Taste and See

Printable Version

Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD (Psalms 150).

Glory to God in Heaven. He is worthy to be praised. He is always faithful, He is the truest of friends. His arms are always open to welcome us. His eyes never shut from watching over us. He encloses us in the hollow of His hands to keep us from harm. He is the most faithful Father, our loving Lord. His might and power put the universe into existence and His wisdom constructed the smallest atom. Yet with all His wonder, with all His magnificence, He takes time to help the smallest of people, to hear a child’s prayer, and to mend broken hearts. Glory to God in Heaven. He is worthy to be praised.

It has been said that as we express gratitude to God for what we have, that He reminds us how we can really live without what we do not have. It has been said that if we are discontent, that expressing thanks to God can bring contentment. Praising God is healthful to the body and soul. Praise can bring us healing, it can bring us joy, it can bring us peace, but most important of all--it can bring us closer to God.

James encourages us, “Come near to God and he will come near to you” (4:8). We have a lot to be thankful for. But the greatest thing we have to be thankful for is that the God of the universe desires to have a relationship with us. He desires to draw near to us. He desires to walk with us in a wonderful an personal way. He wants us to know what His perfect love is like first hand, and He was willing to lay down His life to bring it to be.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends” (Jn.15:13). We have a lot to be thankful for. We have a heavenly Father who sent His only begotten Son into the world to be the instrument of grace and reconciliation. Jesus, God’s only Son, who came into this world to bring us life and life more abundant. He is the great Mediator, the Mender of broken relationships--Counselor to broken hearts, homes and marriages. We have much to be thankful for in Him. For through Him we have the courage to come near to God, to find peace in our homes, and to find freedom from sin.

During this time of year we shall fill our selves with all kinds of Thanksgiving delights. We generally know what suits our tastes and will probably get plenty of what tastes good. David tells us, “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him” (Ps.34:8). To taste of God makes the things of this world and sinful pleasures fade in comparison. If you desire to lose your taste for sin, then taste and see that the Lord is good. If you are wondering how to have peace in your homes and joy in your heart, then taste and see that the Lord is good. If you desire to experience true Thanksgiving like you have never experienced it before--taste and see that the Lord is good.
