“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” Psalm 34:8, NKJV.
In Hebrew, the word blessed in this scripture means “how happy!” Therefore, the man that trusts in God as his refuge, 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 who trusts God has decided to hear what the Lord has to say and allows that to be how he lives, patterns his life, and handles his affairs. He relies on God, sees 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. The Lord makes everything alright on the inside of him. 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 rest in Your will and walk in joy today. Help me realize how good You are and trust You, for it is the sure blueprint to my happiness. You are my help, and I will rely upon You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
