When the world rejects you-chews you up and spits you out, do not hang your head in despair. Stand tall. You are a child of God. And if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed. Your true identy is not according to the standard the world sets. You are who God says you are.
“The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” –Zephaniah 3:17
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” –Isaiah 40:28-31
Being true to Jesus may be difficult, discouraging, and even dangerous at times, but it is never pointless or wasted. 1 Corinthians 15:28 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor for the Lord is not in vain.”
