Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;…
Mango is my favorite fruit. It’s sweet, smells good, rich in vitamins and I can’t get enough of it. I know this because I’ve tasted it.
How do you taste Him? Obviously this is a figure of speech….BUT…..
You will never know His goodness UNTIL YOU sit with Him and let Him reveal it to you. Just like I know the taste and goodness of a mango from eating it, I know His goodness, the richness of His presence by being with Him.
To be One with Him, you have to spend time with Him. To taste His goodness, you have to be with Him. I take Psalm 34:8 as an invitation to go deeper. I go before Him and say; “Lord, today I want to taste and know Your goodness…” Then I sit and wait – sometimes in silence and sometimes I have worship music playing softly in the background. He has never failed to show up and show me more of Him.
I want to encouraged you to go deeper….taste and see that the Lord is truly good!
PS – i just felt to add this….when I pray this; I’m not asking for anything but to be with Him. He yearns for fellowship and intimacy. There is a time for everything – know when to seek Him for Him and when to pray for other things you desire.
