Time With God

Taste and see that the Lord is good! How blessed is the onewho takes shelter in him!

[Ps 34:8 NET]

We can learn of God’s goodness only by experience.

When Nathanael doubted that any good thing could come out of Nazareth, Philip did not argue with him. He said quietly, “Come and see.” Nathanael went with Philip, saw Jesus, heard His words, and was convinced.

Some people will not believe that God is good, that all the blessings Christians tell about are really to be found in Him. There is little use in reasoning with such people, trying to prove what we say. But if we can get them to try our God for themselves, they will soon learn that the half had not been told them.

If we would find more and more of the good there is in Christ, we must learn by experience. It is good to take the words He has spoken and put them to the test. We shall find in every one a treasure of blessing.

God is always bidding us to try Him by trusting and obeying Him. “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”
