The Shofar Generation

29 Mar

The Shofar Generation…

Perhaps the most uniquely Biblical musical instrument is the shofar, the Hebrew trumpet fashioned out of a ram’s horn. The word “shofar” comes from the root word that means “clear”.

A shofar must make a clear sound; if there’s any obstruction, the sound will be hindered. You are called to be a vessel of God, an instrument of the Lord’s purposes. You are to be the Lord’s shofar and that means He has to be able to blow through you.

The word for “breath” in Hebrew is “ruach”. “Ruach” is also the word for “Spirit”. For you to be the Lord’s instrument, the Spirit of God must be blowing through you, but in order for the Spirit to blow through you, you have to be clear, you have to be free of obstructions.

Anything outside of God’s will, will obstruct the blowing of His breath. The Spirit of God will flow through you and for that to start happening you have to get those blockages out of your life.

For if anyone will cleanse himself from these things, he will be used of God, prepared for every good work, a vessel of honor.

And of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher. That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame because I know whom I have believed and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day. What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. 2 Timothy 1:11-14

Look inside yourself for any obstructions such as sin, selfishness, fear that would keep you from being a clear instrument for the Holy Spirit’s will for you to be used.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
