Many of us are unable to see Abba Father for who He really is, as often times our relationship with God is influenced by the relationship we have had with our earthly father. When we have issues with our earthly father it can easily be transfer to the new relationship we have with Heavenly Father. If there are unresolved issues relating to earthly fathers with hidden core pains it can easily spills over into many areas of our lives – in families, marriages, careers, ministries and even our walk with God – hindering a life of intimacy and love. When our basic emotional needs are not met during childhood, we are unable to develop healthy relationships with God or other people during adulthood. Each child is different and experiences different languages of love – for example, one child may crave physical touch of hugs and kisses whereas another child in quality time spend playing with them. For a child to thrive they need an atmosphere of unconditional love and acceptance in order to be emotionally secured. The need for praise and affirmation is helpful in preparing them for life. If they live under constant criticisms it will adversely affect their self-esteem and worth. Unfortunately earthly fathers are imperfect and unable to meet these needs. These “father flaws” are ingrained in the children’s hearts with its hidden lies, wound, pain, and disappointments.
