Taste and see that I am good. The more intimately you experience Me, the more convinced you become of My goodness.
I have been taught since early childhood that You are good. However, that teaching did not change me significantly. Eventually I became a Christian, and I tasted Your goodness briefly. Yet I still did not know You very deeply. As a result, when things went badly in my life, I tended to resent Your ways with me. Only when I began investing time in seeking Your Face did I start to know You intimately. Now that I have tasted Your goodness, I want to experience more and more of You
Beloved, your desire to know Me more fully is a delight to My heart. Actually, I have been pursuing you for quite some time. Long before you became a believer, I was working to reveal Myself to you. I placed experiences in your life that exposed your deep need to know Me. I brought you people in whom you could see the Light of My Presence. Even after you trusted Me as Savior I continued to pursue your heart, which was divided between Me and worldly goals. Finally, you began seeking Me with your whole heart, and I rejoiced!
Your wholeheartedness has opened the way for genuine intimacy between us. You have tasted My goodness, and you want more. I have responded to this desire in several ways: I’ve allowed suffering in your life, so that you can learn to trust Me more. Also, I have blessed you with intimate experiences of My Presence—to boost your confidence in My perfection. My goal is for you to become so convinced of My goodness that nothing can shake your trust in Me. Then, your soul will be deeply satisfied—as with the richest of foods.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
~ Psalm 34:8 [NKJV]
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
~ Jeremiah 29:13
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods.
~ Psalm 63:5
