The most painful form of rejection is betrayal. Betrayal is a powerful spiritual acid that
pours its corrosive presence into your heart eventually eroding your ability to
Be careful when under this kind of attack. Betrayal has a goal. It wants
to erode your ability to trust people by destroying one relationship after
another until you finally give up the fight and find yourself standing alone in
a place of darkness. This is when you are the most vulnerable to the ultimate
goal of the spirit of betrayal.
If you cannot forgive those who have betrayed you the next step in this
deteriorating process is to erode your ability to trust God. That has always been
the goal of darkness from the very start when the first painful realization of
betrayal brought its deceiving presence into your life.
The only way of out this dark and painful place is to forgive your
betrayer. Forgive them with the same measure you have been forgiven. When you take this step of forgiving faith you
will see a pathway emerge leading you out of a dark and painful place into a
place of light and truth.
