									THE SECRETS OF A SURRENDERED HEART

A SELAH MOMENT

OUR SECOND STUDY ON THE SECRETS OF A SURRENDERED HEART TAKE US
TO THE THIRD CHAPTER OF PSALMS.

THE HEADLINE IF YOU WILL OF THIS PSALM WAS "A PSALM OF DAVID, WHEN
HE FLED FROM ABSALOM HIS SON.

THIS CHAPTER WAS WRITTEN BY KING DAVID WHEN HE WAS RUNNING FOR
HIS LIFE.

HE WASN'T RUNNING FROM THE PHILISTINES, THE AMALEKITES, OR ANY OF
THE OTHER SWORN ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

BUT HE WAS RUNNING FROM HIS OWN FLESH AND BLOOD.

ISN'T FUNNY THAT TIME IN OUR LIVES WE HAVE TO FIGHT ENEMIES, OUTSIDE
FORCES, THE DEVIL, THE WORLD, SIN, ECONOMICAL SETBACKS.

BUT THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE FIND OURSELVES IN BATTLES WITH THOSE
THAT WE LOVE, THOSE THAT ARE CLOSEST TO US, THOSE THAT ARE
PERHAPS OUR OWN RELATIVES, BEST FRIENDS, OUR BROTHERS AND
SISTERS IN CHRIST.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT TODAY.

KING DAVID, A MAN THAT FINALLY AFTER YEARS OF RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE,
FROM THE JEALOUS KING SAUL, HAS FINALLY SETTLED DOWN IN HIS
KINGDOM.

21 TIMES GOD DELIVERED HIM FROM THE ASSASINATION ATTEMPTS OF THE
RAGING INSECURE SAUL.

HE HAD TO LIVE IN CAVES AND SCAVENGER FOR FOOD FOR HIS MEN.

SOME OF THE MEN THAT WERE PART OF HIS ARMY WERE MISFITS AND THE
BIBLE SAID SOME WERE THE SONS OF BELIAL

BELIAL MEANS WORTHLESS, GOOD FOR NOTHING, UNPROFITABLE, UNGODLY
PEOPLE

THE NEW TESTAMENT DEFINITION SAID IT'S A NAME FOR SATAN

SO DAVID WAS CHASED AS A CRIMINAL, THOUGH HE WAS INNOCENT



                                                                       1
IN THE POST OFFICE YOU COULD FIND HIS PAINTED PICTURE, AS THERE
WERE NO CAMERAS YET

HE WAS ON ISRAEL'S MOST WANTED SHOW, WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE


THIS WAS THE SAME MAN THAT HAD SLAYED THE GIANT GOLIATH AND THE
PEOPLE SANG OF HIS VICTORY,

SAUL HAS SLAIN THOUSANDS AND DAVID TEN THOUSANDS.

NOW HE'S RUNNING FOR SAFETY NOT JUST FOR HIMSELF BUT ALSO HIS
FAMILY.

BUT ONE THING WAS FOR SURE, GOD NEVER LEFT HIM.

TODAY IN OUR SERIES SECRETS TO SURRENDER I WANT TO SPEAK ON
YIELDING EVERYTHING TO GOD.

THERE IS A HEBREW WORD IN THE BIBLE THAT IS SELAH

DEF: SELAH, THIS WORD IS A TECHNICAL MUSICAL TERM

IT MEANS, ACCENTUATION, PAUSE OR INTERRUPTION
 .
IN OTHER WORDS IT MEANS TO YIELD FOR THREE DIFFERENT REASONS.

1. ACCENTUATE:

TO YIELD AND BRING CLARITY, AND TO ALLOW TO SOAR

2. PAUSE

TO YIELD AND ALLOW FOR REFLECTION

3. INTERUPT

TO YIELD WAY FOR A HIGHER PURPOSE

IN THIRD CHAPTER OF PSALMS THERE ARE THREE SELAH'S

AS WE SAID DAVID WROTE THIS PSALM WHEN HE FLED FROM HIS SON
ABSALOM.

