Welcome to the very first Selah Sunday post ever! I am so excited for these weekly posts. They’re going to be short and easily digestible.
“What’s Selah Sunday?” you may ask? Well here it is.
Selah means to pause and reflect. We’re going to pause and reflect on one verse from the Bible every Sunday. Sunday is traditionally dedicated to being your “sabbath” day. A sabbath is a one day of the week that you dedicate to rest and worship to Christ. Put it together and you’ve got Selah Sunday!
The verse that we’re going to focus on today is Psalms Chapter 5 verse 11(NIV).
“But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”
Question: How do you feel after reading this verse?
First it says, “But let all who take refuge in you be glad…” . This is talking about finding safety, shelter, and sanctuary in Jesus. When you make a home in the presence of God, you will be filled with joy. True joy and gladness comes from being in the presence of God.
Question: Where’s your home built? In other words, what is the foundation of who you are built on?
Next it says, “let them ever sing for joy.”. When you’re steadily in the presence of God, you can’t help but to sing praises to Him! Being in the presence of God means to invite Him in with worship, and read His word. In doing that, He will reveal so many beautiful things about Himself that you’ll want to lift Him up with a joyful noise!
Then it says, “Spread your protection over them...”. God will protect His children. He is a divine shield for us. You are never without protection when you have faith in God.
Lastly, it says, “that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”. There’s an eternal list of things to rejoice about when you think of just how awesome God is. Pick one or pick a few and get your worship on!
Question: Do you invite the Lord in with worship?
That’s all for today’s Selah Sunday. I pray this blessed you this afternoon and that it helped to grow your faith in Christ.
Happy Sunday Believer’s!
Peace and Blessings
