Selah: Purpose In The Pause

In days of change and upheaval in the world, our need to seek the Lord and spend time in His presence has never been greater. In our journey through the Psalms, we have seen the word ‘selah’ mark a pause in the verses, to enable us to stop and reflect on what we’ve read. In this message we take a tour of seven psalms which show us why the selah is so important for each of us, and the strength and anointing which flow out of such times in the presence of the Lord. We also look at the illustrative story recorded by Luke, regarding two sisters, one of whom chose to busy herself in an effort to avoid her problems and one who chose instead to sit at Jesus’ feet.
