Reject The Orphan Spirit

“You know my name. You know my name. You know my name. And oh how you tell me that I am your own. “ ~Tasha Cobbs Leonard


This refrain played over and over and over in my head. I recently attended a prayer brunch hosted by Sha’Meca Oliver of Pneuma Breathe Ministries and while there the singers flowed right into this song and it gripped my heart and hasn’t let me go since.


It just continues to stir what’s been in my heart for weeks.


He knows my name because I share His name. Because I believe in Him, I have received His name and have become His own child.


See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1


Can ya’ll give a shout of praise right there with me? Not only does He know MY name but He knows YOURS too! And not only that but He calls you His own.


He’s your Daddy and He loves you with an everlasting love.

You’ve been adopted.




You are no orphan. Remember…you’ve been adopted.


And in this adoption you are no Cinderella. You have all rights, love, privilege and access.  You are an heir to a rich inheritance. From our natural parents we can inherit debt. We can inherit a family history of poor health and even inherit addictions.


When we don’t have an accurate vision of who we are and the inheritance we lay claim to we may pine after what others have. We may inadvertently turn into Mean Girl like Cinderella’s step sisters, holding malice in our hearts for our sisters. We may covet what they have. If we don’t have an accurate vision of who we are we don’t even approach our Daddy right. We come to him as an orphan. We pray orphan type, edited, small prayers. Get this in your spirit, we are NOT orphans, we are heirs.


[bctt tweet=”Do not pray orphan prayers.” username=”inspiredfully”]


For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will. Ephesians 1:4-5


Praise be to God that as daughters of the King and joint heirs with Jesus we inherit the keys to the Kingdom. As daughters of the King we are entitled to all the benefits and blessings therein.


You are not an orphan

You are a daughter of the King

You are a joint heir with Jesus

You are LOVED


Receive this truth.


Pray with me….



I belong to you. Father thank you for loving me with an everlasting love. Thank you for being my Daddy, for adopting me, for knowing me by name and for calling me your own. You’ve given me a most beautiful inheritance. I am called a child of God. I am your daughter and your spirit has been sent to my heart. I am led by the spirit and my spirit bears witness that I am your own. I am a joint heir with Jesus and walk in the truth of who you say I am. May I always operate from the position of power and authority you’ve granted me.


As always, it is my prayer that you’ve been Inspired To Live Fully!

    I heard the testimony of Tasha Cobbs on the radio last week. “I recieve the spirit of adoption.” I’ve been praying on it, and this morning the Lord led me to Romans 8.
    “…ye have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba Father.” Praise God for how He works in our hearts!

    Well said! I especially like what you said about some of the problems we will face in our attitudes if we don’t realize who we are in Christ.
    God bless you, sister!
