Many Fathers Meditations By Apostle John Dean

Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:

For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee. Proverbs 23:10 KJV

God has given every man the biological materials to be successful when those materials are given back to God for His blessing. However, success in building your spiritual house depends on how you relate to and learn from other men. The key to each man’s success has a direct relationship to his willingness to sit at the feet of and learn from the wise men that God has placed around him. It seems as though the wisdom of the Lord is like a giant puzzle and God has given a piece of that puzzle to everyone else. It’s our responsibility to retrieve each of those pieces by being a submissive learner. As we retrieve each piece and learn, we then see God’s ordained plan for our life begin to take form, thus ushering us into our destiny.

In fact, being fathered is a journey rather than a destination. Each man spends his life sitting at the feet of other men as other men spend their life sitting at his feet. Many men today feel abandoned or incomplete because they grew up without the love of a natural father.

These feelings are real. It’s not God’s plan for anyone to be without the love and nurturing of their father. The confidence we receive from our father should catapult us into life as conquerors rather than with feelings of insecurity and doubt.

Unfortunately, in many cases those who have grown up without a good father example seem to have a harder time sitting at someone’s feet and learning. This is usually caused by the fear of abandonment. They seem to always be ready to receive the bad news—he’s gone.

I have good news for you. This is the time of “restoring the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to the fathers” according to Malachi 4:5-6. The prophetic anointing that is being poured out on Godly men right now is actually changing them from being only a male with children into being a protective father with the heart and attitude of God.

Being old doesn’t make one a father. Being touched by God is the only thing that can make a male a real father.


I thank you that from the very beginning of time you had a plan for the fatherless. You even had a plan for those who had fathers, but were not fathered. Lord I want to be one of the men that you can count on in this wonderful day of the father anointing. Help me to love your children with the same love as you have shown to me.
