Taste the Lord


Psalm 34:8:  O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

To certify any edible thing as good, we need to taste it.  We will never know that a mango is sweet unless we first taste it, right?  How can we possibly say that desserts or food tastes good unless we first taste it?  How do we know some hotels have good food or stuff unless we have been there and tasted it?

God’s word says to taste and see that the Lord is good.  Everyone who trusts in the Lord will be blessed.  God is good all the time.  Some feel that God has been not so good sometimes.  Well, the fact still remains that God is good because goodness is one of His attributes.  He knows what is best for us and He provides only what is needed for us. When God does not fulfill all our desires and wants, we feel that God is not fair.  That is not so.  He does not fulfill all of our wants because He just knows what is just appropriate for us at any given point in time.  Continually trusting God despite all odds is the secret to get blessed.  After having tasted God for a long time and after knowing that He is a good and a just God, how can we turn our backs on Him and say that He is not fair just because He did not give us what we asked?

Stop doubting God.  If you want to know God fully, you have to taste Him by meditating on His word and talking to Him daily in prayer.  Get blessed by putting your trust in Him completely.
