How to use magnify in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    God edifies whoever that magnifies him via praises. That is to say, magnification evokes edification. Therefore, you've got to magnify God if you've not been doing so. Because, if you dare to magnify him (God). He will definitely edify you. I mean, he (God) will reciprocally build you up like a house. Oh! yes, he can and he will. As a matter of fact, king David magnified him all his lifetime and due to that, he built him up like a house. That is why he (God) made him (David) the most celebrated king of Israel. Moreover, God took David to be the only man after his own heart. Now at this juncture, I hope you should have found a single reason why you should magnify God hence forth. For, he is ever ready to edify you even more than he edified King David. -Emeasoba George

  5. Samuel Beckett:
