The Goodness of the Lord!

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him”Psalm 34:8 (NIV).

Every kid who has played out in the school yard must have heard those taunting words, “Try me!” It is often a provocative statement by a bully meant to solicit response. In fact one can even throw a soft bow at an opponent and jeer back, “Feel that! Try me!”

 Psalm 26:2 says, “Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind..!” Here David lays himself before God seeking out His vindication. He adds, “For I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness” (verse 3). Then Malachi 3:10 says, Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” Certainly, a direct challenge from the Almighty to pour out His love based on our offerings.

In any relationship there can be those moments where either party challenges the other. Today anyone of us can come and say “Dear God, “try me” that I may experience your full blessings for I am your loving child!”

Prayer for today: Lord Father God, you know who I am and like the scriptures say, “try me” that may I taste and see your goodness, in the land of the living!
