Description
 

Earthly fathers are intended to be windows on the father heart of God. Sadly, parenting can sometimes fall well short of this image. As a consequence, we can have a poor interpretation of what God truly thinks of us and can spend our lives struggling with the symptoms of fear and insecurity. Today, more than ever, people have a love hunger which never seems satisfied, leading many searching in the wrong places to find fulfilment for their deep needs.

One of the most defining aspects of Christianity is that God is also known as “Father”. Jesus even instructs us to approach God this way through the Lord’s Prayer. The revelation of the Father heart of God has for many been a major step on the road to true wholeness, and away from the anxiety of performance-based striving to please God.

As you move along the stepping stones described in this book, you will journey from a distorted self-image based on abandonment, neglect, rejection or even abuse to an image based on the Word of God and revelation from the Holy Spirit – meaning you can finally remove your distance from God and experience the love and freedom there is to be had through a heavenly Father relationship.
