Spiritual Taste

July 3, 2018 // William Boggs

O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Psalm 34:8

God has provided the way of drawing our strength and hope through Him. It is to connect with Him daily. Yes, daily we must find our strength in Him! The problem is that many of us do not taste and see the full measure of His goodness and faithfulness. We eat natural food daily, and we normally wouldn’t think of going a day without food. But, we think we can go for days without spending time with God and survive. The truth is, we can’t.

Too often, we get ourselves caught up in the day-to day struggles of life, and “all of a sudden” we don’t see the goodness of the Lord anywhere. If we could be truly honest, we don’t taste God’s goodness like we once did, because our appetites no longer desire the things of God. If this is true for you, you may be wondering what could be dulling your appetite. What dulls our appetite for the things of God is listening to the wrong report. If we daily fill our
minds with the reports from the world, like the evening news, we can actually lose our taste for the things of God.

God is calling us to be re-awakened to His love and goodness on a daily basis. We have a loving heavenly Father who is wanting to overshadow us daily with His report and His blessings. Allow your spiritual appetites to be re-programmed today and come into a new awareness of God’s love, goodness, and faithfulness. Allow God’s love to flood your heart and you can’t be overcome with the troubles you face or the negative reports from the evening news.

Reflect on this today:
Do you daily…
taste and see that the Lord is good?
soak in the good report of the Lord?
encounter the fullness of God’s love?

There’s a new blessing and glory for the people of God to walk into as they find their refuge and strength in Him! Bring your Spiritual Taste Buds back into alignment with God and His Word.
