The Word: Towdah (to-daw)

· Towdah is defined as an extension of the hand, that is, (by implication) avowal, or (usually) adoration; specifically, a choir of worshippers: - confession, (sacrifice of) praise, thanks (-giving, offering)

· Often translated “thanksgiving” or “thank offering” (Psalm 26:7, Psalm 100:4)

· The uniqueness of this word is that the giving of thanks is often in expectation of what God will do, not for the present circumstances – praise given in faith (Psalm 69:1-3, 30, Psalm 116:3, Psalm 116:17)

The Stories – David in Gath (I Samuel 21); Jonah in the Fish (Jonah 2)

The Takeaways:

· Towdah is the praise of faith – the expectation of God’s blessing

1. Towdah praise is anchored in the faith of WHO we believe Him to be

2. Towdah praise is anchored in the knowledge of what He has already done for us (Romans 8:31, 32)

· The hardest place to praise Him is the dark places

· To give thanks in the middle of the storm is both the greatest praise we can give God and the greatest relief to our souls

· Do you need to towdah Him today?
