David:   Psalm 69:1-4,10-18,29-33

David gave God TOWDAH praise while surrounded by enemies.

Jonah gave God TOWDAH praise from the bottom of the sea.

Magi gave God TOWDAH praise after 400 years of silence.

Will I give God TOWDAH praise?


 The beauty of TOWDAH is that we can practice it no matter what’s going on in life.

The confidence of TOWDAH we draw from God’s past faithfulness.


Is my relationship with God deep enough and strong enough that I can praise God BEFORE I get what I want from Him?
