An Orphaned Heart
It was the Father’s love that brought Adam to life. With respect to other created beings, God needed only to speak a word, and they came into being from nothing. However, in the case of Adam, the Father came down, and scooped up some earthly mud, and began to fashion Adam in His own image and likeness. The Father took special care in creating Adam.
In all of human experiences, there is nothing that can compare to the very moment God breathed life into Adam. This moment captures the very purpose and essence of man’s existence, Mankind exists for, by, and through Him who is Love, and who is our Father.
In that moment of creation Adam experienced the firsts of firsts.
He heard the first voice: His Father’s voice.
He saw the first face: the Glorious Face of His Father.
He felt the first touch: the touch of His Father.
His first emotion was awakened in response to the Love of Father.
It was the same for Eve.
This is what we were created for. Face to face encounters with the Father.
Then came the deception, from the very first orphan.
It has been Satan’s mission to make as many orphans as he can.
For you have not received a spirit of slavery again to fear [of God’s judgment],but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [the Spirit producing sonship] by which we [joyfully] cry “Abba Father”! The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit [assuring us] that we [believers] are children of God. Romans 8:15 Amp
The mature children of God are those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit. And you did not receive the spirit of religious duty, leading you back into the fear of you never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for He rises up within us, our spirits join Him in
saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!”
For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as He whispers into our innermost being . “You are God’s beloved child!” And since we are His true children, we qualify to share all his treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God himself, And since we are joined to Christ, we will also inherit all that He is and all that He has.I have given them the glory that You gave me, that they may be one as We are one I in them and You in Me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me. John 17:22-23 The whole mission of creation is about receiving love and to bring us into unity. That is why Jesus commanded us to love each other as a testimony to the world. The Father’s mission is that the entire world experience His love by the love that flows in and through us as we receive His love and give it to the next person we meet. That is our mission in life. It is what we were created for. Every fiber in our being was created to receive love and give it away. Nothing in life
is more natural than walking in the love of our Father and passing that unconditional love unto others. On the contrary, the orphan spirit is unnatural, and causes us to be unnatural as long as we allow it to influence us.
