Make God Bigger

In many places throughout the Bible, the word “magnify” is the same word translated “glorify”. Therefore, these two words can be used interchangeably. To magnify something means to make it bigger.

Did you know that you can make God bigger? Bigger than your problems and bigger than your enemies.

Technically speaking, God is who He is, regardless of what you think, but in terms of your perception, He can be big or small. You have the power to make Him one or the other in your life. Most of us have become masters at magnifying our problems and minimizing God and His Word. We must stop this if we want to have breakthrough in our lives. We need to see our problems the way God sees them, He is able to remove the mountains in our lives, when we believe Him. By magnifying God’s Word above our problems and getting a Word directly from Him to stand upon, we offer an open door for the breakthroughs we need. Jesus said,

“Have faith in God - speak to that mountain”  and it will be removed, if you do not doubt in your heart.  (Mk 11:23-25)

Make your mountains into mole hills by magnifying God in the midst of them. Refuse to magnify the devil.

Refuse to magnify your negative circumstances… instead, magnify the Lord! Speak of your Heavenly Father’s greatness and enlarge His power and might in contrast to your limitation. Talk about how big and powerful Your God is. When you make God bigger… you at the same time shrink your mountains.

Speak The Truth

Its Amazing

Shout it Girl

As Ambassadors of the Kingdom of God, we have been given power and authority to speak God’s Word over circumstances. Truth triumphs over facts, because of the realms they are grounded in. Facts are rooted in the natural and Truth is rooted in the supernatural. Just in case you were wondering… the supernatural is both more dominant and more real.

1 Peter 4:11 “If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.”

 God’s Word in your mouth has the ability to change what we see and cause it to conform to what we know to be the will of God.

 Let’s look at Mark 11:23; “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

 Jesus was saying to us to speak as an oracle of authoritative Truth… as an expression of God’s own voice. That’s a powerful invitation to the average follower. So many of us have missed this idea, thinking that Jesus didn’t really mean for us to speak to things, but that He would take care of the issue if we just kinda left it alone. Not only did He mean for us to speak to that mountain, He also commanded us to tell it where to go. In other words “give it a place of total forgetfulness” and you won’t have to deal with it. Give your trouble a destination where it will be completely out of sight and out of mind. The sea is a perfect place for trouble to go. The believer’s job is to believe and speak, and God’s job is to carry it out. 

If we start speaking and yet hold on to our doubting we will deceive ourselves and release a double mindedness that will achieve very little. The Bible says that a double minded man is unstable and shouldn’t even think he will receive from the Lord (James 1:6-8).

Jesus said do not doubt in your heart, but believe the things you are saying will come to pass, then you will have whatsoever you say. This command was given to change facts, by using the Truth.

 Oh how powerful is the Truth of God’s Word… as we speak it boldly, things are happening on our behalf in the Spirit Realm.

 Just like the noise the prophet Ezekiel heard when the bones started moving into alignment (Ezek 37:2-6), bone to bone and putting on the sinew and skin. Jesus said the way of the Kingdom is first the blade then the ear, and after that the full corn in the ear (Mk 4:26-29). In other words… there is a progression that can take some time, because the Kingdom of Heaven is an influence that takes dominion over the “squatter” – Satan. Satan will always tell you that it won’t work for you this time.

 Its an authority issue with the Enemy, but God is on your side at all times against the Devil. You just need to remind those demonic forces about the power you have to tread over all their filthy, rotten messes (Lk 9:1-2). You remind Satan that he is an outlaw predator and a liar, and that the power of God’s Truth is already changing the facts.

See yourself as the Lord sees you and begin to speak as the oracles of God! He sets you in the midst of life with all the power you need to succeed in Christ Jesus.
