Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him. Psalm 34:8
In Exodus 32 the Israelites convince Aaron to make an idol and the shape that comes out from melting gold is a calf. They then build an altar and worship this idol or god. It is interesting that the word god is in small letters. They had a party. God is so angry that he decides to destroy the Isrealites but Moses pleads with God to save their lives. God listens to Moses and does not destroy them but he does let them suffer the consequences of their disobedience.
Moses had been on the mountain for forty days and he had tasted and seen that God was good. He obviously had a close relationship with God because He spoke to God who was ready to destroy the Israelites for their disobedience. The picture above is my granddaughter, she is jumping into a lake. She is safe and secure. She has her life jacket on and her mom and dad are close by so she feels free to jump into the water with no worries. We can have that same freedom with God. If we will only taste and see that God is good. He promises us eternal life. We need to embrace the second half of salvation. What do I mean? When we accept Christ as our savior he forgives us of all our sins. But somehow we forget the inheritance that we receive. We are free in Christ. We are free to taste and start living like we are accepted, secure and significant. If you click on the word Christ, you will be taken to the page of Who We Are In Christ. We are safe in God’s arms. We can be free to start living our eternal life.
Father God, let me taste and see that you are good. You are the alpha the omega the beginning the end. You know each one of us. You want us to be victorious and to live lives that are free from condemnation. You want us to take our thoughts to you. You do not want us to be anxious or fearful. Today, I place my trust in you and I seek to be who you say I am. Blessings.
