The Lord's word is at the pinnacle of all existence.

As the Psalmist said, the Lord elevates His word above His own name.

The Lord's name is a strong fortress and the righteous shall run into it and and are safe meaning that the name of the Lord can turn away any power in the universe in the protection of God's people.

Yet, the Lord places His word even higher than His name. 

Here is how the passage goes in Psalm 138 verse 1 - 2.

I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. -Psalm 138  verse 1- 2.

The word of the Lord is so exalted that God has made even Himself subject to His own word. How much more should we revere and heed every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
