation on something many adults do not yet have.

    It goes to show that moving on with God is not about age. You don't have to be up in years to help deliver others. You only need to be a sanctified vessel, devoted to Jesus Christ.

    I look forward to seeing you too sister!

  5. All I can say is WOW ...and Amen. Thanks once again latterdays, for allowing yourself to be a vessel God can use ...for our help. This word was for me!

  6. wow, all Glory goes to God. When I tell you this article was just on time. I just had a passing thought today, that I am allowing those feelings of rejection stop my progression in what I need to do for the Kingdom. Thank you Lord for even more confirmation, can't sweat the small stuff, thank you for being lead by the Holy Spirit and posting this!
