Today, Magnify The Lord.

Today, magnify the Lord Thu, 22 Jul 2021 ‘Magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.’ Psalm 34:3 Notice two things about the Lord’s Prayer. It begins with the words, ‘Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name’ (Matthew 6:9 KJV), and ends with: ‘Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.’ (Matthew 6:13 KJV) God wants you to begin and end your prayers thinking of Him. Why? Because it does you twice as much good to focus on God as it does to focus on anyone or anything else! When you magnify an object, you enlarge it so that you can see and understand it more. When we magnify God, we do the same thing. We enlarge our awareness of Him, so we can understand Him more. This is what happens when we worship Him—we take our minds off ourselves and set them on God. We put the emphasis on Him. And as we do, as we look closer and deepen our focus on Him, we begin to realise how majestic and glorious He is, how full of grace and truth. We appreciate Him more and our relationship with Him is strengthened. We discover that the King of the universe loves us! Paul wrote: ‘Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.’ (1 Timothy 1:17 NIV) Let that be our prayer too as we magnify the Lord together and say, ‘Lord, You not only rule the universe, you rule my heart!’
