Sermon Illustrations

David wrote Psalm 34:3 when he was faking insanity and Abimelech drove him away; “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” (Amplified)

The word magnify means to make larger and it can be seen two different ways: make God look bigger than He is or see Him as big as He is. Put something under a magnifying glass and it will look larger than what it is and that would be impossible to do with God, so magnify here must mean that we must try to see God, the best we can, as to how big He really is.
