Bible Notes

Psalm 8:1b-2 (05.07.22)

Psalm 8:1b-2 NIVUK
You have set your glory
in the heavens.
2 Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.

God has set his glory in the heavens, the stars, planets and moons all point towards God’s immense power and scale. You might think this is the thing that would cower those who stand against him, but the Psalmist suggests that paradoxically it is love and applause of children. What is it about this that might cause them to be silenced? I wonder if this simply tells us something about the power of genuine love and worship.

Today we add our voices to those of the children and infants in worshipping you in our lives, seeking to help build your kingdom
