Today’s Scripture and Thought

But You are holy,
Enthroned in the praises of Israel.
Psalm 22:3

The Hebrew word for a joyful hymn of praise is Tehillah

Tehillah (tel-hil-law’) 8416

1. praise, song or hymn of praise
a. praise, adoration, thanksgiving (paid to God)
b. act of general or public praise
c. praise-song (as title)
d. praise (demanded by qualities or deeds or attributes of God)
e. renown, fame, glory
1. of Damascus, God
2. object of praise, possessor of renown (fig)

This type of praise is singing, but not just any type of singing. It’s the singing that bubbles up from our hearts. It’s a spontaneous type of singing. These songs are unrehearsed and unprepared. They are straight to God.

Scriptures to reference: Psalm 22:3 (these are the types of “praises” that God enthrones or inhabits, which is interesting because it’s so specific: God literally lives in the SPONTANEOUS praises of His people!); Psalm 33:1 (this type of praise is “fitting” for God’s people, or it literally makes them “look good”); When Isaiah talks about trading garments of ashes and mourning for garments of joy and praise, the word praise their literally means SPONTANEOUS praises!)

This is also a tough one to get people to just do because of the spontaneous nature of it. But you could have everyone on the count of three to stand up and just blurt out a praise to God! That would illustrate it. It would be coordinated, but each person would be “praising” spontaneously.
