Under Gods Command 

Judges 11:1-2 Jephthah the Giledite was a mighty warrior.  His father was Gilead; his mother was a prostitute.  Gilead’s wife also bore him sons, and when they were grown up, they drove Jephthah away. “You are not going to get any inheritance in our family,” they said, “because you are the son of another woman.”

Jephthah, an illegitimate son of Gilead, was chased out of the country by his half brothers.  He suffered as a result of another’s decision and not for any wrong he had done.  Yet in spite of his brother’s rejection, God used him.  If you are suffering from unfair rejection, don’t blame others and become discouraged.  Remember how God used Jephthah despite his unjust circumstances, and realize that he is able to use you even if you feel rejected by some.
