Magnify The Lord With Me

“Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.”
Psalm 34:3 (NKJV)

We all know the reason why opticians prescribe reading glasses for some people—because the glasses magnify (enlarge) the printed word, and for some help to see a clearer distance.

I don’t see people carrying binoculars as they did many years ago, but theatre-goers would take small binoculars, or opera glasses, with them in order to magnify the performers to see them better. The size of the performers never changed with the aid of binoculars only the perception! In a similar way we can apply the same to our view of God. He fills the universe and there is no magnifying glass that can make Him larger than He is. However, Job said that we (Christians) are the tools which magnify God’s work which others behold. King David in the Bible said that God was magnified through our praise, singing and thanksgiving to God in Psalms 69:30 which says, “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.”

The Apostle Paul’s lifestyle of performing miracles and casting out evil spirits caused the name of the Lord to be magnified. Reading Acts 19:17, “This became known to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell upon them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.” Therefore, when we worship God through our praise, singing and thanksgiving we are magnifying God.

So join in to magnify the Lord with me, for Christians are the tools by which others can see the greatness of God more clearly.

Prayer
Eternal God, you are worthy to be magnified, you are big enough to hold the world in the palm of your hands, and small enough to live in the hearts of men. We pray and praise you in Jesus’ name.
Amen
