March 8, 2014 | Daily Devotionals | March 8

Millions of grown men have been abandoned by their earthly fathers, and millions more have experienced the losses resulting from that missing part of themselves. It is for this very reason that Jesus opened a way to His own Father–to share Him with us so that we can find the love that is missing in our hearts. Our part is simply to allow God to love on us by coming to Him the way any boy would come to his dad:

  • to admire Him for who He is and what He has done
  • to just go sit in His lap and feel His love for us
  • to show Him our hurts and let Him tend our wounds
  • to allow Him to affirm us as His sons
  • to talk about our deep problems
  • to ask Him for things we need
  • to feed on His wisdom
  • to aspire to His character


When God’s man builds this connection with his heavenly Father, he experiences increasing levels of self-control because God heals the wounds from the past that cause his out-of-control behaviors.
