Rejection roots are another term for a wrong belief about yourself that has created a stronghold within you. It’s a false identity.


This belief about yourself came about through a lie where someone taught you a false reality and you believed it. This false reality created an ulterior you, with alternative motives.

Once you believe the lie that you are rejected, you then bear the identity of being unworthy, disqualified, unaccepted.

You identify and agree that you deserve what is happening because you are unworthy and that is who you are. Once that becomes your identity everything that comes at you, is weighted, judged and filtered by this new false identity.

God loves you, but the root of rejection won’t allow you to accept this. Your root of rejection will block truth and keep you identifying that you are not worthy to be loved, worthy to be a part of the kingdom, worthy to be forgiven.

A person with a root of rejection misunderstands a person’s intentions because the root of rejection always twists things around and most often makes the person perceive more rejection.

The rejection root works both ways. Not only stopping a person from receiving but giving love, kindness, mercy, forgiveness, compassion to themselves.

This false identity will cause the person to rebel and become very angry. Often lashing out at people who make them feel unworthy, rejected, shamed when in reality, it was not the people but the false lie they adopted about themselves that really did the damage. They can also become very proud as a way of protecting themselves because they are sick of feeling unworthy. But instead of being healed and rid of the fake identity, they cope with pride and deflection. always seeing others as the reason for their pain and rejection, instead of seeing the root as the problems.

It’s exhausting for the person with the rejection identity and for those that are close and trying to love them.  Their efforts are always blocked, misunderstood and twisted. Loved ones can become defeated and give up on loving someone who fights against them and can’t believe they are sincere.

When a person has adopted the identity that they are unworthy to be unconditionally loved and accepted, they will try to walk around forcing others to love and accept them, even though others do. It creates a deep void of insecurity that can’t be filled. So while they are trying to force them to give them what they need, the loved one is giving it, the rejected person can’t receive it and they become bitter and angry at them. It’s a lose-lose situation.


Rejection identity is a very destructive SABOTAGING stronghold that MUST go.


When this was my identity, it created so much anger and hatred in me. I wanted so badly to be loved and accepted.  I was fighting to fit in where I was already IN. Pleading for love when I was already loved. Begging to be worthy when I was already worthy. And the more I could not receive what they were already giving the angrier and resentful at them, the world, life and God, I got. 

God’s truth is ready for the exchange. For you to release the fake identity and accept who you really are and who you belong to. He loves you so much and wants you to know WHO HE has made you as and not what you have been led to believe.  You are HIS BELOVED! You bear His name, His image, His identity because He chose and adopted you as His own. 

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17 BSB

If you live with this thief, then full-heartedly seek freedom. You can seek out a deliverance ministry to help you. But as you learn about WHO you really belong to, your real identity will emerge and force out the lie. You must make the choice to rebuke the lie and believe the truth.


(ek-lek-tos’) Chosen- means Favorite, especially as a deeply personal choice – literally “chosen, out of a personal preference (intention).

But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life. Ephesians 2:10

For He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless in His presence. Ephesians 1:4

It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Psalm 100:3

Standing with you,
