Psalm 34:3-4, 8-11 (NIV)
Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Jesus appears to us in many ways. Truly and unequivocally, all believers experience him in our hearts when we accept him as Lord and Savior. And in Scripture and Christian history, we also see Jesus encountering people beyond just the confines of cognition and emotions and through visions, dreams, audible voice, or a tangible sense of his immediate presence. In fact, God invites us to “taste and see” his goodness because mere mental understanding is not enough.
Prayer: “Lord, open my heart to you. Help me to ‘taste and see’ your joy, hope, and life-giving goodness today. Stir up a greater passion for your name. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
