Daily Devotions: TASTE AND SEE

From Fire Yourself by Willy Stewart & Theresa Allen




Psalm 34:8 (ESV): “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!”

“Try it; you’ll like it!” Oh, how many times have we heard our loving mothers say this when we were young? In a desperate effort to expand our finicky diets of macaroni & cheese or peanut butter & jelly, they would plead with us to just give this new dish a try; a little taste test. It is in this same spirit that the Psalmists invite you and me to give Jesus a try. Just taste a little of His loving kindness; just sample the peace that passes all understanding; just brush your lips against the wellspring of living water … try Him; you’ll fall head over heels in love with Him! Not only that, but we will find that Christ is a safe refuge for us. He will guard us and keep us. We can find rest in Him. There is nothing that can snatch us from the hand of the Almighty (John 10:28-29). Our God is good, and we are blessed because of Him.
