What Power is Behind You Vs. RAD – Part Two

Sevenfold Spirit Vs. RAD



  This blog provides support for adoptive families, especially those with the difficulties of adopted RAD children. If this is your first time visiting this blog, please read the previous posts. I have spoken on many subjects that will be helpful as you walk out the life of being an adoptive parent.

In my last post I  talked about the Holy Spirit – specifically one of the sevenfold parts of the Holy Spirit called Wisdom. My previous post will help you understand where I’m going with this post. Please have a look.

In this post, I will continue (in outline form) to break down the seven parts of the Holy Spirit shown in Isa. 11:2. In my next two posts, I will pull everything together and discuss the power that is behind you while specifically facing RAD and adoption issues.

   1)  Spirit of the Lord
