Have you ever told yourself, “I don’t care” about your health when you really do care?
It is a subtle way the enemy tries to trap you!
I will explain what I mean shortly. You will also learn a 7-word revelation that can help you escape the “I don’t care” trap.
A TBYT reader wrote me on Facebook recently about her desire to serve on a missions trip. However, negative habits were threatening her health and her dream.
In my encouragement back to her, I ended my message with “take good CARE.”
The Spirit led me to type the word “CARE” in uppercase letters. I wasn’t sure why at first, but came to understand it during my exercise session later that morning.
Consider that the word “care” has 2 powerful meanings:
One meaning of “care” naturally flows into the other.
Because my health matters to me, I exercise regularly to tend to my health.
Because I care, I care.
Does that make sense?
I had breakfast with a friend recently and was explaining my revelation about the word “care.” She nodded in agreement and summarized: “You care for what you care about.”
Wow (thanks Mia)! Speak this truth out loud and let it sink in: “You care for what you care about.”
The enemy tries to deceive you into thinking “I don’t care” or “I’ll think about it tomorrow” to minimize the importance of your health, relationships, and finances.
He knows that if you don’t care, you won’t care!
The Bible says:
“Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.”– Proverbs 4:23
Your heart speaks to your desires, what you care about. What you care about shows up each day in how you invest:
Your investments confirm what you care about in truth, not just what you say!
So if you say you care about it, then how are you caring for it ?
Take a moment to consider your daily actions. What are you caring FOR (tending to)?
Ensure that you are not making the following mistakes:
Remember: “You care for what you care about.”
My prayer is that you put this principle into action each day and experience the blessings of 3 John 1:2:
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
Care for what you care about.
Be blessed with health, healing, and wholeness,
