Worship: For Heaven’s Sake “Don’t try to hurt God’s people. He will take off your wheels!” says Pastor Flemons. (Read more below.)
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that walking is beneficial to every system in the body. Walking improves your mood. It will even lift the clouds of depression and, in turn, strengthen the immune system. Walking will lower blood sugar and blood pressure. Walking will cause you to lose weight and eliminate toxins. Walking will steel you against chronic disease. Walking improves gastric mobility. And walking, not makeup or jewelry or decorative stockings–but walking–will make your legs look great. You will be less likely to get varicose veins. And walking will help give you a mind to achieve what God has in store for you. Pastor Flemons says that a brisk power walk is best, but regular walking is better than none. Start at your own pace and time, until you can walk 30 minutes to an hour a day.

Words of Encouragement
Deuteronomy 16:19, 20 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Proverbs 14:26 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: And his children shall have a place of refuge.
For Heaven’s Sake…
The children of Israel had left Egypt, but soon found themselves at a point in their lives where they could see no way to go forward and no reason to go backward. Before them lay the Red Sea; it was too deep to traverse. Behind them was Pharoah’s army; it was too powerful for them to fight. Either way, they would be captured or killed. To the left and to the right, they were flanked by mountains. By all accounts, they were trapped. They were doomed.
“Sometimes,” says Pastor Flemons, “the Lord allows circumstances to come into your life,” where there is no way out, “but to simply trust in the Lord.” When you get into such situations, you will find that these are the times when God can work His greatest miracles for His people. What we need to learn is how to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, says Pastor Flemons.
In Exodus 14:21 onward we learn that God walled up the waters of the Red Sea and dried up the thick murky mud, so that God’s people–all–walked over on dry land. But God troubled the host of the Egyptians. What we need to learn from their experience is that when we do what God calls us to do, little though it may be, God adds His divine power to our “little bitty human effort” and miracles happen. The children of Israel–from the youngest to the feeble oldest–all crossed safely over to the other side. But Pharoah and his army saw the very wheels come off their chariots and they died in the Red Sea. Evidence of chariot wheels in the Red Sea were recently documented as those of Pharoah during the time of Moses.
All Moses did was stretch forth his hand over the Red Sea. The power wasn’t in the hand of Moses. God simply wanted to honor Moses, while God got the glory. God wants to use us in the very same way. He wants to honor us, as He gets the glory.
