Becoming the Cornerstone

Thursday, March 2, 2017

Psalm 118:22 - "The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone." 

How many times have you been rejected? From a college, a job, a person, a group. It's definitely not the best feeling in the world. At that time, you probably don't feel like you have the potential to become the cornerstone - to be the base of something great.

But Psalm 118:22 says that the one who has been rejected goes on to become the supporting base for something big - something that couldn't function without that one. God wants you to remember that one rejection doesn't change who you are. You are destined for big things and you will become powerful in due time.

Instead of viewing your rejections as having been rejected, view them as your path becoming a little clearer. That job, that person, that college wasn't for you and now you know and can find the one that is meant for you. A rejection is really a blessing in disguise.

Why waste time on something that doesn't appreciate you for all that you are?

Everyone is going to become the cornerstone of something whether it's your family and being a parent, finding a great job and being relied on in your company, teaching a class full of little children who look up to you, being involved in your church and community and supporting events that couldn't go on without you and the work you put in.

You may not have found your place just yet but as you make decisions and your path becomes clear, you'll find that place that needs you just as much as you need it. And this isn't something to be rushed so there's no need to worry about not knowing where your place is right now.

Going into your future, remember that the stone that was discarded and unused by one group of builders was picked as the most important stone for a different group. Even though someone may have rejected you, it doesn't change your full potential and ability. Don't let their mistake fool you into thinking you aren't capable of great things.

You know your strength and your worth. Don't settle. Focus on becoming the cornerstone.
