The Highest Thing

Psalms 138:2 (Amplified)

I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!

The Highest Thing

               What could be higher than the name of Yahweh, God Almighty?  Is there anything that could be higher?  The Psalmist David tells us there is.  It is His Word.  The Word of God is God’s guarantee of the truth that He backs and upholds by the integrity and reputation of His name that is above every name.  If you doubt the Word, then certainly we doubt God, because who is the Word?  John 1:1-5 tells us, ” IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. 2He was present originally with God.

 3All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. 4In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. 5And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].  What God has spoken and what God has “in-Christed,” if you will, He has backed with the very character and person of who He is. 

               Now look at Hebrews 6:16-20. “Men indeed swear by a greater [than themselves], and with them in all disputes the oath taken for confirmation is final [ending strife].  17Accordingly God also, in His desire to show more convincingly and beyond doubt to those who were to inherit the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose and plan, intervened (mediated) with an oath. 18This was so that, by two unchangeable things [His promise and His oath] in which it is impossible for God ever to prove false or deceive us, we who have fled [to Him] for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us and set before [us].   19[Now] we have this [hope] as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whoever steps out upon it–a hope] that reaches farther and enters into [the very certainty of the Presence] within the veil, 20Where Jesus has entered in for us [in advance], a Forerunner having become a High Priest forever after the order (with the rank) of Melchizedek.”  Is not the promise and the oath of God contained within His Word? 

               You see God has given us His Word as His divine promise, by which He can not lie or deceive that He will bring to pass all that concerns us.  This is a steadfast, immovable anchor that we can take to the bank and never fear that it can be reneged upon.  Because it is the Word that holds together the universe, “All things came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being (John 1:3),” it is more feasible for the universe to utterly collapse and extinguish than for God to not uphold His Word.  That Word, that we often take so lightly and flippantly, is the power, authority and promise of the All Mighty.  Everything that God is, rest in the integrity of what is in His Word.  When we disrespect, doubt or knowingly distort the Word of God, we have stepped on and insulted the integrity of Father.  Let us not ever take His Word lightly, because He exalts it above His very name.  Let us stand in awe and wonder at just how powerful and holy God’s Word is.  It is that power and the promise that brings us within the veil into His very presence.  With all that is within you respect, honor and fear it.  His Word is not just written words upon page in a book.  They are alive, active and energized to carry out His purpose and His promise.  When you hold the Word of God, you hold a loaded gun.  It is a weapon that can kill or give life.  This is why we need the Holy Spirit to operate in it properly.  It must become a part of who we are, because He lives in us.  We are the expression of that Word in Christ and His promises are being fulfilled as we carry in faith this Holy Word in these earthen vessels.  Philippians 2:14-16 says, “Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.”

               Our walk with God is in the power and authority of His Word.  What you carry, know and speak will not only change your life, but has the power to change the world around you.  God is Spirit and He has given us a spiritual Word that we, being spirit and operating out of the Holy Spirit, might bring to pass what has already been written, declared, promised and foreknown.

Blessings,
