Following be careful who you listen to and where you are (Psalm 1-2) is a painful Psalm 3. David is on the run, betrayed by many, even his own son. I see the word selah appearing three times. The word encourages me to stop and think, “Could it be true?”
…many are saying of my soul, “There is no salvation for him in God.”Selah Could it be true? Of course, it isn’t. I must be careful to listen to the right voice. Even my heart might betray me.
But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. I cried aloud to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah Could this be true? Stop and think. Oh, yes, this is marvelously true for me at all times.
Salvation belongs to the Lord; your blessing be on your people! Selah Could this be true? Stop and think. Yes! I am greatly blessed in every way.
Lord, help me listen to your voice alone and open my heart to embrace what is true, regardless of my situations.
