In Psalm 138, David bows himself down with thanks, and lifts up the name and the word of God. God’s name represents all that He has done, particularly His blessings towards David: strengthening, hearing, preserving, and defending him. God’s word refers to the laws and commands He issues as the Lord above all earthly kings. When kings hear God’s glorious word, they rejoice and sing, like David does. In light of God’s name and word, David expresses his trust in the Lord, and renews his appeal for God not to forsake him. As you come to worship today, meditate on God’s reputation and His word, and add your voice to David’s praise.
