By Jayme Hull—

“Oh magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.” (Psalm 34:3 ESV)

How is your eyesight? Have you made God too small in your own eyes? Do you need some details in your life enlarged? Is your God big enough to handle the details or do you need a magnifying glass? Sometimes I need to apologize to God for my weak faith. How about you? Have you ever had any of the following conversations with God?

“I’m sorry God. I’ve made you too small in my eyes to handle this problem. Please forgive.”

“Oh, Lord! I did it again. I have believed in a lie from hell that You God are unable. I am so weak.”

“I can’t believe my foolishness Lord. Once again, I have listened to the others around me and totally ignored You the God of the Universe. I know Your Word says just the opposite of what the world is telling me. Please forgive me.”

Webster’s dictionary says the definition of magnify means to enlarge by holding closer to the eye. To enlarge your “field of view”; observe objects in greater detail. As I finished reading that definition I started shouting inside my heart, “That’s it! I need to enlarge my “field of view”. I need God’s perspective. Oh Lord, be MAGNIFIED!

“Your own eyes shall see this and you shall say; ”The Lord is great and will be magnified over and beyond the border of Israel!” (Malachi 1:5 AMP)

One of my favorite Christian Women Hero’s in history is Corrie ten Boom. Here are three quotes by her that are worth meditating on and writing on an index card to read and reread over the next few months.

“It is not my ability, but my response to God’s ability, that counts.”

“Dear Jesus…how foolish of me to have called for human help when You are here.”

“If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God you’ll be at rest.”

Today let’s keep our eyes on the Lord and shout to Him with all of our hearts.

    Thanks, Jayme. God is so much bigger than we can fathom, isn’t He? It’s sort of like how they say we only utilize a small part of our brain’s capability–and we only see a God that fits inside the small box we try to limit Him to. Not because we want Him small, but because our faith is small. THANKFULLY, even small faith is enough (mustard seed faith). Your article reminds me of the old hymn, “Be Thou My Vision…”

    Jayme, thanks for this convicting reminder that my “view” of God is often determined by what I see with my physical eyes as opposed to what I see with my spiritual eyes. Ouch.

    And Kathy, “Be Thou My Vision” is one of my favorites!

    I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, for sharing this. Sometime it amazes me that I can “hear” with my ears and “know” something with my mind, but then suddenly I “see” it with the eyes of my heart!!! Thank you for helping me to “enlarge my field of view”. Job 42:5
