Countdown to Pesach 6-Apelier Rebbe
The Apelier Rebbe commented on, “Let the heart of them rejoice, who seek God (I Chronicles 16:10).” When someone seeks a certain object, he feels no gladness in his heart until his quest is successful. But when a person seeks God, the very act of seeking Him rejoices the heart of the seeker. (Siach Sarfei Kodesh, Volume V, 48)
