Advent Day 9 – Monday, December 4
When I think of Magnify in relationship to God, I think of Bible verses–
“But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you, may those who love your salvation always say, let God be magnified.” Psalm 70:4
“O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.” Psalm 34:3
“I will praise the name of God with song, and will magnify him with Thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30
I think of song verses–
“O Magnify the Lord for he is worthy to be praised.” (“O Magnify the Lord.”)
“For who you are and what you’ve done, we magnify the name of Jesus Christ the Lamb upon the throne.” (“Magnify.”)
“Hallelujah, praise the Lord. You are worthy to be praised. I love Jesus and I magnify your name.” (“Magnify Your Name.”)
I get goose bumps every time I hear these verses or sing these songs. But, as I grow older, I have come to appreciate God’s mightiness not in relation to the enormity of his presence but in the small things he has created. He wants us to know praising him can be simple-
Being kind to your neighbor – Holding the hand of a child – Hugging a friend
Thanking someone – Calling or texting just to say hi – Petting your dog or cat – Saying a prayer – Forgiving someone – Smiling at a stranger on the street – Making a meal for someone “just because”
He is so powerful…so impactful…so magnificent. Praise God, praise God in all that we do. Thanks be to God! Amen!
