Giving Forgiveness for the Father Wound

Through Forgiveness, You Will Gain Freedom and Power

Today I want to look at giving forgiveness, focusing on getting release from the Father Wound that so many men carry all their lives as a major burden.

The average man in America today has not been emotionally and spiritually fathered and they are suffering from that.

Yes, men today are angry at their fathers for the most fundamental neglect of all – the neglect to show love to a child. Without that love, boys grow up thinking, “Dad doesn’t value me. I mustn’t be worth very much.” They do not know what it feels like to be a real man.

And this causes anger – and also pain, hurt, and feelings of inferiority. So how can forgiveness enter in when I’ve been hurt so bad? It seems impossible.

It may well be impossible in the flesh. But with God, all things are possible.

It must begin with a CHOICE YOU MAKE: you must choose to forgive. And you really should choose to forgive, for if you do not, then you are going to continue to be bound by this anger and even hatred.

So take this Father Wound to Jesus. Knowing the heart of Father God is what ultimately heals a man’s father-wound.

And let your father know – whether he’s dead or alive – “dad, I forgive you.” Forgiving him may even help you see him as a man who was very real and vulnerable – one who needs your mercy, respect, and honor.

Through forgiveness, you will gain freedom and power.
