Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.
Magnify – to increase the apparent size; to make greater than. To intensify; make larger.
The Psalmist knew what he was talking about when in his excitement he said “Oh! Magnify the Lord with me! Trouble was a very familiar thing to David. Even when he became King he still had many troubles and yet he knew the secret of worshipping God!
He knew how to make God bigger than his problem.
Have you ever watch an ant carrying food to his abode? In most cases what is a crumb to us is larger than his entire body! Yet the size of that crumb does not deter that ant from staying focused on the task at hand. No matter the size of its “burden” the ant through divine instinct can bypass what it sees as a problem and fulfill its purpose.
When we have difficulties in life we may look at them as being insurmountable burdens that are too big to fix or carry, when in God’s eyes they look like crumbs! I thank Him for His mercy and grace that understands that we are but pitiful weaklings capable of doing nothing without Him. But as we worship Him and make Him bigger than the trial we may be going through, our burden becomes lighter, easier. God is so big, so awesome; we really cannot fathom His greatness. We can only worship Him and get a mere glimpse of how much bigger He is than our problems.
