Acceptance and Love

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39 NRSV

Rejection from someone is common: a parent, friend, sibling, coworker, or significant other. The experience can create feelings of inadequacy, insecurity, and even anger.

But God promises nothing can come between us and Him. 

Imagine the worst thing you have done—the thing you are most ashamed of. Not even our deepest, most humiliating secrets can cause a loving God to reject us. We have security in knowing that no matter what, He will always accept us.

Now, imagine a time when you felt secure, comfortable, and worry free. You felt you could rest peacefully and know everything would be fine. The safest place we can imagine on earth does not compare to the acceptance and love we can feel from our Father in heaven.

We have the confidence that nothing can separate us from God’s love. Not our bad choices, other people, or anything in all creation. He will never reject, but always accept. He will never walk away, but always walk beside. He gives us security and safety. All He asks is that we trust and accept Him.

Let go of the rejections you have felt in this life, and put your trust in God’s promise of acceptance and love.
