Magnify your God

Have you ever noticed when you focus too long on something, anything, whether good or bad, happy or sad, positive or negative it can become an obsession and a distraction?
Satan was once a magnifier of God, when he was an angel. He was the one to give glory to God and now, is the magnifier of our sin, our troubles, our anxieties and the darkness in this world.  It helps me to gain perspective when times are tough and I begin to focus on problems and trials and trauma in the world too much and those things become magnified and that is when I worry and and start to doubt or fear.

"Greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world"

Today make a conscience effort to magnify God not your worries, banish the enemy back to where he belongs, do not allow your focus to get off of God and his goodness. Psalms 34 says, "Oh magnify the Lord with me, let us exalt his name together." John 10:10, 'The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." Focus on the fruits of the spirit to fill your mind, those are the very things the enemy wants to steal from you but you own them in Christ.
