Scripture for the week of August 18, 2018
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! We love to savor or cherish the moment and it is often accompanied by the feelings of comfort and happiness. This verse invites us to taste and see the goodness of the Lord. But, what does that mean? It seems to encourage us that we don’t have to struggle and fret if we can’t grasp all the ways of God or don’t understand the whole Bible. 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 Him for more and more as we see the blessings of His comfort, peace and joy in every aspect of our lives. O taste and see that the Lord is good.
