Ask, and it will be given unto you; seek and you will find.
French physicist, mathematician, and philosopher Blaise Pascal
( 1623-1662) said: “ There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which only God can fill through His Son, Jesus Christ.”
We try to fill this inner void for a variety of reasons:
· We long to be loved.
· We want to be blessed.
· We feel empty.
· We want to be clean.
· We want to be happy.
But sometimes we don’t come to God to fill this inner void in our hearts.
We seek in the world not in the word and we drifted away from the source of everything we need in life. We fill our hearts with substitute gods.
It reminds me of my vacuum cleaner. Its job is to vacuum the dust and small particles on the floor. But if I use it to vacuum dirt that it does not suit for its purpose, then it will be destroyed.
And so with our hearts if we fill them with things that should not be there.
God’s love should be in our hearts, not hate, envy, or lust. God will truly fill our God –shaped vacuum with Himself if we truly seek him. Then our hearts will be overwhelmed by love that it will flows to others. How about that? Awesome!
Ask, and it will be given unto you; seek and you will find. Matthew 7:7
O taste and see that God is good
To all who seek his face;
Yea, blest the man who trust in Him,
Confiding in his grace. – Psalter
