“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 painful experiences they’ve had. Instead of feeling like daughters of the King, they feel like orphans who are rejected, abandoned and unwanted. This is heartbreaking to me, because no matter how much I try to explain who they are in Christ and who God is and how much He loves and favors them, they just don’t see it yet. So they live their lives unable to confidently call on their Father God, and unable to fully walk in their inheritance as joint-heirs with Christ.
It is my deep longing and prayer that we receive God’s Spirit of adoption. Once we receive the Spirit of adoption, we can then cry out with confidence, “Abba, Father”. We can then approach His throne boldly and receive mercy and find grace to help us in our times of need. We can walk in our rich inheritance as joint-heirs with Christ and fulfill our divine purpose in Him.
For this reason, this ministry was born. For this purpose we release devotionals everyday, hoping that one day every reader will no longer see herself as an orphan in God’s kingdom, but as grafted into His Vine, as accepted into His family—flaws and all, and as a daughter of the King who cries out with confidence and beautiful conviction, “Abba, Father!”
Prayer: Abba Father! Thank you for loving me and for wanting me. I receive your Spirit of adoption. I say with confidence Abba Father. I receive my rich inheritance as a joint-heir with Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
