Bible Verses for When You Feel Rejected

Feeling rejected can be so hard, and make you feel alone in this world. I am sure more often than not we can admit that we have felt rejected at some point in our lives.  

Your husband has declared he didn't want you anymore?

You got looked over for that promotion?

You didn't get asked to go and do something when everyone else did? 

Feeling like you don't fit in, and so on? 

No matter the reason of being rejected, it can create a lot of hurt and make us feel unlovable. Just one time of being rejected, and it can cause us to create a wall and allow our minds to think we are unlovable and no one will accept us. 

Or you might feel God is leading you to do something, maybe speak out in a group setting, like with the ladies group, but you have such a fear of rejection, you are missing out on using your gift and talents! 

The fear of being rejected can create a weakness in us, and we have to make sure to not get in the mindset of being afraid because we won't fit in, or that people will make fun of us! 

Below you will see a variety of bible verses for when you feel rejected. When we take what is said in the bible on how God feels for us, and place that as our identity, it makes us virtually rejection proof! 

When we use God's word as a shield to the hurtful things people say, it will start to strengthen our emotional and spiritual health.  

We start knowing and believing that the rejection of others has no meaning or power on our true identity! Just trust and know your worth in the word of God, and those fears and feelings of rejection will begin to slip away. 

Speak these verses over your life, and trust and know they are truth, and be set free from the feelings of rejection!

  1. Rejection is hard, but then I think about how Christ was rejected and it helps me to keep my focus on Him! Great post and I'm printing off the verses. We all need reinforcements :-)

  2. Thank you very much for sharing these verses that are actually inspiring and make a person feel that he is not useless and only more struggle can make him successful.

  3. The value of rejection is that We share in the suffering of Christ who was rejected that we might be accepted.

  4. I have had to repeat John 1:11 over and over to myself lately. I find solace in the fact that while those closest to me may not be able to receive my counsel or support me in my endeavors… that Christ went through the same thing, suffered the same situation.

  5. I'm totally thankful Jesus will never reject me. I've been rejected for a lot of things and it hurts! It gets to your head if you don't protect your mind with the truth of God's word. Thank you!
