Magnify the Lord

By Roy Lessin

O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.
Psalm 34:3 (KJV)

Self-righteousness, self-justification and self-sufficiency do not magnify the Lord’s sacrifice, redemption, and atonement for us on the cross.

It is only through brokenness, humility, and repentance that we can fully magnify who the Lord is and what He has done in our lives. For it is out of our poverty that we magnify His riches; it is out of our smallness that we magnify His greatness; it is out of our frailty that we magnify His power; it is out of our need that we magnify His fullness; it is out of our flaws that we magnify His perfection; it is out of our deficiency that we magnify His abundance; it is out of our unworthiness that we magnify His mercies; it is out of our imperfection that we magnify His beauty; it is out of our weakness that we magnify His strength; it is out of our insufficiency that we magnify His grace.

God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)
