Listening To The Father’s Heart

All of my sons and daughters have a deep desire to be known by their earthly fathers and by me, their heavenly Father. If your earthly father fails to affirm his love for you through words and affection, you will live your entire life seeking to fill this void in inappropriate ways. For daughters, they will be tempted to give their precious body away in hopes of feeling that love and intimacy they lacked from their earthly father. For sons, they will try to prove their worth through performance, achievements or deal with their pain with sex. This will result ina leanness in their soul and a wound in their heart that only I can fill. They will find themselves uncertain in their inner life, ruled by questions of who they are and seeking the opinions of others to decide this question. For men, a woman will often become the source of determining their manhood. Then they seek to perform for others and become posers, living the life they believe others will accept. They live as an orphan when their earthly father fails to give them what he was designed to impart to them. Son, hear me. I long to fill that ache in your soul, and I can if you will let me. I am a Father to the fatherless. And I love you and all my sons and daughters.
A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation. Psalms 68:5
