Young Children's Praise of God

An encouraging reminder from Psalm 8.... 

"From the lips of children and infants, you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger." 

I am in awe of the fact that God ordains praise from our very little children - even babies who cannot yet talk - and that this praise from the weakest of humans silences spiritual and human opponents to God! 

I don't understand how this works - but somehow our children have extremely strong spiritual strength in their trusting praises of God, even when we ourselves don't know whether or not they have a relationship with God. 

To me, this is wonderful motivation to surround them with Bible scripture and songs of praise to God - because somehow, they catch on and really join in - and it is powerful.
