David Allen, recalling the unexpected victory of farmer Cliff Young in a 543.7-mile ultra-marathon, notes that "victory in the Christian life comes through endurance."
FIRST-PERSON: Pause and think of that!
David Allen reflects on a Hebrew word in Psalm 46 that conveys hope to the faithful --"Selah," which can be interpreted as "Pause and think of that!" When Psalm 46 speaks times of tumult, Allen points to its Selah reassurances of God's presence and help.
