Oh, Magnify the Lord with Me

Posted by on January 1, 2013

Is God big enough?

2013. A new year has begun. I’m at a point in life where I feel that my problems are overwhelming my joy. My weakness is overtaking my strength.

Is God big enough?

During the Christmas season I was reminded of Mary’s words when she was presented with the overwhelming task of mothering the Son of God: “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior!” (Luke 1:46-47)

Is God big enough?

Our human minds cannot grasp the size or power of Elohim. As a result, we minimize Him into our lives so that He seems more understandable. But when we are the center of our own universe, the trials we face have the power to loom over our heads and threaten to overtake us.

I am being challenged, instead, to magnify God to His rightful position and power, to make Him large in my life, even though everything does not necessarily make sense. When God is magnified in my life, my problems are not as overwhelming. Instead, I see that they are controlled by the loving hands of Elohim, the Creator of the universe, for His glory and my good.

Psalm 34:3 “Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together!”