WE ALL HAVE A GENERAL KNOWLEDGE OF DAVID THE KING OF ISRAEL, HE



                                                                  2
WAS THE SON OF JESSE, THE YOUNG MAN THAT TOOK CARE OF HIS
FATHERS SHEEP.

HE BECAME FAMOUS IN ONE OF THE MANY WARS WITH THE PHILISTINE
PEOPLE.

THE DAY HE SAID THOSE WORDS "IS THERE NOT A CAUSE"

WAS THE DAY HE CAME TO PROMINENCE.

WE FIND SOME INFORMATION ABOUT ABSALOM

ABSALOM WAS THE SON OF MAACAH THE DAUGHTER OF THE KING OF
GESHUR.

THE PEOPLE OF GESHUR WERE KNOWN BY THEIR NAME WHICH MEANS
"PROUD BEHOLDER"

FROM ABSALOM'S MOTHER'S SIDE WE SEE THE ENTRANCE OF PRIDE.

HERE WAS A YOUNG MAN THAT LACKED CAPACITY OR KNOWLEDGE AND
WISDOM TO BE KING BUT MADE UP FOR IT WITH HIS CHARM

BRIEFLY LETS LOOK AT THIS YOUNG MAN

1. HE WAS OF ROYAL DESCENT ON BOTH SIDES, FOR HIS MOTHER WAS A
KING'S DAUGHTER. HE WAS UNDOUBTEDLY THE HEIR TO HIS FATHER'S
THRONE AND HIS FATHER'S FAVORITE

2. HE WAS GIFTED AND HAD REMARKABLE PHYSICAL BEAUTY, II SAMUEL 14:25
SAID THERE WAS NO BLEMISH IN HIM.

3. HE ALSO POSSESSED A CHARM OF ELOQUENCE AND PERSUASIVENESS
WHICH WON HIM THE HEARTS OF ALL ISRAEL, WHO FELT THAT IN HIM THEY
HAD A GOD-SENT CHAMPION

4. HE HAD A TRAITOUROUS NATURE. ABSALOM MURDERED HIS BROTHER AND
WAS GUILTY OF DESIGNING OR PRETENDING TO BE POLITE TO THE POINT OF
CONSPIRING AGAINST HIS OWN FATHER

5. HE CAME TO AN UNTIMELY END, BECAUSE HE DID NOT HAVE THE PATIENCE
OR THE CHARACTER TO WAIT HIS TURN.

HIS NAME MEANS "MY FATHER IS PEACE"

HE WAS BORN OF A POLYGAMOUS MARRIAGE



                                                                    3
HE WAS THE THIRD BORN SON WHO WAS ALSO THE KILLER OF DAVID'S
FIRSTBORN SON AMNON.

SUMMARIZE WHAT DAVID WAS RUNNING FROM.

LOOK AT THE CHARACTERISTICS OF WHAT CHASES US.


BEFORE WE GET TO THE REVOLT OF ABSALOM I WANT TO ADDRESS THE
FACTS THAT SURROUND THE MURDER OF AMNON

HIS HALF BROTHER AMNON FELL IN LOVE WITH HIS SISTER.

TAMAR WOULD HAVE BEEN AMNON'S HALF SISTER AND ABSALOM'S FIRST
SISTER

AMNON RAPED HIS SISTER AFTER SAYING HE LOVED HER THEN TURNED
AROUND AND REJECTED HER.

HER BROTHER ABSALOM FOUND OUT AND TOOK MATTERS INTO HIS HANDS.

HE PLOTTED TO MURDER THE FIRST BORN SON OF DAVID.

AND HAD HIM KILLED.

BECAUSE HE MURDERED HIS BROTHER HE LIVED IN EXILE AWAY FROM
JERUSALEM


ABSALOM'S PROBLEM WAS THAT HE FELT HE HAD THE RIGHT TO MAKE THE
DECESIONS OF THE KING WITHOUT BEING THE KING

FOR INSTANCE SAUL WHEN HE STEPPED FROM HIS POSITION OF KING TO THE
POSITION OF PRIEST WITHOUT THE ANNOINTING SET HIS DOWNFALL IN
MOTION.

THIS HAPPENS IN CHURCHES AT TIMES ALSO, WHEN PEOPLE WANT TO BE
THE PASTOR, OR ONE OF THE LEADERS.

