My Encouragement & Prayer For You: He Has Exalted His Word

He Has Exalted His Word

My Encouragement

Psalm 138:1-2 (KJV) I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee. 2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth:

We know from the Scriptures that the name of the Lord our God is great, glorious and exalted in all the earth.

We know that His name must never be taken in vain, and that nobody shall be guiltless who takes His name in vain (Exodus 20:7 KJV - 7 Thou shalt NOT take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain).

We know that our first commitment in prayer, as taught by Jesus is to hallow God’s great and glorious name, as our heavenly Father.
However David, by the Holy Spirit is giving us a profound revelation here: God has exalted HIS WORD far above all HIS NAME.  This is saying something!

If God has exalted His Word above all His name, then we need to reexamine our attitude to the Word of God.  If anyone who takes God’s name in vain cannot be guiltless, then, what happens to anyone who despises or refuses to believe God’s Word that has been exalted far above all His Name?  Developing a reverential attitude of faith to the Word of God will profoundly change your life – positively, gloriously, and eternally.

Reading our Scripture text today from another translation is a great faith booster.
Psalm 138:1-2 (NLT) 1 I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods. 2 I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness;

This gives us a clearer understanding of what the Holy Spirit means when He says that God’s Word has been exalted far above all His name.  All the honor of God’s name is behind every word that He speaks.  Whatever He says is what He does.  Whatever He claims to be is what He is.  If He says He is Jehovah-Rapha, He heals. If He says He is Jehovah-Jireh, He provides (or better said – He becomes our providence).  Whatever He says cannot fail because all the honor of His name is behind His Word.  In other words, He has exalted His Word above all His Name.  Rejoice therefore: all His Word are Yea and Amen.  This will find exact fulfillment just as He has spoken it to you.
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20 For all the promises of God in Him (Jesus) are yea, and in Him (Jesus) Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

My Prayer
Father in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we give you thanks because all your words are true and faithful. Father we ask you to hasten the fulfillment of Your word in our lives in the name of Jesus.  We take ownership of your Word in our lives to see it come to pass as you indeed MAGNIFY YOUR WORD ABOVE ALL YOUR NAME.  Father, in You, we will indeed rejoice and be glad and extol your love more than wine. Draw us unto you and let us run together in power of Your Word, in Jesus’ name.  Father we give You thank because You have heard and answered our prayers this day, as we have said this prayer in the name of Your precious Son Jesus Christ, and everyone who felt the power of this prayer said a big…
