But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
Most scholars believe the word “Selah” means to “pause and praise.” The book of Psalms was used as a hymn book for the Israelites. This meant they were instructed to stop or pause their singing. Then they were to think about what they were saying, and out of an overflowing heart, praise God! That’s good advice for us! Would you pause, re-read the above verse, and just praise GOD for a few moments? Is there anything better than knowing you and your future are secure in God? That should LIFT your heart and put a smile on your face!