SO AS WE BEGIN THIS STUDY IN PSALMS CHAPTER THREE LET US REMEMBER
THAT SELAH MEANS

TO ACCENTUATE, A MOMENT OF CLARITY
TO PAUSE, A MOMENT FOR REFLECTION
TO INTERUPT, A MOMENT TO YIELD TO A HIGHER PURPOSE



                                                                  4
TELL SOMEONE NEXT TO YOU "YOU NEED A SELAH MOMENT"

LET'S LOOK AT PSALMS CHAPTER THREE

KJV Psalm 3:1 <A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.> LORD, how
are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. 2 Many there
be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.

R95 Psalm 3:1 <Salmo de David, cuando huía de delante de su hijo Absalón.> ¡Jehová,
cuánto se han multiplicado mis adversarios! Muchos son los que se levantan contra mí;
2 muchos son los que dicen de mí: "No hay para él salvación en Dios". Selah


IF ANYONE KNEW TROUBLE IT WAS DAVID.

BECAUSE OF HIS SIN WITH BATHSHEBA, URIAH'S WIFE THE PROPHET GAVE
HIM A LIST OF WHAT WOULD FACE HIM.

1. I SAMUEL 12:10 THE SWORD WILL NEVER DEPART FROM YOUR HOUSE.

OUR ACTIONS ACCORDING TO WHAT WE SEE IN THE LIFE OF DAVID, SET IN
MOTION SO MANY THINGS IN OUR LIVES.

FOUR OF DAVID'S SONS DIED. .

THE SON BY HIS ADULTERY WITH BATHSHEBA DIED
HIS SON AMNON WHO WAS HIS FIRSTBORN WAS KILLED BY ABSALOM.

EXPLAIN LAW AT TIME

KJV Leviticus 20:17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his
mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked
thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's
nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.

NLT Leviticus 20:17 "If a man has sexual intercourse with his sister, the daughter of
either his father or his mother, it is a terrible disgrace. Both of them must be publicly cut
off from the community. Since the man has had intercourse with his sister, he will suffer
the consequences of his guilt.

R95 Leviticus 20:17 "Si alguno toma a su hermana, hija de su padre o hija de su madre,
y ve su desnudez, y ella ve la suya, es cosa execrable; por tanto serán muertos a ojos
de los hijos de su pueblo; descubrió la desnudez de su hermana: cargará con su
pecado.




                                                                                            5
HIS SON ABSALOM WAS KILLED BY ONE OF HIS GENERALS
HIS OTHER SON ADONIJAH WAS KILLED BY HIS SON SOLOMON

2. ALSO THE PROPHET SAID THE LORD WOULD RAISE UP EVIL AGAINST HIM
VERSE 11

3. I WILL TAKE YOUR WIVES AND GIVE THEM TO YOUR NEIGHBORS VERSE 11

4. HE WILL LIE WITH YOUR WIVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE SUN

5. YOU COMMITED YOUR SIN WITH BATHSHEBA SECRETLY BUT I WILL DO IT
OPENLY

6. THE LORD HAS PUT AWAY YOUR SIN YOU SHALL NOT DIE

7. BECAUSE OF YOUR SIN YOU WILL CAUSE THE ENEMIES OF THE LORD TO
BLASPHEME

8. THE CHILD THAT IS BORN SHALL SURELY DIE

SO DAVID WAS WELL AWARE OF TROUBLE.

HE CRIED LORD "HOW THEY ARE INCREASED THAT TROUBLE ME!

MANY ARE THEY THAT RISE UP AGAINST ME.

BUT EVEN THOUGH TROUBLE WAS SURROUNDING HIM HE STILL BELIEVED
GOD WAS WITH HIM.

I. A SURRENDERED HEART WILL TRUST IN GOD IN TIMES OF ADVERSITY

GOD IS STILL GOD WHEN THE BOAT IS ROCKING
GOD IS STILL GOD WHEN TERRORIST SMASH PLANES INTO TOWERS
GOD IS STILL GOD WHEN THEY PLAN TO KILL ANOTHER 4,500 PEOPLE.

DAVID SAID IN VERSE 3

3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. 4 I
cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.

