Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 14, 2019

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusts in him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. Psalm 34:8,10 (NKJV)

Have you ever longed for the taste of something like the first sip of coffee in the morning, your favorite piece of pie or maybe the best decadent chocolate as it melts in your mouth? There is nothing quite like that first taste that is so satisfying, that causes us to savor the moment and is often accompanied by the feelings of comfort and happiness. This verse seems to encourage us that we don’t have to struggle and fret because we can’t understand the whole Bible or not able to grasp all the ways of God. If we will just begin to taste a little at a time of God’s love, goodness, mercy and grace; we will want to keep seeking for more and more of Him as we experience the blessings of His comfort, peace and joy in every aspect of our lives. In John 16:24, we are told, “Ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full”. Is there something in your life you need to ask the Lord about today? O taste and see that the Lord is good!
