Saturday Selah

I want you to stop for a second.

Pause from your routine for just a moment, and think.

Think about what?

FullSizeRender (1)Think about the truths of God’s Word as found in 71 different verses within the Psalms, each one ending with the word Selah.

To the best of our understanding, Selah is a musical notation. But when it comes to its specific purpose, scholars are not entirely sure. However, the general consensus is that where Selah was inserted, there the singers were to pause, to rest, or possibly even to reflect on what was just sung (the the book of Psalms is a collection of songs).

Therefore, each Saturday after this I want to encourage you – and myself – with some truths which are worth pondering.

Next week we will look at Psalm 3:2:

“Many there be which say of my soul, ‘There is no help for him in God.’ Selah.”

Will you be able to pause for moment? See you next Saturday!
