God has placed eternity in the heart of man
There is a Divine draw
Billy G often mentions there is a hole in the human heart that only God’s presence can fill…that’s why many people crowd their lives with activities, things, addictions to dull the senses, because their hearts are empty…they are not aware that God’s presence can fill the void.
Below is a great passage…in context Paul is addressing the people of Athens concerning an idol to an unknown god…Paul goes on to describe the God who is knowable…
