Today’s Scripture and Thought

Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms
. Psalm 95:2

The word Hebrew word used in this verse for giving thanks with joy is Towdah

Strong’s #8426: towdah (pronounced to-daw’)

from 3034; properly, an extension of the hand, i.e. (by implication) avowal, or (usually) adoration; specifically, a choir of worshippers:–confession, (sacrifice of) praise, thanks(-giving, offering).

This word is very similar to yadah, but has a slightly different flavor. It means to show agreement with by extending the right hand. In today’s society the closest thing we have is a handshake to seal a deal or pact. The idea is that it is usually associated with sacrifice (specifically things given up to show thankfulness to God).

Scriptures to reference: Psalm 50:23 (the thank offering NIV, KJV uses the phrase praiseth)

When we share this, we get them to visualize offering our thanks to God (and our agreement with His promises) by visualizing the extended hand. You could use a handshake, if so have people imagine they are shaking hands with God. Or you could have people lift their hands (similar to the yadah, but instead of surrender the underlying notion is thankfulness and agreement).
