Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
You can truly taste something only when you eat it. I can show you an apple and describe that it is beautiful, ripe, sweet, and soft. You can mentally form an image. However, you will never experience the taste until you eat it. The same way you can only taste God when you go through very trying circumstances and sufferings.
When you go through difficult financial, relational, or physical circumstances, sometimes it is impossible to solve them. This is an opportunity for you to taste God in action. When your self-efforts or when those who love you the most, hurt you the most, trust in God and he will never fail you.
The secret lies in putting this truth into practice, by making it such a dominant theme in your life that you view every event, every sorrow, every prayer with the unshakable conviction that God is totally, spotlessly trustworthy. There is no problem too big for God.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT).
