A String of Selah Pearls - Psalm 77:14-15

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 77:14-15 “You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.  With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.  Selah.”


Now we’re talking!  Now we’re remembering who you are, what you did for your people in former days, and what you are capable of doing for us.

You made the world and everything in it.  You spoke and there was light.  You made man, loved us, forgave us, died for us.  You healed the sick and raised the dead.  You turned water into wine, calmed the seas, moved mountains. You opened peoples’ eyes and their hearts. You redeemed your people. You redeemed me! 

 You are a miracle worker!

A miracle for me would be the redemption of my people, my loved ones.  Another miracle would be a display of your power among the peoples, so all the world would know that YOU ARE GOD!

Please, Father.  Remember me with a miracle.  I’m your daughter, the one in whom you delight, the one who calls collect and you always accept the charges, your princess.

“All in due time, my miracle child.”


Look up: I Corinthians 15:8; Galatians 4:3-6; Philippians 2:10-11


  1. I easily forget that God delights in me. What a sweet, undeserved thing. And I feel like God has already given me two miracles: a wonderful husband and a little baby growing inside! I prayed for years for those two things! God is so good. Thanks for the devotional, Julie.

  2. Isn't it good to remember how precious we are in His sight. We are the apple of His eye. And, yes, He gives us the desires of our hearts. Can't wait to see your little one, Rachelle!!!
