Psalm 34:8 “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”
Many small children will not touch new foods when presented with them for the first time. They will complain and say, “I don't like it, or yuck, I'm not eating that!” The mother's usual reply is an exasperated, “Don't say that you don't like it until you have tried it.” I used to randomly find uneaten french cut stringbeans “hidden” behind our refrigerator when my children were small. When questioned they would just shrug and say, We don't like them.” My oldest daughter still cringes at the mention of french cut stringbeans.
As one who has tasted of God's promise, I can assure you that He is good. There is no safer place to be anywhere in creation, than in His arms. There is not one thing in this world that is worth the trade-off for His love and presence in our lives. The world promises tasty morsels that end up being bitter in the end. A taste of God is real, healthy and life-giving.
Lord, in Jesus' name I pray that You allow each of us to taste Your goodness. Please touch us and heal our minds and bodies. Please cover our hearts and allow us to learn of Your goodness. Thank You for presence, thank You for Your Spirit. I pray for salvation, Lord I pray that Your Spirit falls upon us and change us from glory to glory into Your image. Amen.
