Daily Devo- A Cardiovascular Workout

Today you might choose to eat a heart healthy diet. One that is low in fat and salt.
Today you may do a cardio workout to strengthen your heart and make healthy.
Today you may take a baby aspirin because your doctor said it was a good preventative measure.

All this is great. They should be done. It helps protect and guard your heart from disease and a possible heart attack.

If this is all you do to guard your heart today, you are missing something huge.

Proverbs 4:20-23
20  My son, pay attention to my words. Open your ears to what I say.
21  Do not lose sight of these things. Keep them deep within your heart
22  because they are life to those who find them and they heal the whole body.
23  Guard your heart more than anything else, because the source of your life flows from it.

We must fill our today with the word of God. If we do not, our heart, our source of life becomes sick and defiled. We then contract "spiritual" heart disease. What does that look like? Mark 7 tell us clearly;

Mark 20: 20-23
 20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”

So today lets guard our hearts. Let this be what fills us:

Philippians 4:8
 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

I want to fight heart disease on EVERY level! Physical and spiritual. Both will require sacrifice. You can't live a full life if either aspect of your heart is diseased

So get up and we both can start chasing after the heart of God. His is the perfect heart. It will be exactly what we want ours to look like!

Chasing After Hearts,