R95 Psalm 3:3 Mas tú, Jehová, eres escudo alrededor de mí; mi gloria, y el que levanta
mi cabeza. 4 Con mi voz clamé a Jehová y él me respondió desde su monte santo.
Selah




                                                                                         6
EVERYBODY SAY SELAH

IN ADVERSITY GOD IS YOUR

SHIELD
YOUR GLORY
THE LIFTER OF YOUR HEAD

YOU REMEMBER AS CHILDREN WE WERE TOLD JUST KEEP YOUR CHIN UP.

GOD IS OUR SHIELD, GOD IS OUR GLORY, GOD IS THE LIFTER UP OF OUR
HEAD BUT DAVID KNEW HOW TO ACCENTUATE THIS IN VERSE FOUR SAID

"I CRIED UNTO THE LORD WITH MY VOICE, AND HE HEARD ME OUT OF HIS
HOLY HILL"

SELAH

WHEN TROUBLE IS SURROUNDING-SEALAH
WHEN PEOPLE ARE RISING UP AGAINST YOU-SELAH
WHEN OTHERS ARE SAYING THERE IS NO HELP FROM GOD-SELAH

IT'S TIME TO PAUSE.

YOU SEE TROUBLE MANY TIMES IS A SIGN OF A DEFINING MOMENT FOR YOUR
LIFE.

A SELAH MOMENT

A MOMENT TO ACCENTUATE YOUR WORSHIP AND PRAISE TO THE LORD

A MOMENT TO PAUSE AND REFLECT ON WHERE GOD HAS BROUGHT YOU
FROM

A MOMENT TO INTERUPT YOUR LIFE FOR A HEAVENLY INTERVENTION.


IF YOU NOTICE THROUGH SCRIPTURE HOW MANY TIMES GOD REMINDED THE
PEOPLE OF HOW HE BROUGHT THEM OUT OF EGYPT.

THROUGH THE RED SEA, HOW HE FED THEM IN THE WILDERNESS.

I BELIEVE MANY TIMES PEOPLE FALL SHORT BECAUSE WE FORGET WHAT THE
LORD HAS DONE.

DO YOU KNOW THAT MANY TIMES OUR SCHEDULED ARE SO FULL THAT GOD



                                                                   7
DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO US.

WE HAVE TIME FOR LEISURE, WE HAVE TIME FOR PLEASURE, WE HAVE TIME
FOR RELATIONSHIPS THAT SPAN THE NATIONS,

BUT WE HAVE LOST TIME FOR GOD.

WHAT WE NEED IS TO KNOW THAT GOD IS OUR SHIELD AND DEFENSE

THERE IS A SONG FRED HAMMOND SINGS

JESUS BE A FENCE ALL AROUND ME EVERYDAY

A FENCE OF PROTECTION
A BOUNDARY BETWEEN ME A EVIL

WHEN DAVID SAID MY GLORY IT SPEAKS OF HIS HONOUR AND REPUTATION.

PEOPLE WILL TRY TO DESTROY YOUR REPUTATION, TEAR YOU DOWN
BECAUSE THEY CAN'T STAND THAT EVERYTHING THEY HATE ABOUT GOD IS
SEEN IN YOU.

TO SOMEONE HERE TODAY THAT'S DEALING WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE HOSTILE
AND HATEFUL, I SAY DON'T TAKE IT PERSONAL.

KJV Luke 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate
you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the
Son of man's sake. 23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward
is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

NLT Luke 6:22 God blesses you who are hated and excluded and mocked and cursed
because you are identified with me, the Son of Man. 23 "When that happens, rejoice!
Yes, leap for joy! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient
prophets were also treated that way by your ancestors.

R95 Luke 6:22 Bienaventurados seréis cuando los hombres os odien, os aparten de sí,
os insulten y desechen vuestro nombre como malo por causa del Hijo del hombre. 23
"Gozaos en aquel día y alegraos, porque vuestra recompensa es grande en los cielos,
porque así hacían sus padres con los profetas.

THE NEW LIVING TRANSLATION READS : GOD BLESSES YOU WHO ARE HATED
AND EXCLUDED AND MOCKED AND CURSED BECAUSE YOU ARE IDENTIFIED
WITH ME, THE SON OF MAN

BRING IT ON, SAY WHAT YOU WILL, I'M BLESSED.




