Taste and See

"Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him." Psalm 34:8

"Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praise to His name, for that is pleasant." Psalm 135:3

"The LORD is gracious and compassionate slow to anger and rich in love.." Psalm 145:8

Think of a time when you tried a new food.  For me it was a time when my husband bought me a new flavor of ice cream.  You see, when it comes to my favorite foods, like ice cream or chocolate, I am always leery of trying something new.  I love chocolate so much that I am afraid of tasting a bad chocolate (is there such a thing??) and being ruined!  Silly I know.  Anyway, my favorite ice cream was out so my hubby had to choose something else.  I had never tried this flavor or brand and was afraid of not liking it.  After only one small taste, I knew it was good.  This became my new favorite ice cream and my husband became my ice cream hero! 

That is how it is with God.  God is goodGod is awesome!  After only one small taste of God's goodness, I am hooked and I crave more.  When I worship and feel His presence I desire more of His presence.  When I pray, then hear or see answered prayers, I feel a strong need to pray more.  God is so good.  There is no way to deny it.  The Bible tells us over and over that the Lord is good.  Dear friends, just taste Him.  Just get a small glimpse of His goodness.  The more you get, the more you will want.  Spend time in His presence and taste and see that the Lord is oh so good! 


  1. Oh, so good! God is GOOD and if the world would just TRUST Him enough to 'taste' of His goodness they would see!

  2. Amen! God is a loving Father - all His gifts are good.
