Response : Not only in the heavens above is the Lord seen, but the earth beneath is telling forth his majesty. In the sky, the massive orbs, rolling in their stupendous grandeur, are witnesses of his power in great things, while here below, the lisping utterances of babes are the manifestations of His strength in little ones. How often will children tell us of a God whom we have forgotten! How does their simple prattle refute those learned fools who deny the being of God! Many men have been made to hold their tongues, while sucklings have borne witness to the glory of the God of heaven. It is singular how clearly the history of the church expounds this verse. Did not the children cry “Hosanna!” in the temple, when proud Pharisees were silent and contemptuous? and did not the Saviour quote these very words as a justification of their infantile cries? “But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple area, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant.”Matthew 21:15
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, Psalm 8:2,Matthew 21:16 In a prophetical manner, speaking of that which was to be done by children many hundreds of years after, for the asserting of His infinite mercy in sending his Son Jesus Christ into the world to save us from our sins. For so the Lord applies their crying, “Hosanna to the Son of David” in the temple. Hallelujah! to the Son of God.
As Your child Heavenly Father, may I always sing praise to Your matchless Name. May I attribute greatness, power and majesty to You, the only One worthy to receive all my praise. Amen.
