Here is a true story based on Psalm 8:2 that will hopefully inspire you to pray for your children to lift up praises to Jesus within your homes and classrooms.
Today, I want to share a true story based on Psalm 8:2 during one of my most recent chapel programs. I had just finished presenting a very visual explanation of how Jesus washes our sin away when a little girl in the front row proclaimed, “I love you, Jesus!” It was a truly precious moment for me and it was also an answer to prayer.
The morning of this little girl’s praise of adoration to Jesus was spent like I normally do. I usually take some time to read the Bible and spend time with Jesus before the day begins. On this particular morning, I found myself reading Psalm 8:2 – again.
This is what Psalm 8:2 says:
Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger. (NIV)
You see, this verse is very intriguing to me. It basically teaches that when children praise the Lord, God uses their praise to still His enemies and to silence all who go against the one and only true living God. This is amazing! This verse could easily be paired with 1 Corinthians 1:27-28, which says:
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are…” (KJV)
How powerful and wonderful our God is to use a small child to bind our Lord’s enemies!
So, on this particular morning I prayed and asked God to move the children that I would share with to give glory and praise to Jesus. God answered my prayer and I am so thankful for that precious young child’s heart of love who was led by the Holy Spirit to proclaim God’s praise.
Do you have a story of children spontaneously offering praise to God that you could share down below in the comments area to encourage the rest of us?
I know I would LOVE to hear it!
