   "You have received the Spirit of adoption, the Spirit producing Sonship ... (Romans 8:15 AMPC)

    As we continue this subject of the orphan spirit, it would be remiss of me not to mention the deep impact that disappointment has on our lives: “Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick,” (Proverbs 13:12 MSG).

    God has been speaking to me about an orphan spirit, for quite sometime and again more recently, because I’m including it in my next book. It affects so many precious people.

     I have had to counsel many of them over the years, this deep-seated issue exists for many different reasons, especially painful past experiences, harsh upbringing, and religious or spiritual oppression.

​         Deborah can be found in Judges chapter 4 and 5 as a matriarch, “…arose a mother in Israel” (Judges 5:7); a Judge (leader), wife (of Lapidoth) and Prophetess.

     Firstly Deborah’s husband, his name denotes “flaming torch,” any man who recognises the call of God on his wife and allows her to lead is not weak. It takes strength to do that. Then Barak, the commander of the Israeli army, his name meant, “lightening.”
