Sovereign Over Us

Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; and let all those who love Your salvation say continually, "Let God be magnified!" Psalm 70:4 NKJV

God is sovereign, in all that we are experiencing, whether we know it or even like it or not. But to truly rejoice and love His salvation, we must say ,”Let God be magnified!” But what can that possibly mean. How can I in any way make the creator of the universe any bigger? The same question might have come to John the Baptist when He baptized Jesus. He continued his ministry even as the crowds that had followed him grew thinner and some of his best disciples began following Jesus. But John came to an amazing conclusion. He must increase, but I must decrease!” This didn’t change John’s circumstances. In fact John was soon arrested by King Herod and put in prison. But even waiting on death row John remained faithful. He accepted his decreasing popularity and freedom, because he knew that as he seemed smaller to others Jesus would be seen as greater. He joined the angels and the faithful of all time as was able to rejoice because God was being magnified! I hope you are as blessed as I was listening to one of my favorite families sing Sovereign over us.
