Healer of our Hearts


Healer of Our Hearts - Sandra Fischer

Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart ~

 Psalm 119:2 ESV

Our first granddaughter was born with a hole in her heart and the prognosis was that she would need surgery, if the hole did not close. God answered our prayers to heal it without surgery. She is a healthy teenager today. 

Pascal, a 17th century theologian, contended that we all are born with spiritual holes in our hearts. He said that this God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every person can never be filled by any created thing, but only by God. It does not heal on its own. 

Some of us try to fill it with people or things – family, friends, jobs, hobbies, achievements or material possessions. Some even use drugs or other addictive substances to fill the void. We search what the world offers to make us complete, but only Jesus can fill that empty space, if we allow him to. Only Christ, the heart healer, can make our holey hearts whole.

Has the hole in your heart been healed? Or are you searching for someone or something to fill it? The answer is just a prayer away. Ask God to forgive your sin and accept his gift of grace through Christ’s provision by his death, burial and resurrection. 

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.". Romans 10:9-10 ESV

Lord, I pray for those who don’t realize that you, Jesus, are the only heart healer. I pray they will come to know you and allow you to make them whole.
