Breaking An Orphan Mindset – Rightly Interpreting Your Hardship – By Thomas Koester

Nothing can be more meaningful or powerful as the Father Heart of GOD.

The reason you feel like a victim is because you do not feel like a son or daughter. Having an “orphan mentality” makes you vulnerable and an easy target of doom and gloom.

Stop interpreting your hardship as a series of mishaps. If you begin to embrace all hardship as an established fact of your son-ship, suddenly you’ll gain strength you’ve never thought possible. Our God is no dead-beat dad; those whom he loves, he inflicts hardship, and his hardship for your life comes from a good place, his heart.

“My child, don’t reject the Lord’s discipline,
and don’t be upset when he corrects you.
For the Lord corrects those he loves,
just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights. Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding.”
Proverbs 3:11-13

GOD is fathering you into the best son, or daughter you can be, because that’s what a good father does.

Nothing can be more meaningful or powerful as the Father Heart of GOD.

Maybe you’re simply misunderstanding your difficulties. If you can accept difficulties as a test from God rather than bad luck, you’ll want to past the test instead of complaining about it.

Maybe you’re not an orphan after all, maybe God is fathering you because he’s in love with you, just like a real daddy.

So, snap out of it!

You’re not an orphan. You’re a son or daughter of The Most High God!
