The Lord brought me back to this vision I had about the movie with a little orphan girl. I felt strongly that right now there is a heavy attack with the orphan spirit. When the enemy attacks our identity, it’s his attempt to get you to question what you’re about to walk into. He’s desperately trying to keep you in doubt about who you are and what you were created to do.
Here’s what the Lord was sharing with me in this vision:
This orphan girl just knew her parents left her there. She knew she was meant for more than the labels given her and the place she was living. She was under the oppressive nature of a locked down building and a cruel, nasty overseer. Through a chain of events, she was shown the actual truth – something that finally lit a fire deep inside. She was then taken from that place and shown things she had never experienced before. She was no longer a slave – no longer an orphan.
How many of us have known deep within ourselves that we were meant for more than what we’re currently doing? Deep within that building was the true spirit and identity of that girl, but the “skin” around her held her in. The labels and oppression of those around her kept beating her down. How much of our lives have been lived under the oppressive labels given by others and ourselves? How much of it has been lived being uncomfortable in our own skin, unsure of how to let that inward knowledge and fire out.
The Lord is lighting the fires within, showing you who He created you to be to take you to the places you’ve never been before! Every single person who has breath in his or her lungs has been given purpose. You are not a mistake!! Your parents may not have wanted you or been able to take care of you properly, but you have a Heavenly Father that planned for you and purposed you for such a time as this! Everyone on this earth is flawed and a lot of times those flaws deeply break us. But, your Creator has always wanted you and loves you deeper than anyone could from now through Eternity.
Just like He had Moses speak and free the Israelites, the Lord is declaring over you now “LET MY CHILDREN GO!” There are NO ORPHANS in The Kingdom!!
The world needs you – there is a purpose on your life no one else can fulfill! You are His pleasure. You are a part of His Will!
