Have you ever tasted something and just needed more? Like that flavor that soon became your favorite flavor. The first batch of peanut butter cookies hot off the cookie sheet. You stuff the gooey mess into your mouth quickly panting because it’s burning your tongue but you don’t care cause it’s tasty! Or how about putting a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on it with a drizzle of hot fudge. I may just have to do some baking today.
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him. Psalm 34:8 Message
That’s how I’m feeling about the Lord this morning. When I think about His goodness and all that He’s done for me, I have an overwhelming feeling of deep and lasting satisfaction that can’t be described with mere words on a page. Excuse me while I take a moment to tell Him how much I love Him.
Oh God, my God, how awesome are the works of Your hands. Your promises are bookmarked in my mind and I’m constantly speaking them out-loud. In Your presence is fullness of joy and at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Who would want to live without you? Where would I be if you hadn’t loved me? Your Word is always alive and powerfully at work in me. It gives life to my flesh and strength to my bones.
Your Word is a light to my feet and you show me which road to take. I won’t be afraid because you are with me. If you see me going off the path, you quickly pull be back with your staff. You care so much for me that you’ve prepared everything I will ever need for my journey. I know I will arrive safely at my destination because I’m under your watchful eye.
“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!” Psalm 91:14-16 Message
