Selah

This morning I head a noise outside my office window and when I turned to see who was creating such a ruckus, I discovered a loud "chatty"Cardinal sitting in my oak tree. The wind was whipping the branches and ruffling his feathers, but he didn't seem to mind at all.


"All the earth will worship You, and will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name. Selah" Psalm 66:4
I love the word Selah, don't you? It's in the Bible 76 times! Maybe not as many as some words, but I'm thinking it's important enough to take note.

Selah - (n.) A word of doubtful meaning, occurring frequently in the Psalms; by some, supposed to signify silence or a pause in the musical performance of the song.

I'm thinking that whenever I see the word in scripture, I should understand that the Lord is exhorting me to 'weigh' these things thoughtfully, and to reflect and consider in good sense judgment, what is 'really' being said. I should take the time to pause and meditate on what's being said. Give it time to sink into my soul. I think I need a LOT MORE Selah in my life!!!!
