Biblical Phrases — Taste and See!

Day 2202: May your Sunday turn your thoughts upward. Starting a series on 2/3 word phrases!

Scripture: Taste and see that the LORD is good! How blessed is the person who trusts in Him! Psalm 34:8  

Thoughts/questions: It’s always fun to observe children taste new things. Few take a big sample if they are even willing to try, and most put a tiny bit on their tongue, ready to spew it forth if it doesn’t meet their expectations.

God’s invitation to taste and see is responded to similarly. Some won’t taste; others will step up but minimally with much fear; and a few will jump right in. We don’t get to see first and know that God is trustworthy; no, we have to step out in faith and taste!

A loving parent will encourage their child to just try it and see if they like it. God wants us to do the same knowing we WILL like it! After tasting, we will see, and then be blessed as we WILL find Him trustworthy.

Is there something God is asking you to step out in faith and taste and seeThe Lord is good, so take that first step! Like a good parent, He wouldn’t be putting something in front of you that wasn’t going to be good for you!!!

Suggested prayer: Sovereign God, may I always trust You . . .
