The first book that I wrote was rejected by fifteen different publishing companies. I shook off the rejection and kept knocking on doors. It was the sixteen company that bought my manuscript, which went into several printings and was translated into Korean. God closed 15 doors through those rejection letters to divert me to the right publisher.
God can do the same for you. You must see your rejection as a door that God shuts to protect you from making a mistake and to point you in a new direction. When Joseph was rejected by his brothers, he looked past their hateful actions and saw God’s hand at work. He was sold into slavery, but God promoted to the second-highest position in Egypt. If Joseph’s brothers hadn’t rejected him, his promotion would not have happened.
Even though you may feel abandoned by someone’s rejection, you need to look past the rejection and see God having a better plan for you. The Lord is so wise and powerful that He will use their rejection to get you to a better place where He can bless you. (Slaying Your Giants, Hendrickson Publishers, 2013, p.147)
