Taste and See

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.” Psalm 34:8-10

Both my husband and I had the blessing of having moms who were in our opinions, the best chefs! Our moms took the time each day to prepare a healthy meal for their families  - all in the name of love!

When we began our family, mealtime was also always an expression of our love for our children.  I remember when they were very young, my husband and I received so much joy to introduce solid foods into their diets. We loved to see the expression on their faces, as they tasted for the first time a banana or an orange or the sweet taste of watermelon! We were filled with joy when we saw their reaction to having their taste buds satisfied and when they desired more.

The Bible says, “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!”

As we begin this glorious Christmas season and if you have not “tasted” the LORD, I invite you to allow Him to satisfy your soul! By doing so, it will open up your desire to want more of HIM!

“Taste and see” does not mean, “Check out God’s credentials.” Instead it is a warm invitation: “Try this; I know you’ll like it.” When we take the first step of obedience in following God, we will discover that He is good and kind. When we begin the Christian life, our knowledge of God is partial and incomplete. As we trust Him daily, we experience how good He is.” Commentary

As we taste and see the wonderful foods of Christmas, let's not only see the loving hands that prepared it, but let's see the loving God who provided it!

OH, Taste and See that the LORD is good! Those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing!
