In Touch Devotional 19 March 2022 | Charles Stanley | Freedom From Self-Rejection
TOPIC: Freedom From Self-Rejection
No matter how often we battle self-rejection, we are always accepted by God.
Many people, even in the church, suffer from self-rejection. This type of thought pattern can persist for years, sabotaging the truth about who we are in Christ and how valuable we are to our heavenly Father. When such a lie reigns in our mind, feelings of worthlessness follow.
If you’ve received Jesus Christ as Savior, you’re accepted by God—based not on your performance but on Christ’s substitutionary atoning death on your behalf. This is the truth that should govern your self-perception. But eliminating wrong patterns of thought and behavior takes more than simply knowing why you’re accepted. To develop a healthier outlook, you must saturate yourself with God’s Word so the Holy Spirit can renew your mind with truth and reveal any unbiblical thinking.
Let’s start with a few foundational principles from Scripture. As believers, we belong to God’s family (Romans 8:15-17). We are so loved by Him that He sent His Son to rescue us from sin and condemnation (John 3:16). And we’re empowered by His indwelling Spirit to successfully live as God desires—in righteousness, holiness, and truth (Galatians 5:16-25).
If you’ll allow these three facts to permeate your being, over time your self-perception will change, and appropriate feelings will eventually follow.
