MAGNIFY THE LORD
And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” —Luke 1:46-47
Then Hannah prayed and said, “My heart exults in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD, My mouth speaks boldly against my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation. “There is no one holy like the LORD, Indeed, there is no one besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.” —I Samuel 2:1-2
What is the biggest focus in your life right now? Is it some problem you are dealing with— health, job, relationship or something else that just seems enormous and time consuming? Are you looking to the Lord for help or trying to figure things out yourself? Are you worrying about it or are you taking it to the Lord?
May we magnify the Lord and exult in the Him. “There is no one holy like the LORD, Indeed, there is no one besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.” Let not our problems be magnified in our lives, but may our Lord be magnified and may we keep the problems in proper perspective. This is not our home. Our home is in heaven. As with any trip there will be unexpected bumps along the way. Don’t let the bumps be magnified, let the One Who is preparing a place for us in heaven be magnified (John 14:1-6).
So if you are in a situation or a situation comes upon you today, let not the situation be magnified. Instead, magnify the Lord and trust Him for the situation.
Dear Father may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus, my Lord.
