The Spirit of Rejection

“Jesus asked them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘THE [very] STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED and THREW AWAY, HAS BECOME THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE ; THIS IS THE LORD’S DOING, AND IT IS MARVELOUS and WONDERFUL IN OUR EYES ’ ‭‭MATTHEW‬ ‭21:42‬ ‭AMP‬‬ 

The SPIRIT of REJECTION causes someone to feel lonely, rejected, and isolated. The Spirit of rejection is real and it leaves many deadly casualties along the pathway of life. People can feel rejected and ignored: by those who they look up to; by those in leadership roles; society; family members; spouses; or even by their very own children 

The Spirit of Rejection if not carefully dealt with can destroy one’s hope and dreams. 

If you find yourself constantly needing people’s approval and validation, apologizing repeatedly; trying to please others at the expense of your happiness – wake up and be kind to yourself acknowledging that the creepy spirit of rejection has taken up residence in your life. Rejection creates negative mental internal wars and many people never recover from it. They either just give up and go into isolation, or become overly accommodating to others.

Refuse to allow rejection to hold you hostage, gagged and bounded to it.  Jesus clearly and boldly declared, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘THE [very] STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED and THREW AWAY, HAS BECOME THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE ; THIS IS THE LORD’S DOING,  AND IT IS MARVELOUS and WONDERFUL IN OUR EYES.” ‭‭MATTHEW‬ ‭21:42‬ ‭AMP‬‬ 

If you have ever faced rejection know for a fact that God masters the art of using abandoned material to create cornerstones. There’s great potential in people who feel rejected or have been rejected. That PAIN can become your GAIN. Get up, brush the dust off and begin to run again. 

Don’t waste your best days sitting around waiting for approval of anyone. When you choose to live like that, you are not fulfilling your destiny and purpose. Refuse to become a victim of the Spirit of Rejection …believe in yourself. 

God is THE MASTERMIND of creating Cornerstones. He’s working behind the scenes of your story carefully removing the sting of the pain of rejection. 

The CORNERSTONE is worded with YOUR personal story. We were each BORN CHAMPIONS. One of God’s greatest mystery is producing personalized Cornerstones out of pain – turning it into a great story. 

The dictionary meaning of Cornerstone is, “An important quality or feature on which a particular thing depends or is based. It’s a stone that forms the base of a corner of a building, joining two walls.”


There’s great potential in each of us that God can use coming out of Rejection. It’s NOT over for you because someone did not see your potential. Your personalized Cornerstone is derived from your story, so wear it well. Let them wonder how you made it – then tell them.
