”And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” Luke 1:46-47 RSV
Is anything too hard for God? Well, according to the Book I read, including these stories around the birth of Jesus, the answer is a big fat, whopping, No!!!
You’ve probably heard some of these old sayings, “Don’t measure the height of the mountain. Ponder the power of the One who made it. Don’t tell God how big your storm is. Tell the storm how big your God is.” Easier said than done, right?
Max Lucado writes: Your problem is not that your problem is so big, but that your view of God is too small. Our tendency is to magnify our fears. We place a magnifying glass on the diagnosis, the disease, or the debt. Stop that! Meditate less on the mess and more on the Master. Less on the problems and more on his power.”
The psalmist writes, “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together” (Psalm 34:3 NKJV).
This Sunday we will listen once again to Mary’s song in Luke 1 and see if we can experience her joy in magnifying the Lord in both good days and bad.
See ya Sunday,
