Selah is a word often found in the book of Psalms and a few other places in the bible.
There are several different meanings of the word selah. Some of these meanings include
pause, end, loud strain, and silence.
Have your ever noticed the word selah in your bible reading? Some examples include
Pausing to reflect on parts of Gods word that are revealed to us in regard to our current
needs is essential to placing that word in our hearts. Romans 10:17 tells that our faith
will come by hearing the word of God. Therefore, we need to hear and read for
ourselves the word of God. His word was never meant to be read as cliff notes,
but broken down verse by verse and made applicable to our daily lives.
Where else can we take a pause to reflect on our surroundings? I think that we should all
take a daily selah. The world tells us that doing so is a waste of time, but putting that
time aside to reflect on our decisions is essential to making sure the we remain in
alignment with God’s direction for our lives. Today lets selah (pause/be in silence) and
hear His voice.
