Often unresolved conflict towards our earthly father or father figure can hinder us from having a relationship with God the Father. Sometimes there still lies unconscious hidden core pain from our father relationship within our mind, will and emotions (soul).

Hidden core pain can result from a father's spoken insults, broken promises, outright rejection, demeaning looks, disappointments, grief, or abandonment. Our image of Father God become shaded by our image of our earthly father as we transfer to Father God many of our feelings about our earthly fathers.

How we see Father God determines whether we can receive love, security, acceptance, rest, comfort, provision, and healing in His presence. Even a small flaw in our earthly father's character can distort our ability to receive Father God's love. No matter how much your earthly father provided for your physical needs, if you did not feel safe, secure, and comforted by his love and his presence, then you may feel Father God is far off.

Many children have desired for their fathers to meet their need for love, praise, and acceptance, but instead they feel like they have received rejection or nothing in return. That causes them to strife and perform for love and acceptance.

They think they have to be good enough to be loved.
(Jack Frost - Shiloh Place Ministries).

Father God loves you unconditionally, just as you are. Nothing you do can make Him love you more.

You can rest in His love.
