Taste And See {Taste}

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” Psalm 34:8


There are so many layers to this verse! Taste and see…what does that really mean? In a world where where people are valued for acquiring more and more knowledge, God does not place value on this. He doesn’t want us to just learn about Him and simply have head knowledge. He wants us to actually know Him, intimately and personally. We spend time with Him, talking with Him and learning His voice.


We taste Him there.

We experience His goodness there.


The more we taste of His character, the more we see His goodness.Β 

The more we see His goodness, the more we trust that He is a refuge for us.


He is a safe place. That is the blessing! He is a refuge of comfort, peace, strength, hope and joy. Taste and see. Trust. Be blessed.



How have Β you seen and tasted of the goodness of God?

    I’ve never put the second part of that verse with the first part. It completely changes the depth when we see scripture as a whole.

      Amy! I am learning as everyday goes by of how much of a safe place God is for me. I only see Him as safe if I have seen and trusted in His goodness. I pray that our eyes continue to be opened to this truth and that we learn to live out of that and experience all the blessings that He has for us.
