O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! Psalm 34:8
“Taste and see that the Lord is good.” This is an invitation to us to take God at his word, to trust in the Lord and experience his goodness, to know God personally, realizing that he loves us more than we can ever imagine.
David is urging us to do just that. He is inviting us to experience what he has discovered: the goodness of God’s salvation. David is celebrating that God has rescued him from his fears and troubles. We are promised great blessings from God to his people. He will deliver, guard, supply, listen, and redeem all who trust in his power to save. We seek to honor him in all things, speak truthfully, seek peace and justice, and humbly serve our God.
Help me, dear Father, to know you better. Open my heart, dear Lord, so that I will more fully entrust myself to your care. Open my eyes to see just how gracious you are to me. Thank you for your goodness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Psalms 119:103 “How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
