Our theology drives our lives. What we know and understand about God impacts everything – everything we think, say, and do. It especially controls and directs spiritual activities such as preaching and counseling. In previous posts we looked at how the Fatherhood of God should impact the Counselor, and then at the role of this doctrine in the Counselee’s life.

There are also certain counseling problems that are especially helped by specific aspects of God’s Fatherhood. Before looking at these, let me just make two qualifications. First, while the whole Trinity is involved in every counseling solution, in this article we are limiting ourselves to the role of the Father in counseling. Second, while the Fatherhood of God is involved in every counseling scenario, I’m picking the issues in which God’s Fatherliness is especially helpful.
