The way God silences his enemies

Psalm 8:2: “Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.”

Seeing a lot of injustice in this world one might think that God has completely forsaken and forgotten the planet earth and is occupied with ‘God knows what’. Nothing could be further from the truth. God hates injustice and He is actively fighting it with his methods and according to his timing. Most people fail to understand how He does that. You see, He does not need human strength to reveal his own strength. Therefore, God chooses that which is weak, feeble and even stupid in the world to show his power, love and wisdom. 

Who would expect that the Savior of the world would be born in a manger? People would think that almighty God would make his son born at some very respectable place. Yah? But that is our human wisdom. God thoughts are not ours. His does not need human wisdom to help Him to show his own wisdom. He can defeat his enemies in a twinkle of an eye. So, do expect him working through children, uneducated, former outcasts and absolutely ordinary people. He fills those with his spirit and they became extraordinary and defeat Satan in his devilish wisdom and power. Not by their own power, but by the power of his Spirit. That is how God silences his enemies.
