How does rejection work in a person’s life?

(Donna Wright) I will just use our marriage for an example. We both had to come to a place where we decided that we loved each other, and therefore we would trust one another. That meant that I believed, and he believed, that I would never intentionally hurt him. That would not ever be my goal to hurt or lash out at him.

Now I might have something within me that might want to hurt him. The sin that dwells within might want to hurt him, but that’s not my heart.

(Henry Wright) Recently, I had one of these crispy-critters that was in my father that has been tagging along in me. It’s called iniquity, and I thought I had dealt with it. I had this thing, this thought, come up in me, and it spoke through me. The minute it came out of my mouth, I said, “Whoa”. It was directed to injure and I said, “Whoa that’s not me. That’s not my heart”. Immediately I took responsibility for something that wasn’t my heart. It wasn’t Henry. It wasn’t God, and that’s for sure because we’re able to do separation. We know our hearts and it’s a matter of trust so we can take responsibility. If we hadn’t practiced this, then I would be reeling her in for weeks because she would be rejected.

(Donna Wright) Let me say something about rejection. The possibility of someone rejecting me is very good, because even the clerk at the store may have a bad day, etc. Rejection is going to come. People are not always going to treat me in love. If I don’t have this iniquity in me, and if I don’t have this huge thing of rejection coming maybe down from my generations, then the rejection is going to bounce off. It’s not going to stay and injure me and hurt me.

(Henry Wright) There’s nothing within you that can connect with what’s in them to make a linking of repaying evil with evil.

15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man, but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

1 Thessalonians 5:15 KJV
