The Magnified Word

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

Psalms 138:2b:
. . . for thou {God} hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

The Psalmist says that God magnified His Word above His entire name. What is in a name? Well, when it is the name of God Who created the universe, then a lot is in that name. The power, the glory, and the eminence of God Himself is what is in His name. Yet the Word of God is magnified even above God’s good name. For His Word is perfect, greater than perhaps we have ever realized, for it has stood the test of time and it still stands for something. God never magnified the stars or planets, He never magnified any of his created Angels, but He did indeed magnify His precious Word.

John 17:17:
Sanctify them {believers} through thy {God’s} truth: thy word is truth.

We are sanctified through the truth, for the magnified Word of God is truth! To be sanctified is to be set aside, to be cleansed by and for the Creator, and to be His chosen children with access to God through His truth, which is His Word. When the Word of God begins holding us up, when His Word has a place in our hearts, and when His Word becomes our guiding light, then we will begin to realize our unique standing in the household of God sanctified in Him to hold His magnificently magnified Word. The Psalmist further said:

Psalms 119:11:
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

We can hide God’s Word in the hearts of our conscious minds and His Word will help us from falling away from Him. God’s Word is the greatest thing ever given to humanity, and all we have to do is accept it at face value to begin experiencing true confidence and sanctification in His Word. God never said we were perfect, He only asks that we try, and when we do try, God through the Word will do more than we could ask or even think.

Ephesians 3:20:
Now unto him {God} that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.

It certainly is wonderful to be learning about the greatness of the magnified Word of God, and it will become even greater the more we begin holding God’s Word high and esteemed as the Psalmist did. Consider that God already knows everything about us and He still loves us! He gave His Word, which is actually His heart laid bare to us so that we can truly know Him, and so that our relationship could be a two-way knowing and loving relationship. These are the keys to true spiritual life with God, and this life is more than abundant, so please enjoy your day knowing that you have complete access to all of God’s perfect truth — the magnified Word.
