Oh! Taste and See that the Lord is good, blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. Psalms 34:8 (King James Version).
Find out for yourself how good the LORD is. Happy are those who find safety with Him. Psalms 34:8 (Good News Translation)
Oh put God to test and see how kind He is! See for yourself the way His mercies shower down on all who trust in Him. Psalms 34:8 (The Living Bible).
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see how good GOD is. Blessed are you who run to Him. Psalms 34:8 (The Message).
Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God. Experience for yourself the joyous mercies He gives to all who turn to hide themselves in Him. Psalms 34:8 (The Passion Translation).
We would naturally not taste something we have not seen and sometimes when its something we have seen we find it very hard to taste but with God we get an invitation to taste and see His goodness, We might be scared and unsure but our eyes and lips will tell of His goodness. He calls us to trust that He will never give us what will choke us but what will sharpen our sight and bless the nations of the earth.
“Taste and see” is a call to trust that He will never give us what will choke us but what will sharpen our sight and bless the nations of the earth.
Have you ever heard of a product from a friend and he or she says ‘Buy it, a trial will convince you” and you do exactly so. That is exactly what God wants us to do also, I feel like He is saying a trial will convince you.
“Taste and see” is a call to experience God personally, it is an invitation to a life of communion. We are left with the choice to either feast or NOT.
Tasting and seeing His Goodness is a result of a personal experience, that is no one can
do it for anybody, it has to be a deliberate act to taste and see that the Lord
is good. The amazing thing about this is that God has not called us to taste
and see what will harm us but what will entrench or further entrench our belief in HIM.
Taste and see that I am God!
Taste and see that I am good!
Taste and see that I can be trusted!
Taste and know that this is not a cliche but I am indeed good.
