    God take cares of his own. we may loose our home, our families, our Job all of our worldly position. we must still trust God, by giving him praise and worship. if God can give us good gifts , whenever the trials come just remember who gives the gift. there are no trials that come upon us that God will not sustained us. He knows what we can handle . the devil is a loser.

    Hello Heidi; In composition of both music and prose; Selah indicates a pause or rest. It adds to understanding the Psalms by forcing you to pause to meditate.
  • Heidi
    I am new at studying the word I have a question that may sound stupid but I keep seeing this word Selah, what does this mean or stand for.
