Rejection is a difficult pill to swallow, but God is faithful. Rejection does not equate inadequate. Inadequacies are mere places for God to shine; for him to develop gifts and character. Rejection is God’s smoke signal of the proving grounds of faith; signaling provision is ahead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our Father does not give us, his children, half-hearted and lukewarm gifts out of convenience and out of context of his plan, but all his gifts are good and perfect for his children. He was (despised and) rejected to bring about the good and perfect gift which is our access to him through grace, mercy, and love. If he can offer us true salvation from our sin and the death we deserve why wouldn't he provide us provisions so small in comparison?
