“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, the man that trusts in God, not in the way that seems right, or maybe even the easy way, will continually find abundant happiness.
Good things happen to the man that trusts God. 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 affairs. He obeys God and He sees, tastes and discovers that God is good, merciful, and favors him. Most of all, this man finds that, rain or shine, the Lord is all he needs. This is the reason this man is so blessed, so happy.
If there is a specific area in your life that the enemy is trying to pull you out of believing God about, make the gritty decision to trust Him at His word today with it. You will taste and see that the Lord is good.
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.
