"O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together." (Ps. 34:3)
It is either in weak moments, or in honest moments that I question whether I "magnify the Lord" very often. As a pastor, I'm paid to "magnify the Lord," but amidst the administrative responsibilities and the day-to-day challenges I regularly question how strong my magnification.
I am not alone. Throughout the Bible, in both Testaments, people of faith questioned whether their faith actually magnified the Lord. Over and over again, God used the weak to do miraculous work in order to magnify the Lord. The weaker and more unworthy you feel, the more you are able to magnify the Lord. All will know that it isn't you who performed the miraculous, but our magnificent God.
There have been many people throughout my life who have magnified the Lord. If anyone told them how their light shined, they would deny it in a heartbeat. We do not see our light shining. Perhaps it is God's way to keep us humble. Yet, we do magnify the Lord.
Today, think of a time or two in which others would say you made a difference in their lives. Feel the moment, smell the re-experience. Then thank God for having used you to magnify the Lord. Then, continue praying by asking God to use you again.
