Day 31: The Spirit of Adoption
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
Today, we are going to UP-ROOT the Spirit of Rejection! God loves you very much! Great is God’s affections towards you. Today, God wants to reveal Himself to you as a gentle, forgiving Father, who is intimately involved in every detail of your life.
Embracing The Father Heart of God
One of the most wonderful revelations we can ever experience is the Father Heart of God. What do you think of when you hear the word “father”? Do you think of love, protection, provision, warmth, mercy, and parental tenderness? Or does the word “father” paint a picture of someone distant, absent, harsh, and withholding love?
Every person has their own expression of what God is like, based on the feelings, impressions, and experiences that we encountered with our earthly father. Our experiences with our earthly father, usually impacts how we relate to our heavenly Father. Good experiences bring us closer to knowing and understanding the Father Heart of God. Bad experiences create distorted images of our Father’s love towards us.
However, God desires to comfort us. God desires to Father the children of men. God’s arms are big enough for all the lonely, broken, rejected people of the world. The Bible says, “God makes a home for the lonely.” (Psalm 68:6).
Revealing The Father Heart of God
God is a good-good Father. God is extravagant with His love towards us. God is consistently loving. God is always affirming. God keeps all His promises. God never changes. We are God’s children and He calls us by name. God loves us relentlessly. God loves us through our pain – our bruises – and our stumbling. God is constantly thinking an uninterrupted stream of loving thoughts toward us!
Far too many of us allow our broken hearts to lead us into dark places. However, the Father will send His Spirit to those dark places to RESCUE you! Father God pursues us with His love from the moment of our first breath until the day He calls us home to be with Him.”
The Spirit of Adoption
In worship and prayer let us pull up the roots of rejection from the very tap-root. Receive the Spirit of Adoption. Receive God’s love for you daughter. Receive God’s love for you son. In an atmosphere of worship, find rest in the presence of God. A person with an orphan spirit will struggle in their walk with God, because the orphan does not know the heart of the Father. However, a son walks in confidence, because a son knows that he is loved by the Father.
The great Corrie ten Boom had some simple advice to offer this generation. Corrie ten Boom experienced much suffering at the hands of the Nazis as a Christian who hid Jewish families in her home during the holocaust. Yet, she went on to great spiritual victory as an evangelist. Corrie ten Boom would often conclude her sermons with a statement: “Don’t wrestle – nestle.”
“Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God. “
