Today I was listening to some teachings on YouTube and browsing through Hillsong songs when a thought suddenly popped into my mind:
'How are we expected to react when we are going through tough situations in life and the society makes us feel less important, less attractive, inferior and not relevant'?
I am talking to someone who works hard at work but their superiors fail to recognize or acknowledge the work they do; someone who has been searching for various opportunities in life but to no avail; someone who is rejected despite showing love to the world.
I may not be able to understand the pain you go through but what I can tell you today is that 'the stone that the builders rejected became the corner stone'. When the world thinks you do not matter; just remember God in heaven will take charge of your situation if you present your burden to him. Jesus himself was rejected and crucified, so you are not alone going through it.
The best thing you can do is to continue being the best you can be, with a pure heart full of love. God uses the foolish things to shame the wise; God will openly bless you beyond measure so the world knows that when he opens the door no man can shut; similarly, when God blesses you, NO MAN will be able to curse you.
As I was still contemplating on the matter I felt the spirit in me reminding me that God has counted the hairs of our heads. That's how important each and every one of us is to God. My dear friends; you matter so much to God and he cares for you deeply. Do not lose hope when the world labels you irrelevant or not valuable. As long as God is on the throne; only time will tell. Stand still and watch God promote you.
