I came to Magnify the Lord
Praise His holy name
Lift Jesus higher, lift Jesus Higher
Bishop Clarence E. McClendon – “I Came to Magnify the Lord”
Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; Let such as love Your salvation say continually, “The Lord be magnified!” Psalm 40:16 NKJV
Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with voices loud and high. And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 20:19,21 NKJV
Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together.
Psalm 34:3 NKJV
Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
Psalm 150 NKJV
Your Praise is literally music to God’s ears. It pleases him and drives the Devil crazy! To put it simply, the God-exalting Praise of a Christian man availeth much! Having a ‘gratitude attitude’ in your thankfulness towards the Lord is as valuable as your faith and prayers. Isn’t God worthy to be praised?

To God be the glory! Let him be magnified and exalted. Know where your joy comes from.
