OVERCOMING THE ORPHAN SPIRIT
*BIBLE READING: PSALM 10:14; ROMANS 8:15; JOHN 14:18(MSG); MATTHEW 6:9*
*”And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”Galatians 4:6-7(KJV)*
The Concept of the Fatherhood of God is all over the Scriptures. God even refered to the people of Israel as His First born. *(Ex. 4:22).* During His Earthly Ministry, Jesus would always use the phrases “your Father”, “My Father”, “Our Father”. *(Matt. 5:6; Matt. 7:21; Matt. 6:9 respectively).* The Father-Son Relationship we have with God is the Foundation of everything we do as His people. It is one of the Major Secrets behind the Phenomenal Life and Miracles of Jesus. Without an understanding of it, you would be crippled as a child of God.
The Concept of Fatherhood is so important that when it comes to effective praying, it was the First Principle that Jesus taught His disciples. In Matthew 6:9 He said *”After this Manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven…”* This is why the enemy uses the orphan spirit as a weapon against the believer. The orphan spirit is that spirit which disconnects a child of God from access to Him as a Father by instilling a sense of abandonment and rejection from God.
To overcome the orphan spirit requires a Revelation of God as a Father. You can achieve this by asking the Holy Spirit and also by meditating on Relevant Scriptures. Secondly, you need to connect to a spiritual father i.e., a man who represents God to you and who can make the Love and Acceptance of God the Father more tangible to you. The man could be the person that led you to Christ, your church pastor or the set man of the Commission or Ministry to which you belong. It could even be your biological father who is also born-again and providing you spiritual leadership. Ask God to lead you to the person if you don’t have such a relationship already. And then once you meet him, begin to listen to their messages, serve and connect to them with your substance.
