40 Days of the Shofar – Day 34 Teaching and Scripture
Shevarim (pronounced sh-VAW-reem), is a tekiah broken into three one-second segments. The sound of the shevarim means “broken ones” or “breakings.” This hints to the breakthrough God has for us especially during the appointed fall season. It’s a reminder of ‘teshuvah,’ when we return to God and fulfill the potential we have in Him. It’s a time to examine ourselves in how we are treating our relationship with God and with others. The Lord wants to help us break free from negativity, selfishness and any hardness of ego and pride. When the shofar is sounded as a weapon of our warfare it will begin to scatter these and other enemies and begin to release a powerful spiritual breakthrough in our lives. This is always accompanied by a return to tzedakah-when we reach out to others with acts of kindness, benevolence and blessing.
