“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” Psalm 34:8, NKJV
In the Hebrew language, the word blessed in this scripture means “how happy!” Therefore, how happy is the man that trusts in God, not in the way that seems right to man, not in the deceitfulness of riches, not in a company or person, not in an opportunity with strings attached, not in pleasures, but trusting in God is where this man will continually find abundant happiness.
The man that trusts God has decided to hear what the Lord has to say and allows that to be how He lives, how he patterns his life, and how he handles his business affairs. He obeys God and He sees, tastes and discovers that God is good, merciful, favors him, and is on his side. This is the reason this man is so blessed, so happy.
Begin to truly trust the Father with everything in your life. You’ll see He wants you to succeed. He wants you to overcome. He wants to bless you over and over. When you allow Him to be Who you pursue, rely on and follow, you will experience how good God really is.
Prayer: Father, how blessed, how happy is the man that trusts in You! There is no one like You. I leap when I think about how good You are. Help me to realize how good You are and to simply trust You, for it is a sure blueprint to all of my happiness. You are my help and I will totally rely upon You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
