Orphans walk with one eye present to be among the living, but a constant twitching in the eye because at any moment they made be yanked back into a system of bondage that they desparately want to escape. Traveling around from here to there with a stack of luggage on their back, if not visable to the eye, it is emotional weight that constantly feeds the track of their minds with full occupants in a race, going round and round, and around. These mental demons are on a treadmill attacking confidence, belonging, identify, inheritance, healing, and a possible future of peace.
This is the orphan spirit. A behavior that manfests what we belive we are not entitled to because we are unworthy to recieve such an awesome gift from a loving God. There is no need to prove yourself to your Daddy God. He knows what you are capable of whether you are holding a gun in your hand, a bag of weed, or a can of Bud Light burping incessiantly. God loves you and He does have a plan for your life. Associate yourself with the belief that no matter what I have done, Daddy God still loves me and has a place for me in His kingdom. Desire to be there and turn away from your current activity knowing that you have been adopted.
