Psalm 34:8

“O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” (NASB)


“O taste (ta`am: eat, perceive) and see (ra'ah: behold, consider, perceive, enjoy, inspect, give attention to, observe) that the LORD is good (towb: better, well, precious, beautiful, pleasant); How blessed ('esher: happy) is the man who takes refuge (chacah: to trust, have hope in, flee to for protection, confide) in Him!”


O taste of, perceive and observe that the LORD is precious and beautiful; How truly happy is the man who places his hope and takes refuge in Him!


Are you truly blessed in all things? Does your happiness have conditions based upon your circumstances? David understood what it meant to run to the LORD in all circumstances, for within this place he knew that he was secure. God has not changed and neither have mankind’s circumstances. Today, we are still in need of a Solace and One to confide in at all times. True happiness, godly joy, cannot be shaken or altered when one has tasted and seen of the goodness of the LORD. Today, be sure to have your hope in Him alone, for He is beautiful, precious and good - now and forevermore.
