Worship: Order in the Camp / Wellness: Bad Eating Habits

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake  Even if by nature you are not an organized person like Pastor Flemons confesses that he is, you may still bring your life into order, he says. You don’t have to allow depression to continue, because of the disorder of your space or time. For the Bible says that we should do all things “decently and in order.” (Read 1 Corinthians 14:40.)

Consider how God set things in order for the Israelites as soon as they left Egypt. There was a specific order of the tribes of Israelites around the sanctuary. It was for their training and discipline.

“Even before they left Egypt a temporary organization had been effected, and the people were arranged in companies, under appointed leaders. At Sinai the arrangements for organization were completed. The order so strikingly displayed in all the works of God was manifest in the Hebrew economy. God was the center of authority and government. Moses, as His representative, was to administer the laws in His name. Then came the council of seventy, then the priests and the princes, under these ‘captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens’ (Numbers 11:16, 17; Deuteronomy 1:15), and, lastly, officers appointed for special duties. The camp was arranged in exact order, the tabernacle, the abiding place of God, in the midst, and around it the tents of the priests and the Levites. Outside of these each tribe encamped beside its own standard.” {Ed 37.4}

To bring your personal life into order, Pastor Flemons presented SPACE, a 5-point principle of organization. First, the S: Separate everything into piles. Don’t throw anything away yet. Just simply separate everything. This way you get to see what you really have, he says. That alone brings a sense of peace into your life. Do the same thing with time management. Simply write down what you need to do. Then group them. The P is for purge what is not needed. Do this also with time management. Some things don’t deserve your time. The A is for assigning things, as God assigned an exact place for everything in the sanctuary and every tribe camped around the sanctuary. Things in your home must have an assigned place, as things to do must have an assigned block of time. The C is for containing what has been assigned to a space or time period. Finally, the E: You must periodically evaluate your space and / or your schedule. Determine whether it is working out as is or whether you need to improve it in some way.

Worship: For Health’s Sake  Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, listed a few bad eating habits and their dangers. He says bad eating habits include overeating, eating between meals, drinking with meals, chewing gum and eating candy.

Overeating produces toxins and acids in the body that lead to gas. Your stomach can hold more than what it can handle. Therefore, don’t eat until you feel bloated.

Eating between meals prevents your digestive system from resting. It will cause constipation, indigestion, acid reflux, and flatulence, which is gas. It is best to leave five resting hours between meals. Smoothies are the exception.

Drinking with meals causes the digestive juices to be watered down so that proper digestion of the meal is impaired. Indigestion and gas are the result.

Chewing gum and eating candy between meals cause the digestive juices to be excreted for digestion. But because there is no food to be digested, only acids are left in the stomach and then the blood becomes acidic. These habits also force the system continue to work, rather than to rest as needed. If you want to chew gum or eat candy, it is best done nearest mealtime.
