I Peter 2:3

now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
(NIV)


I thought about adding this verse in with the last one, but I wanted to keep it for today.

Today is Friday. It is the end of the week, a week of work, a week of challenges, a week of trials and the thought of upcoming trials. So, have I tasted that the Lord is good? I should give a resounding, "yes!"

Some people's weeks have been filled with bigger trials and bigger challenges, filled with heartaches, fears, and loss. Yet, we could all say that we have tasted that the Lord is good. I would love to go into a discussion on the goodness of God, but instead, I believe that we should ask a different question:

If you have not tasted that the Lord is good... Why? Why have you not tasted it? It is not that He is not good or that he does not offer His goodness for the tasting. So, ask yourself, "why?" Allow that "why?" to penetrate deep. Open up your Bible and let it pierce in and discern the answer to that question as it probes the thoughts and intents of your heart.

Pick your Bible up today, read it from the heart, and taste that the Lord is good.
