1 Samuel 8.7
They are not rejecting you. They've rejected me
wow, lord. thank you for this reminder that life is never about us. good or bad, all things revolve around you. circumstances, situations, purposes, destinies, all things seen and unseen and beyond - everything is about you. when we talk to others about you, may we always be reminded that you are the one working in their hearts, you are the one working in their lives. may we not just bask in positive responses as if the response was about us - may we also look to you for rejections at the moment, as well, knowing that your word never goes back to you empty, it always bears fruit and flourishes and brings forth nothing but good fruit. thank you that because of this truth we can consider everything truly pure joy.
