Taste and See

  Psalm 34:7-9
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
    and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
    for those who fear him lack nothing.
Little Dude and I went strawberry picking on one of the craziest, hottest days!
Even though it was sweltering, a major bonus is that we can eat all we want while we pick!
There is nothing like a pump, bright red, juicy strawberry that is warm from the sun.
How many times have you heard this verse, "Taste and see that the Lord is good"?
I've heard it so many times, in all different kinds of circumstances.
But I love the true context of the verse.
David was being pursued by his enemies and he even acted insane to get away from them!
In the midst of all his battles, enemies and fleeing from Saul who was trying to kill him, David turned to God to be his deliverer, his refuge and his provider.
And in the midst of tough circumstances, he praises God and says, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." Check it out for yourself!  Take a bite!  God is so good to those who put their trust in Him.
We live in a society that wants to be guaranteed that something is good before they take a bite.  They want proven evidence prior to making the commitment.
But God doesn't work that way.  He says Put your trust in me first, then you'll see.
Take a bite.  Trust me.  Hide in me.  Confess your weakness.
You'll see that I am good!
Take a bite, and you'll see!
Happy Weekend
