Selah

“Selah” is a word often used by David in the Psalms.  Not the easiest to translate in English.  It means something like “interlude,” or “stop and listen,” or “pause and think of that for a little while.” He wrote things like, “You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.”  Let’s have some music and think about this a while.  The more I think about it, the more my heart is filled with joy and hope.  Selah–I will pause and enjoy…

I need to Selah a lot more than I do.  I need to stop and listen to the birds in the early morning.  They remind me that the cycle of life never stops and that today is a new day full of promises.  I need to stop and think of that for a little while.  It would be beneficial for me to Selah over God’s rich blessings upon my life and every one of my very precious friends: Laura, and Danni, and Karen, and Valerie, and …
The more I Selah, the more I am encouraged.  The more I Selah, the more I am energized for the day.  To Selah is like drinking an endless glass of crisp water on a hot dry day.  It refreshes me down to my toes.
I will Selah over God’s purposes for my life.  I will Selah over the joy of this very moment.  I am alive to God, forgiven, treasured, provided for, filled with hope and driven by destiny.
Thank You Father for giving me the privilege of Selah.  May I never neglect it.
