In Psalm 34 David gives an invitation:Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him– Psalm 34:8 David had been through the most trying times. He was hunted by Saul, at one time his friends plotted to stone him, his sons betrayed him and he had to live like an outcast even though God promised he’d be king one day. In and through all this David had a taste of His God. He knew His God was gracious, trustworthy, just, true and faithful. He had made God His refuge, and even once, God did not fail him. Have you put your trust in this God with your life, with your future. Do it today, you’ll know He’s good.
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him. — Psalm 34:8
What the Psalmist is inviting us to do is, experience God first-hand. David experienced God’s faithfulness throughout his life. God was his deliverer when he was being chased by his enemies, He was his Protector when he was in danger, He was his Provider in times of need. Above all, he knew God to be merciful when he fell from grace and sinned against God. The Psalmist wants us to know, there is a blessing for those who take refuge in God.
This God will take care of us until the end and give us eternal life when we put our faith in His Son Jesus Christ.
