Psalm Saturday, 8e

O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!  who hast set thy glory above the heavens.  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him?  and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Psalm 8:1-5

The Psalmist says here that “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightiest still the enemy and the avenger.”  God has ordained strength because of His enemies.  He is infinitely more powerful than any of his enemies.  This is an important thing for us to remember.  God is in control.  It may not always seem like it, but God is in control and none of His enemies can stand before Him.  It may seem sometimes that the world is winning it’s war against God, but we do not need to be deceived.  God will “still the enemy and the avenger.” That is a comforting thought!
