Today's Scripture | Psalm 34:8

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

Some of us are starving to death. On the outside, everything appears fine. But a dark, empty hole gapes deep in our souls.

We have craved what the world offers. We have drunk what it said to drink, bought what it said to purchase, swallowed what it said to take, and followed many streets to their dead ends. And still, we starve.

David encourages all of us to place our trust in God, to taste and see that the Lord is good. Try out His words to find them sweeter than honey in the honeycomb. Feast at His banquet table to be overwhelmed by His loving-kindness that is better than life.

Drink from His living water to never thirst again. He pours out fresh oil and new wine. He rains down manna from heaven in the desert of our days. He satisfies our souls with good things until our hearts overflow.

Take a taste test! We may have tasted misery, heartache, and sorrow in the past, but the Lord is good. He will never disappoint the person who trusts in Him and craves the things of God.

He satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness (Psalm 107:9). Taste and see! 

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May He fill you with fresh hunger for the things of God. Live in the joy, peace, and love that the Father gives the righteous. Receive these things because He is Lord of Your life…Amen.
