God developed you and me to require to belong, to be valued, and to be loved. Apart from that foundation, we encounter shame. Struggling to survive, we desperately strive to belong, be loved, and be valued for who we are. If we’re sincere, most of us carry a deep father wound that skews our perception of the Heavenly Father.
Possibly you see God as indifferent, punitive, capricious, absent, or angry.
I hear you asking, “So what?
If you view your self by means of the grid of how you assume God views you, it offers energy to the enemy. Unresolved wounds from childhood empower him to torment you and make you think you do not belong, that no a single can appreciate you, that you are a failure and have no intrinsic worth. Although I loved Jesus, for decades that was my reality.
In this interview, Ken Symington, author of Loved Like Never ever Prior to: Discovering the Father Heart of God shares of his deep father wound. In response to his dad’s words, which left him broken and struggling to survive, Ken saw himself as a failure and was driven to execute to earn God’s approval. The Heavenly Father tenderly permitted Ken to face deep suffering to provide him from darkness into the light of Daddy God’s appreciate.
This interview contains:
- Encouragement if your dad in no way mentioned he was proud of you.
- Sensible actions to overcome lies about your identity.
- Viewing God the Father by means of the eyes of Jesus.
- Finding out to embrace the reality Daddy God is superior and He loves you.
Once again, Father is an emotive word. If you didn’t really feel loved or valued by your dad, you will respond to God the Father in secret rebellion, passivity, or drivenness to execute behavior rooted in the false belief God the Father is not trustworthy or type. There is a greater way!
As you listen to Ken, I pray the Holy Spirit speaks to your heart. Ask Jesus to expose lies you think about your self and about the Heavenly Father. Let Jesus inform you who you are.
My dear buddy, could Jesus’ Daddy turn into your Daddy – a Daddy who finds delight in you and desires to heal your broken heart.
I’d appreciate to hear from you and pray with you as you move forward on your adventure to encounter the freedom of the Father’s unconditional appreciate for you.
May possibly the joy of Abba Father’s appreciate quiet your heart and fill you with His peace.
