Our granddaughter, Liberty, harvests her 1st green pepper from my deck garden. She’s been watching the pepper grow for days now and asks me every day, “Is it time to pick the pepper yet?” Today was the day! She’s so excited to twist the tender green vegetable and she says she will even eat it too.
Her eagerness reminds me of the verse, “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” (Psalm 34:8) I have to ask myself, just how eager am I to taste and see that the Lord is good? Admittedly, my mind and body sometimes hunger for other things or people. I like to think I hunger more for God, his word, and time with his people. But my actions do not always match what I know I should hunger after. Lord, I desire to follow after you, learn more of your ways, your likes & dislikes. When I seek refuge in you, I am blessed.
How about you? Do you hunger after God? How do you taste and see that God is good?
