Whispers

“And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!” And since we are his true children, we qualify to share all his treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God himself. And since we are joined to Christ, we also inherit all that he is and all that he has. We will experience being co-glorified with him provided that we accept his sufferings as our own.”
Romans 8:15-17 TPT

The spirit of religious duty
Has no claim on us
For it cannot make us worthy
To be children of God’s
It can only bind us
To loads we cannot lift
And bury us in graves
For it has no life to give

But now we have received
God’s Spirit of full acceptance
Enfolding each of us
Into the family of God’s essence
We need never feel orphaned
For He rises up within us
With us crying “Beloved Father”
Giving God our true affection

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

I can listen to the voices
Of those who would condemn
The Father of Lies
And the messengers he sends
Or I can turn my ears
To God’s enfolding Holy Spirit
To hear His truth whispers
That I am fully accepted

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

If I examine my self
Thinking to look for sin
There is nothing left to find
For Jesus took it all on Him
And gave me instead
The righteousness of God
So can fit right in
As God’s Beloved Child

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

If I do good works
As a child of God would do
It does not change my position
For no higher can I go
Now I’m a Child of God
Co-heir and one with Christ
Reigning by God’s side
I am with His fullness blessed

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

For we have now received
God’s Spirit of full acceptance
Enfolding each of us
Into the family of God’s essence
We need never feel orphaned
For He rises up within us
With us crying “Beloved Father”
Giving God our true affection

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
