Pause is the word the Greek translation of the Bible uses for selah.
"Many there be which say of my soul, "There is no help for him in God."
But Thou, O Lord, art my helper, my Glory and the lifter of my head!"
Psalm 3:2 SEPTUAGINT
We have all be subjected to the wearying voices which flood the very atmosphere around us "There is no help..." The voices murmur and mutter the same words over and over, "There is no help..."
But, because you and I are in God, we need not listen:
"There is no help...," they repeat.
"But You, O Lord, are my helper!"
So let us fill all of our pauses with praise! Let us give all that lies within us not to the voices of the enemy, but to pure praise, to pure loving adoration, and to worship from a grateful heart!
My Father, train the NEEMA girls souls, today to pause. When the enemy attacks, hurling words that cause them to take their eyes off of You... when they feel weak, helpless to do anything but fail again. That they will stop. They will look up. No matter what comes, they will say, "But You, O Lord, are my helper!"
