Seven Ways To Taste And See God
O taste and see that the Lord is good – Psalm 34:8
I love how that verse begins. The Lord is good. David invites us to taste and see that the Lord is good. I have thought about that for a long time and wondered exactly how I could taste and see that the Lord is good. As I continue to ponder how this can be done, here are seven ways that I see it happening in our lives.
When the Shepherd brings us to the table He has prepared for us.
Imagine that this Shepherd who leads us beside still waters and leads us through the valley of the shadow of death prepares this incredible table for us to dine at. Eat. Taste. See that He is good.
When we drink the wine that Jesus changed from water.
We will drink our fill of regular old wine and be satisfied. Jesus changes water into wine that turns out to be better than the wine that came before it. Drink. Taste. See that He is good.
When we eat an unending provision of fish and loaves.
Jesus takes a few fish and loaves that a kid has and turns them into enough to feed several thousand people. Then we the leftovers are gathered up, there is a whole basket for the disciples. A little is plentiful for a lot. Eat. Taste. See that He is good.
When we drink of the Living Water He gives us at the well.
We come to Him with our sordid past. We deserve to be sent away. Instead we get offered Living Water that satisfies our soul and we never thirst again. Drink. Taste. See that He is good.
When we eat His flesh and drink His blood.
His flesh is broken for us so that we may eat. His blood is shed so that we may drink. Eat. Drink. See that He is good.
When we do not live on bread alone but on every word out of the mouth of God.
The enemy offers us bread. He offers us His very word. We can’t live on bread alone. Eat. Drink. See that He is good.
When whatever we eat or drink or whatever else we do, we do it for the glory of God.
We eat everyday. We drink everyday. We do many things everyday. Do it for the glory of God. Eat. Drink. See that He is good.
What ways would you add that would allow us to taste and see God
