The truth is, God has accepted me into His family. He has received me, chosen me, and welcomed me into His presence. This is because of the greatness of His love, grace, and mercy, and not because I merited His acceptance by works. This is the truth that the Bible teaches – He has not rejected me or cast me out. Thoughts and feelings of rejection are lies which the enemy lies to us. We do not have to accept those lies. We can reject the lies and believe the truth instead.
This is how I trained my heart and mind to receive and believe the truth:
“I am feeling __rejected__, but it is only a feeling brought on by my past. It is not a true reflection of my current reality. My reality is determined by the word of God, and this is what it says: ___ repeat Scripture ___.”
The word of God is powerful, living and active, the weapon of our warfare which is effective against all the lies of the enemy and mighty to tear down strongholds (2 Cor 10:4).
