A String of Selah Pearls - Psalm 66:3-4
Positioned gracefully across the Book of Psalms is a string of seventy-one pearls, lovely beads of wisdom followed by the admonition SELAH which means, “Pause, think on these things, meditate.”
Psalm 66:3-4 “Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name. Selah.”
Until a relatively short time ago, the mighty wonders of the Old Testament God were known by all. Creation. The Flood. Plagues. Parting of the
Red Sea. Victories in the Promised Land. You could mention crossing the without needing to clarify that you were referring to the Bible—not a television series. Jordan
That was then. This is now. A foul wind has blown around the earth in an attempt to sweep God from our minds and hearts. But one day, possibly very soon, a blast from on high will reverse the current trends.
God will return and make things right. And those who love him will bow before his power, confess his holy name, and sing his praises. All will be well with the world . . . at last!
Look up: II Corinthians 4:4; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Philippians 2:5-11
