What Do You Magnify?
And Mary said, “My soul doeth magnify the Lord” Luke 1:46
What do you magnify? Magnify, according to Strong’s Concordance means, to make or declare great. Whatever we magnify becomes bigger and bigger in our mind. If you magnify a problem then you can’t see the solution, all you see is the problem. Think about Mary’s problem. The angel came to her and said, “You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son and shall call His name Jesus.” (Luke 1:31)
Mary’s response in Luke 1:38 was, “Behold, I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be to me according to what you have said.” She would soon be pregnant and unwed. That could have been a huge problem. But, Mary did not focus on the problem; her attention was on God. She trusted God! If this was of Him, He had the answer. So, she looked to the Lord and magnified Him!
Today, take your mind off your problem, focus on the Lord and His blessings. You will see the problem decrease and the Lord will be magnified.
