Let God Be Magnified

01 Oct

Psalm 35:27, …Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

Poverty undermines, belittles and causes us to shrink back from truly seeing the magnitude of our God!

The problem is, if we don’t truly understand what it is to be prosperous, we will never see God in His vastness.  His greatness will escape us.

We’ve got it all wrong folks.  Merriam Webster defines poverty this way,

the state of one who lacks a usual or socially acceptable amount of money or material possessions.

In light of that, the truest sense of prosperity is defined by the Word of God this way…

Completeness, soundness, welfare and peace.

Completeness in number.

Safety and soundness in body.

Health

Quiet, tranquility, contentment.

Human friendship and the utmost friendship with God especially in a covenant relationship.

The prosperity of God encompasses so much more than material good or monetary gain.

The prosperity of God is an eternal guarantee and a revenue that is withdrawn directly from His glory.

Philippians 4:19, But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ
Jesus.

To the extent that we magnify and exalt our God, the wealthier we become!

You cannot magnify God and lack peace!  For that matter, you cannot magnify God and lack any thing.

You cannot lift up the name of Jesus and be disappointed!

You cannot glorify the King of kings and suffer discontent!

You cannot make God big and remain small no matter the size of your bank account or social status!
