Psalms 34:8 - Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
1 Peter 2:1-3 - Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
Oftentimes we go through life very focused on the daily drudgeries we have to go through and the tough experiences we endure. We deal with things like malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and evil speaking in some form or another. We may be tempted to retaliate in a similar manner under certain circumstances.
However, these verses remind me that life is more than dealing with issues and problems that the world throws at us. Life doesn't have to always be bitter. God invites you and me to stop what we are doing, lay aside those burdens for just one moment and taste the word He offers us.
God is telling us that life can be sweeter if we look to Him first. When we open the Bible and study its truths for ourselves, we will find that our perspective on life may change. God can give us a new perspective on life if we let Him into our lives. When we start to see how good God is to us, we will see that our issues and problems in life grow smaller and smaller in comparison.
We will find if we look to God first and trust in Him, if we desire to incorporate studying the Bible into our daily routine, God promises to show us His goodness and bless us. There may be blessings you didn't even you had the God has already graciously blessed you with! Come and take God's taste test!
