Magnify-We Are Messengers
This song, Magnify comes from a season of both struggle and growth for Darren Mulligan, lead singer of We Are Messengers.
"I wrote this song in a time of my life where I had realized that I had taken my eyes off the cross that I had started to look at things that were less important. God reminded me that true life, abundant life can only be found when I give myself away and I surrender fully to Him, when I magnify His name." - Darren Mulligan (lead singer)
It's easy to get caught up in our modern fast-paced lives, focusing on things we need to get done, or the next stage of life we need to get to. At times its easy for us to forget that true joy doesn't come from something we can obtain on this world. Joy only comes from living with and for God.
If you look at Matthew 10:39, it says, "Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it."
These words can be a nice thought, or they can be a humbling and uncomfortable reality check. We all struggle with sin whether its idolatry, lying or whatever. What things do you hold on to for joy and hope? How do you remind yourself that God is the one who satisfies?
