GOD I ALL YOU NEED!
The fear of rejection is based on two things. First, we all need to be loved. That's a fact. We all desperately need massive doses of love in our life to be healthy individuals. God says, "I want to love you." God is love, and He knows you need to be loved.
But, second, we develop the false idea that our need to be loved is solely dependent upon one person or a group of people. Think about what happen with Steve Stephens from Cleveland, Ohio this past week. He indicates he went on a rampage killing individuals because of his need to be loved either by his mother, his girlfriend, or others who he indicated never asked about his own mental health.
When you expect someone else to meet 100 percent of your need for love, you're asking for trouble. You're setting yourself up for hurt and opening the door for the fear of rejection. When you look to any other person besides God to meet all your love needs, he or she can't. There is no human being alive that can love you as completely and as fully as you need to be loved, and there never will be. Only God can do that.
So, the first step in overcoming the fear of rejection is to put God in first place, because He's the only one who can ultimately meet all your needs.
Reflection: How are you going to show someone you love them today? I hope this post did that as my demonstration, and that my beard reminds you of the purpose of #NoShaveNovember #MensHealth . 🤓😂 I ❤️ you!
