Sound the Shofars (Trumpets)

"When you go to war in your land against an enemy who oppresses you, you shall sound short blasts of the trumpets, and you shall be remembered before Yahveh your Elohim, and you shall be saved from your enemies. On the days of your rejoicing and festivals you shall sound the trumpets, and they shall be a remembrance for you before Yahveh your Elohim."
Numbers 10:9-10

The occasions when the Word of God commands the public blowing of the shofars (trumpets) were ones of great sorrow on one hand, and great joy on the other. Times of sorrow and distress included war, epidemic and drought were a call to repentance and a reminder that sin brings sorrow and suffering. Thinking that such calamities are mere coincidences keeps people from changing and enables them to continue in their corrupt ways that brought the calamity on them in the first place.

The Word of God states that the Lord will heed the sounds of the trumpet (which denotes 'Praise') and show favor to his people - whether they are blown in sorrow or in joy, though in two different ways. In times of sorrow we are remembered before Yahveh (Lord) your Elohim (Highest God / God the Father). In times of happiness, however, the sounds of the shofar shall be a remembrance before Yahveh.

This scripture implies that either in sorrow or in happiness we should give praise to the Lord so as to receive His continual and perpetual favor.

A Prayer for Today
Lord, give me the courage to praise You not only at the times of rejoicings when your blessings are abundant on me, but also when I am sad or in trouble for you mercy still shadows me.
I want to praise You and thank You all the days of my life.
Amen.....Have a Jesus Filled Day!

God Bless!