                                                                                        8
I'M IN A SELAH MOMENT

DESIGNED TO OVERCOME

PREPARED FOR GREATNESS

A CHAMPION IN HEART

CONTINUE IN VERSE 5

WHEN WE LOOK AT VERSE 5 LET US REMEMBER HE IS ON THE RUN FROM HIS
SON.

BUT EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THOSE DIRE TIMES DAVID WAS ABLE TO FIND
REST IN THE LORD.

5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me. 6 I will not be afraid
of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

R95 Psalm 3:5 Yo me acosté y dormí, y desperté, porque Jehová me sustentaba. 6 No
temeré ni a una gran multitud que ponga sitio contra mí.


DAVID DID NOT ALLOW THE CONFUSION AROUND HIM TO ROB HIM OF HIS
PEACE OF MIND

DENISE CASTILLO TESTIMONY OF HER BUMBER STICKER

DAVID ALSO SAID EVEN IF 10,000'S PLURAL WHICH WOULD BE IN THE MILLIONS

DON'T BE AFRAID IF YOUR SURROUNDED, IF TROUBLE IS ON ALL SIDES.

KJV Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret
of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

NLT Psalm 27:5 For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his
sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.

R95 Psalm 27:5 Él me esconderá en su Tabernáculo en el día del mal; me ocultará en
lo reservado de su morada; sobre una roca me pondrá en alto.

VERSE 7

 7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the
cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. 8 Salvation belongeth unto the
LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.



                                                                                            9
R95 Psalm 3:7 ¡Levántate, Jehová! ¡Sálvame, Dios mío! Tú heriste a todos mis
enemigos en la mejilla; los dientes de los perversos rompiste. 8 La salvación es de
Jehová. ¡Sobre tu pueblo sea tu bendición! Selah


WHEN GOD SAVES YOU IT'S TIME FOR A SELAH MOMENT

THE WRITINGS OF DAVID ARE OF A MAN THAT HATES EVIL.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE IN HERE HAVE BOXED, BUT I GREW UP
BOXING ALOT.

I'VE BOXED WITH PEOPLE BIGGER THAN ME.

AND ONE THING THAT HURTS IS WHEN YOU GET HIT ON THE CHEEKBONE.

DAVID SAID THAT THE LORD SMIT OR SLAPPED ALL HIS ENEMIES UPON THE
CHEEK BONE.

THE PASTOR SAM VERSION NEW INTERNATIONAL HOOD VERSION

HE SOCKED ALL DAVID'S ENEMIES IN THE FACE.

SELAH- PAUSE

GOD WANTS YOU TO STOP AND THINK ABOUT HIM

GOD WANTS COMPLETE AND TOTAL SURRENDER OF YOUR HEART.

EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE THAT IS NOT SURRENDERED TO HIM, IS IN DANGER
OF LEAVING YOU.

IF YOU GIVE IT TO GOD

HE WILL BE SLAPPING YOUR ENEMIES ON THE CHEEKBONE
BREAKING THE TEETH OF THE UNGODLY

KJV Psalm 3:8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people.
Selah.

NLT Psalm 3:8 Victory comes from you, O LORD. May your blessings rest on your
people. Interlude

R95 Psalm 3:8 La salvación es de Jehová. ¡Sobre tu pueblo sea tu bendición! Selah




                                                                                      10
GOD WANTS US TO PAUSE

HAVE ANOTHER SELAH MOMENT CONCERNING THAT SALVATION BELONGS
TO HIM

THANK GOD FOR THAT. SALAVATION BELONGS TO THE LORD.

WHAT ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT, SALVATION BELONGS TO THE LORD.

THE DEVIL CAN'T SAVE YOU
MONEY CAN'T SAVE YOU
YOUR MOMMA CAN'T SAVE YOU
YOU DADDY, SISTER, BROTHER AND YOUR BOSS CAN'T SAVE YOU

BUT JESUS CAN AND WILL SAVE YOU.

HIS BLESSING IS UPON HIS PEOPLE

SELAH MOMENT FOR WORSHIP AND PRAISE

ACCENTUATE
PAUSE
INTERUPT YOURSELF AND SURRENDER TO GOD




                                                              11
