O Taste And See That The Lord Is Good

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:


O Taste And See That The Lord Is Good

“O taste and see that the Lord is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him”

Psalm 34:8


This was, in David’s mind, the simplest, most direct, appeal to a person regarding their own entrance into ministering to the Lord in His presence.


David believed that if one would truly “taste and see” God’s goodness, then this would create a continuing desire to lead that individual further into God’s “refuge” presence. For it is actually within our “refuge” of God, Himself, that we do directly “taste and see” just how good our God is!


“Taste and see” means to experience, realize, and understand “that the Lord is good.”


When we “taste and see that the Lord is good,”in His presence, then we most certainly do realize for our own lives the truth of “how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.”


There is a connection between tasting the goodness of God and desiring more of His presence, and God has made it this way.


The proof of our tasting and seeing that the Lord is good, is that we step further and closer into His presence for more of this goodness we are tasting.


It’s so blessedly simple for all of us.
