"Magdil" is a verb. We use a verb on weekdays, since a verb tells us that something is happening. Exile is compared to the weekdays. Hashem is doing things. Each day, He is busy preparing for the final Bays Hamikdosh and getting ready to take us out of exile. "Magdil", the verb, comes to show us that each day, it is getting closer to the time of Moshiach and the end of our exile. "Migdohl" is a noun, used in theShabbos and Yom Tov "bentching", which stands for something whole or complete.
Both Shabbos and Yom Tov are compared to the days of Moshiach.All three are a completion. Shabbos is a completion of the days of the week. The days of Moshiach are a completion of the long exile. At this time we say, "Hashem is a tower". He islike a strong, safe place. (Iyun T'filo)
