The clapping of your hands has a purpose.
Taqa The Hebrew word taqa, here translated "clap" means to make all kinds of noise: "... clatter, clang, sound blow (trumpets), clap, strike. Clap, applaud. It Expresses joy and victory
Oh, Clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph! For the Lord Most High is awesome; He is a great King over all the earth."(Psalm 47:1,2)
In verse one, the word "clap" is derived from "taqa" (tah-kah); Strong's Concordance # 8628. It means "to clatter, clang, sound, blow (trumpets), clap, strike." It occurs more than 65 times.
And so when you clap your hands you are saying, “IT IS SO!” So your clapping is a confession and you are professing at the end or within your praise LET IT BE SO!
