Tried and True

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

(Psalm 34:8 NIV)

Have you ever tried something and discovered that it’s actually as good as it promises to be? How did you feel? What did you do about it? I’m sure you didn’t keep it a secret and told everyone you knew about it.

The psalmist in today’s passage exhorts us to “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8). Having experienced God’s goodness during a time of trouble, David assures us that those who take refuge in Him will not be disappointed. So we can trust David’s words. They’re tried and true.

But David isn’t the only one. Throughout Scripture and down through the ages, many others who have experienced God’s goodness have testified about it. Godly men and women don’t just quote the words of Scripture to sound wise or spiritual, they have actually experienced them for themselves and they tell us that they can be trusted. So “taste and see that the Lord is good”, so you too can experience this truth for yourself and share it with others.
