You're not an orphan. You're a daughter of the King!

April 6, 2019

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15

I have talked with many women who struggle in their relationship with God because deep down they feel as though He doesn’t love them as much as He loves others. They struggle with their identity in Christ because of the painful experiences they’ve had in life. Instead of feeling like daughters of the King, they feel like orphans—rejected, abandoned and unwanted. They live their lives unable to confidently call on their Father God, and unable to fully walk in their identity and purpose in Him.

We’ve all been there.

That’s why it is my deep longing that we recognize that we have already received the Spirit of adoption, and we can cry out with confidence, “Abba, Father”. “Abba” is a term that expresses warm affection and filial confidence. It’s not something we randomly say to someone. Only a son or daughter can say, Abba. Only a child of God can approach His throne of grace boldly and receive mercy and find grace to help them in their time of need.

For this reason, this ministry was born, hoping that one day the light bulb will come on and we will no longer see ourselves as orphans—rejected, abandoned, and unwanted, but as God’s beloved and chosen daughters, grafted into His Vine, and brought near by the precious blood of Jesus. We are accepted into His family—flaws and all. And as daughters of the King, we can cry out with confidence, “Abba, Father!”

Prayer: Abba, Father! I cry out to you! Thank you for loving me. Thank you for wanting me. Thank you for choosing me. I declare I have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear. I have received the Spirit of adoption, and Father I receive your unfailing love for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Romans 8:14-17; Ephesians 2:13)
