“Oh taste and see, that the Lord is good: blessed is the man the trusteth in Him.” — Psalm 34:8
Couldn’t sleep a few nights ago, and this verse came to mind! Eventually, had to loook it up and study it!
Some key words:
🎯Taste: to taste, perceive
🎯See: to see, discern, consider, behold, enjoy, joyfully, look one upon another, regard, to mark, view, observe, TO FACE (this makes me think how often in my studies I realize that’s how He wants us to know Him, face to face!)
🎯Good: good, beautiful, best, better, bountiful, cheerful, favor, joyfully, merry, kindly, gracious, most, pleasure, pleaseth, prosperity, sweet, wealth, favored, good in every way, sensual goodness,(as in tangible), intellect goodness, moral goodness, having benefits, welfare, prosperity, bounty. Basically, if it’s any kind of good? It’s found in Him and His Goodness!!! ALL the things good!! 🤗👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
🎯 Blessed: this one is pretty amazing— blessed, happiness. From a root word meaning to go straight, to advance, to be led, to go, to make progress, to set right, to be made HAPPY!
🎯Man: valiant man or WARRIOR, strong man, to be strong or valiant, to be mighty.
🎯Trusteth: to trust, to be careless (as in having no care!) to confide in, have hope in, take refuge in!
Way better things to be thinking about, as compared to the things we often see around us on social media and especially, the news.
As we ‘Taste’ and ‘See’ (know Him face to face) that the Lord is GOOD in every way, we are BLESSED —we advance, go straight, are MADE HAPPY, make progress and are set right! We are not only Happy and advancing, we are STRONG, VALIANT, WARRIORS! (A Happy Warrior! Love it!) we are made blessed when we trust in Him, making Him our refuge, having no cares!
I hope this blessed somebody!! 😍🤗🙏🏻
