Psalm 81:3 says “Blow the ram’s horn at new moon, and again at full moon to call a festival!” (NLT).
Today my Pastor explained what it means to blow the ram’s horn at new moon and full moon. He said, life is full of events. There are times when we experience severe darkness. It is during this time, when we feel sad and we are down and we feel that nothing is happening for us. It is may be a time when we have lost our loved ones or lost our job or lost something that is dear to us. The scripture says even during this time, we need to stay positive and praise God. Job was a rich person who had everything he ever wanted. One day he lost it all. In Job 1:21 He said, “I came naked from my mother’s womb, and I will be naked when I leave. The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord!” Wow, he just praised God when he lost everything. We read later in the book of Job that God restores everything back to him. In fact, he increased all that Job had twofold (Job 42:10).
Full moon, are times when we have been blessed to the max. It is very easy during this time to forget what God has done for us and be absolutely soaked in the blessing, so much that we lose sight of our heavenly father. I have had times in my life when I have absolutely forgotten God and those were times when I had everything I could imagine. God brought me back to square one. I can’t say I lost everything but I have certainly been brought back to a situation where I have no one except Him. It is important that we praise our Father during the full moon even when we are in the best of our situations.
I hope these words are a blessing to you as they have been a blessing to me. If you have any comments, you are welcome to put them down below. Thank you for reading.
