Reject rejection…

I was having a conversation with someone over the weekend and suddenly the Lord gave me this insight, “Reject rejection”…

At the end of the day by choosing to reject rejection we choose unconditional love towards whoever it is who we are speaking with…

Whether their rejection is real or imagined we are feeling it and by choosing – in the Holy Spirit – as He brings it naturally to our hearts – to reject this rejection and keep loving them we establish a foundation which is irresistible in their lives…

Sometimes part of rejecting rejection isn’t to fight it…

Not to fight back, “No, I’m not thinking that way about you, I’m thinking this way”…

It’s tempting to put them right – or establish our innocence or genuineness…

But to stand back and to let them reject us – think of us whatever they want to but forgive them on the inside and love them back on the inside without having to say a word…

To speak when the Lord calls us to speak but otherwise to be silent even when that means that we are misunderstood or even maligned…

That is hard but that is unconditional love…

The beloved in Song of Solomon came knocking at His beloveds door – she was in bed and didn’t want to get up to open for him – he thrust his hand through the latch to open which aroused her heart for him – but he didn’t ‘break and enter’ – he didn’t force himself – he went ‘so far’ and then he withdrew…

When she went looking for him she saw just how much she loved him – and she also saw his heart – she knew where he would be – Christ and His Church…

But also us and our brothers and sisters in the Lord or us and those who don’t know the Lord…

We all have to learn this lesson – so far and then accept their rejection (on the outside) but never reject them (on the inside) but wait for them to see our hearts – they know in their hearts where we’ll be (as the beloved did) and where to find us – let them then come to us…

We wait – as Christ does – He is standing outside the door of His Churches heart and He is knocking – He thrusts His Hand through the latch dripping with myrrh but His Church has to rouse Herself to open to Him…

He will not force Himself on us…

And neither must we…

This is impossible for the flesh…

Only God can achieve this…

Only Unconditional Love…

Only Unconditional Love can put ourselves into the other persons shoes and wait for them – even when we do not understand…

To wait…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
