Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Psalm 34:8 NIV
God’s goodness isn’t something we are meant to simply acknowledge intellectually or believe theologically. Rather, God wants us to actively experience His goodness.
“Taste and see that the Lord is good,” the psalmist encourages. It’s a call to engage our most human senses in order to recognize and enjoy our divine Creator.
As autumn wraps up and winter is upon us, look for opportunities to taste and see that which reflects God’s goodness. Savor a warm mug of hot chocolate or bite into a decadent slice of pumpkin pie. Enjoy watching the snow fall quietly outside your window or the winter sunset along the horizon with streaks of gold, pink, and dusty violet.
Let everything you taste and see become a reminder to turn in thanks to the Giver of all good things. Let His goodness compel you to seek refuge in Him.
