You are...Adopted - because you were made a child of God, by God, and for God's good pleasure.
Come on. Get real. Why would God see your mess and want to parade you down the streets of life proclaiming, "Look! Look! Here is my child!" The only other such similar Biblical event is when Jesus is baptized by John the Baptist.
"And after being baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, andcoming upon Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased." Mat 3:16-17 (NAS77 emphasis mine)
In Short, 'take note, this is my kid. I get real joy out of him. Hands off.' Because of this, I say, be encouraged. You're a child of God and you have the authority to say so.
"But as many, as received him—to those who believe in his name—he gave to them authority to become children of God," John 1:12 (LEB)
Once, my wife and all her siblings were accosted by some neighbor boys who were blocking their way home. They devised and executed a plan for their young brother who was riding a tricycle to scoot past and get home and tell their mother what was happening. When he got home his mother was cutting some bread. She ran to the place where the boys were and raised her hand saying, "You will never bother my children again." Well, she had forgotten about the bread knife which was in her handwhen summoned. It was the hand raised in defiant protection of her brood. The young men never were seen again. That and a trillion times more is how much Papa God loves and protects you.
