Magnify Him!

Written by on December 7, 2011

When you were a kid, did you have a magnifying glass? I did. I liked to examine ladybugs, leaves, twigs, and other bits of nature.

But the word magnify also means to glorify – to give praise. It’s in the DNA of our spirits to magnify the Lord.

When Mary greeted Elizabeth, John leaped in Elizabeth’s womb.  Elizabeth, too, was quickened and she became filled with the Holy Spirit in the presence of Jesus.

      Mary sang:

      “ My soul magnifies the Lord,
         And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
         For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
         For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.” 
                                                                 (Mary, in Luke 1:46-48)

       The song declared:

  • Magnification of the Lord.  Like a magnifying glass, glorifying God produces a revelation of truths – and enlarging while bringing them to light.
  • Mary’s spirit rejoiced in our Savior. Jesus came to save; to heal; to deliver.
  • A lowly state that birthed life for future generations.  A simple, humble spirit draws a continuous renewal of life in Christ.

And as we grow, our sense of God’s power and strength will be passed down generational lines. Actively pursuing a relationship with God – even as He pursues us – will draw His blessing, and become part of the inheritance we pass along to our sons and daughters.

What kinds of things have you enlarged with a magnifying glass?

What is the role of the Holy Spirit in magnifying, on days when everything seems to be going wrong?
