Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! - Psalm 34:8
Read: Psalm 34
Like kindness, goodness overflows from God, and we learn what goodness truly is. There is something about coming to the Communion table and tasting the bread and the wine in which when we tangibly experience Christ. In this act, we are reminded of his goodness, his sacrifice for us in giving His only begotten son. We can taste and see the Lord is good in many ways, whatever way we taste and see God’s goodness, we have experienced this goodness and it gives us confidence in the face of great darkness. If we have tasted and seen that the Lord is good – what can we fear? In thinking about manifesting this goodness in a fallen world, here are a few things we can be praying through:
Take time today to prayerfully consider in what ways you’ve tasted and seen that the Lord is good. Write these ways down to be a reminder in the days the come.
Ask the Lord to help you manifest his goodness in your life.
Are there areas of rebellion where you’ve doubted that the Lord is good or where you have not manifested His goodness in your life that He is calling you to repent from?
