Taste the Goodness



“O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.” (Psalm 34:8-10)

Psalm 34 is an acrostic psalm, with its 22 verses beginning with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet in sequential order. It emphasizes the believer’s eternal redemption—both in deliverance from sin and in God’s faithful guidance as we walk through our lives in anticipation of our eternal home (Romans 8). We are invited to put our trust in the Lord, since Lord Jesus Christ Himself is our Provider, Protector, and Sustainer (Psalm 23).

Moreover, His people are commanded to taste and see that the Lord is good. “Taste” is not a bite-size, taster-spoon sampler. Rather, “taste” is a full-size meal that completely spiritually satisfies.

Believer, do you taste the sustaining nourishment of Scripture? Ezekiel ate Yahweh’s words, which were “in [his] mouth as honey for sweetness” (Ezekiel 3:1-3). The result of consuming His words is complete contentment in fearing Him and wanting for nothing (Psalm 34:9). “Good” (pleasant, pure, practical) is repeated four times for emphasis in this psalm (vv. 8, 10, 12, 14). Yahweh’s words of Scripture are good and “sweeter than honey” (Psalm 119:103-104).

We can conclude with the apostle Peter, who wrote, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious” (1 Peter 2:2-3). Are you satisfied consuming His Word? Consider this an invitation to the feast. CCM
