Psalm 70:4 “Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.”

Can you imagine a god that is so small and insignificant that you have to get out a magnifying glass to see him. Imagine if that was your god, what would prayer look and sound like?

I can envision you getting out your microscope, getting down on your knees, pressing your eye up against the eyepiece, and trying to focus. Perhaps your prayer would sound something like this:

“God, I know you are in there somewhere, and I know you can hear me, because my voice must seem loud to you. I have so many things to pray about, and I wish you could help me, but I know you are too small to do anything about them…”

This may sound funny, but that’s what so many people do. God is not rightly sized in their hearts and minds. They make the mistake of believing that God is little because their own faith is so small. I cannot blame them for not praying if their god is that small.

However, David understood that God is not small, God is great, and He alone is worthy of Glory, Honor, Power, and Praise! In the book of Job God gives us a sense of how big he is when he asked Job in:

Job 38:1-11 “Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? 3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. 4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. 5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? 6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; 7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb? 9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it, 10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors, 11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?”

What problems are you facing today that are beyond your ability to solve, what fears, what trials, what heartaches? Magnify the Lord, praise and thank Him for all that He is and has done in your life. When you magnify God, God takes notice of it, your faith is increased, and God gets glory. When you pray, realize how small you are, how big God is, and how much He loves you.

Psalm 70:4 “Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.”
