Psalms Friday Devotional – Child Like Faith

In our Psalms today God’s Word sounds out how child like praises of God silence enemies of God: 

Psa 8:2  Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.

In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus tells us that those who receive His truth are to be blessed:

Matthew 11: 25  At that time Jesus prayed this prayer: “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. 

Contrary to what we are often taught in the classroom and in modern media, we are not supposed to believe, instead we are instructed by the world to question Christ’s work through unproven theories like evolution and darwinism.  These academic types that oppose God, like to (as Jesus said) “think of themselves wise and clever” 

Meanwhile, children or even Christians with child like faith, who look at the Bible as God’s actual revelation of Himself to us, and not just some book with fairy tales—  these believers — actually silence God’s foes with unanswerable questions like how could God make us right through the death of His Son?  That transcends all of human understanding.  No where else in the universe would someone send their own offspring to die in order to save their enemies.  Yet before we were saved by Jesus, that’s exactly what we were, enemies of God.  That is a story no literary genius could ever come up with, and it is the greatest truth in all of human history.  

As today’s Word points out, holding on to this truth and living by it silences all of God’s enemies, who have no answer to God’s creation and His redemptive plan.  Scientists, academics and literary authors haven’t come anywhere close to answering how the universe came about, God’s perfect human design and God love for us.  

As Christ says; Blessed are those who receive these Biblical truths with child like faith for it silences the doubters who are ultimately enemies of God.
