“The widest thing in the universe is not space, it is the potential capacity of the human heart.” A. W. Tozer – The Pursuit of God Google “Heart Health” and over 556,000,000 sites pop up. That’s 556 million. Read just a few of those articles and the evidence is overwhelming — there is a direct correlation to what we put into our bodies (diet, exercise, rest, supplements etc.), and the health of our heart. While God is certainly concerned with the well-being of our physical heart, it is the state of the spiritual heart that matters most. Our “kardia” (Grk) is the center and fountain of all spiritual life. This word heart is found in scripture over 800 times. More than money — or even heaven. Of all of those heart verses, one of my favorites is 2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.” (KJV) The Lord is diligently seeking men and women whose hearts are perfect. What does a perfect heart look like? Consider these qualities from God’s Word. A “perfect” heart is a: Broken and Contrite heart; “…a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” (Psalm 51:17 ESV) Clean heart; “Create in me a clean heart, O God…” (Psalm 51:10 ESV)
Rejoicing heart; “…my heart shall rejoice in your salvation” (Psalm 13:5 ESV) Serving heart; “…serve the Lord your God with all your heart…” (Deuteronomy 10:12 ESV) Pure heart. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8 ESV) It is interesting that Jesus taught the essence of a man’s heart is revealed by his spoken words — “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45 ESV) What do your words say about the kind of treasure you have stored in your heart? When you speak, is it evident that your heart is perfect in the eyes of the Lord? What are you "hiding" in your heart? When life is not the way it is supposed to be, what does your speech say about the condition of your heart? How’s your heart? Are your "arteries" clogged from the pain and pressure of everyday life? From un-confessed sin? Envy? Bitterness? No spiritual exercise? Lack of worship? Are you feeding on spiritual "fast food"? Maybe it’s time to change your spiritual diet. Hide the word of God in your heart. Saturate your heart with prayer. Worship Him with all your heart. It will turn your life around. Why not seek today to have “a heart that is perfect toward Him?”
