We have to fiercely oppose every lie against our Sonship…
Which is to say that anything or anyone that tries to make you feel like you’re an orphan (on your own, no one to help you, have to pull yourself up by the bootstraps) is lying!
It seems that it’s popular these days to be credited for being an orphan. We worship and adore leaders, business people, entrepreneurs, who have made a testimony of pulling themselves up by their “bootstraps.”
This has created an orphan culture, where “orphans” are worshiped. Essentially, its cool to be an orphan.
The draw of our orphan culture is the lie of lack. The lie of lack says that we don’t have everything that we need in Christ, so we must go and attain it for ourselves.
Here’s the kicker: It doesn’t matter what we feel because what Jesus did on the cross and through His resurrection, is more real than what we feel.
Thank God we don’t have to live by our feelings, but by what we know! We are not orphans, we are children of God, heirs of the promises of God, and anything that comes against that truth is a flat our lie.
Let’s fiercely oppose the lies of lack and the orphan culture that we live in. You are not alone, you don’t have to do it on your own…You’re a Son of promise!
