I know how Mondays can get, I know how sometimes your mood on Monday can be carried through the entire week and I also know that Mondays demand good music!! So I’m bringing you Tehillah.
Tehillah refers to ‘that praise that the Lord inhabits’ (Psalm 22:3). It refers to the praise that confuses the enemy! It’s the kind of praise that seems like foolishness to the unbeliever. That’s Tehillah! Praise doesn’t refer to tempo of the music. I know for most of us Ghanaians, when the tempo is fast it’s praise but when it’s slow it’s worship (lol) but Praise is to honour, worship,extol and be thankful to God regardless of the tempo or manner. Let me stop here before my talkative self turns this into a sermon (lol). Tehillah fits so well with this section because I pray each Monday you come here, you would let loose to adore and make a joyful noise in celebration of the goodness of Our Father.
I would hopefully be sharing with you some of my favourite songs, playlists or albums. With time, I pray you’d stop by The August Crusader every Monday morning to get a little dose of divinity through music to start your week right.
I chose to do a review of this song as my introductory post for Tehillah because its one of my favourite songs ever! It is Touch the Sky by Hillsong from their 2015 album Empire. You can check it out here. They recently did a remake of it on their new album: Of Dirt and Grace.
This song found me at the absolute right time! It is about worship for me. It’s about surrender; it’s more than words being sang over rhythm. It is about relinquishing your will for Gods will. It is about being tired of trying to exalt yourself or elevate yourself. It expresses throwing yourself at His feet because He’s the only one who can satisfy and bring us to the realization that God gave us precious Jesus to pay the price for our hearts. To be truly elevated is to fall on your knees, surrender your being, mind, soul and body to the King of kings.
This song reminds me of what’s important… Laying your life down at His feet, saying God I have remembered that I am yours…. Use me! It translates the conversation from Lord GIVE me to God MAKE me so You can use me. If you haven’t already heard this song, I pray it blesses you as much as it blessed me.
Until next Monday stay blessed!
