Have you ever had a really good idea and know that it was also a God idea, started moving towards that goal and found that you were stunted again? It may seem as though every time you try to move forward, something hinders you in life from accomplishing your dreams. Well, it may be a result of the image inside of you produced by two opposing forces: 1) Rejection and 2) Condemnation. These two forces can cause negative thought patterns, creating an image inside of you that's often difficult to overcome without the help of God. Rejection thoughts and condemnation thoughts often work together to keep one from rising up in life because they feed off each other. When one is rejected, condemnation speaks up and says, "See, it's because you did this. You messed up again. You'll never get it together." Condemnation may keep you trying to be perfect and then rejection says, "Nobody loves you because you're always messing up, so you're not worth being loved. If you just be good enough, people will accept you." All lies, lies, lies of the enemy! You are already chosen by God to be accepted in His family. He loves you and there's nothing the devil can do about it! Let the word of God build you up and give you a new self-image, the right image created in the likeness and image of God, your Father!!!.
