For Thou Has Magnified Thy Word Above All Thy Name

In Psalm 138, David is worshipping and praising God for who God is, what He has done and what He will do. Time and time again, in his life, he experienced the power of God's love and truth beyond anything he could've imagined, witnessed or heard of "the name of God."

God's servant Job who walked with God, when put into the fiery furnace of trial, and questioned by God concerning His power in creation, would later confess that he had uttered things he didn't understand; things too wonderful, which he knew not. (Job 42:3)

He also said, "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now my eye seeth thee." (Job 42:5)

And touching on the magnificent manifestation of the Incarnate Word, the Lord Jesus Christ: "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14)

During the earthly ministry of the "Son of Man," people marveled at the teachings of the Lord, were confounded by His miracles including those who professed to know God. Since time began, they had never witnessed anything like it.

Jesus said:
"He who has My commandments (my words) and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him." (John 14:21)
"But why do you call Me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say." (Luke 6:46)
"You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. (John 13:13-15)

Our faithful, loving, merciful, gracious God is true and has bound Himself to His Word and magnified it above His very name.

There are yet things to come, that our finite minds can not comprehend. Precious promises to be fulfilled which our eyes have not seen or entered the imagination; no more sickness, no more death; a new heaven and a new earth, (the latter without seas,) no more sun or moon, for God will be the light thereof.

All these and more beside—now, in the future and forever, are in accordance to the Word of God.
