“O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” Psalm 34:3
I can remember times that as children we would get a magnifying glass and put our hand underneath it or look at some insect or other object under it. We thought it was so cool as to how that glass would not only make the image larger, but it would also show in greater detail what we were looking at. We could see the lines in our hands more clearly or see in greater detail the pores in our skin, or we could see things on an insect that we couldn’t make out without that magnifying glass. Nothing else could be seen except for what was being looked at under that glass. How interesting it is that the Bible tells us to magnify the Lord. In all of the various things that we have to deal with in life, the Scripture encourages us to look at the Lord through the magnifying glass, not the challenges of life. Magnifying the Lord is giving Him the biggest place in our minds. We are to focus on the goodness of God to us through exalting His name. We are to see His mercy, His help, His protection, His provision, His answers and His faithfulness. When we set our minds on Him in this manner, He will always be larger than anything that we are dealing with. Hallelujah!
