8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
The sense of taste is strong! It evokes emotions in us. I know my favorite things to eat, because I know how they taste. Chocolate, Ice cream, Roman Cream biscuits, Tea 🙂 …When I talk about them, I actually smile and feel good. When I look at them, like that yummy looking cake, I have a desire to go get one. When I have never tasted something, it doesn’t really evoke any feelings in me, because I can never really understand what it’s like like unless I TASTE. It’s an experience.
God calls us to taste and see that He is good. To experience Him: What have you tasted of God’s goodness? Do you know Him as your Father, Provider, Friend, Comforter, Protector, Strength, Excellence… Have you tasted? When we talk about God as faithful, what is your “experience”? When we talk about God, what emotions are evoked in you? If there are no feelings, you have not yet tasted Him.
Just like we KNOW the taste of the things we eat, we should KNOW the taste of God: He is GOOD! As long as you taste God, you will find that He is GOOD all the time. He will nourish you with His love. Be aware everything good is of Him and EXPECT GOOD from God every day, and put your trust completely in His goodness!
Have a week full of the deliciousness of God. May the mention of His Name bring your heart so much joy, peace and comfort, knowing He is GOOD always.
