The word orphan by definition describes one who is "bereaved or lonely, or one deprived of parents by either death or desertion." The orphan heart is one that is disconnected from acceptance, love, and security by reason of damage and rejection by authority. The orphan heart is a pandemic in the Body of Christ these days. We are like the fatherless generation in Malachi 4 who is under the curse of orphan hood. We are like those mentioned in Romans 8:15 who are subject to a spirit of bondage. That word bondage is defined in the Greek as "a state of a man which prevents him from enjoying his inheritance." Christians are walking in a state of bondage that prevents them from enjoying what is rightfully theirs through Christ. They do not understand that they've been adopted into God's family. That word adopted literally means "to be placed or seated as a son." Slaves do not have an inheritance; only sons have an inheritance. The enemy of our soul works so very hard to make sure that we operate as spiritual slaves our entire lives so that we will perpetuate the orphan heart. To learn more about how to be healed of the orphan heart, watch "The Orphan Heart" with Larry Burden.
