Worship: For Heaven’s Sake “God has promised success,” says Pastor Flemons. He then shared the biblically guaranteed step-by-step recipe for it found in Psalm 1.
First, you must get good counsel. Then you must walk in that good counsel, by living a godly life and surrounding yourself with godly Christians. Psalm 1:1 says it this way: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”
You have to be careful of who counsels you, says Pastor Flemons. If you take the advice of the ungodly, you will find yourself standing in the way of sinners, doing what sinners do and feeling comfortable about it. Next, you will find yourself sitting and keeping company with those who scorn God. It is a downward progression, says Pastor Flemons. It will end in destruction and eternal loss.
When you make a full commitment to God and delight in His law, then your character will manifest meekness, kindness, and courtesy in and outside of the home. “Meekness,” says Pastor Flemons, “is the humility you maintain when you are done wrong.” And when you are born of the Holy Spirit, you will manifest the fruit of the Holy Spirit upon the heart.
The fruit is inner beauty shining out. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance (self-control). Inner beauty shining out is a powerful part of the recipe for success. The resulting promise is prosperity in every way.
The person who prospers in this way, according to God’s principles, can be assured that “his leaf shall not wither.” In other words, whatever you do will prosper. Leaves, says Pastor Flemons, represent outer principles that should spring forth from within. When people first see you, there must be a signal that you belong to Christ, that you are a Christian. And at every stage of your faithful Christianity, God will prosper you, as He did with Joseph in Egypt: in Potiphar’s house, in the prison, and as governor of Egypt. In the same way, when you are faithful to God, you will have the favor of God.

Worship: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, reviewed the 10-point principle of biblical wellness.
The 10-point principle is encapsulated in the acronym REFRESHING. R is Rely on God. It relieves stress that would otherwise kill you. E is Eat healthy. You must eat a plant-based diet; it adds years to our lives. F is Fresh air. A continual supply of fresh air invigorates the blood. R is Rest. You must rest nightly by 9:30. In this way, the body is renewed to function the next day. E is Exercise! Vigorously exercising five times a week helps keep the blood strong and free of toxins. S is Self-control. Avoiding all harmful things and only doing in moderation those things that are good is essential to maintaining a healthy body and mind. H is H2O, drink water. Drinking in ounces half of your body weight in pounds is to be your daily minimum intake. It is essential for all channels of elimination. I is In the sun. Twenty minutes of sunlight is daily recommended. This is how you get your vitamin D, build your immune system, and lock calcium in your bones. N is Never give up. You must persevere. And the G is Give to others. God promises a special blessing to givers.
