Finding Goodness in God

In uncertain times, we all long for refuge, comfort, and goodness. Psalm 34:8 invites us to “taste and see that the Lord is good.” As we walk alongside the hurting, lost and broken in our communities, God’s goodness is a wellspring we can draw upon.



Psalm 34 has been treasured for millennia as a source of hope. Likely written by King David, it was composed during a dramatic escape from enemies. Despite danger, David exhorted others to trust in God’s faithfulness. Through the ages, Psalm 34 has reassured many believers of God’s good plans.


What does it mean to “taste and see that the Lord is good”? This verse points to an experiential, firsthand encounter with God’s goodness. As we spend time resting in God’s presence through prayer and Scripture meditation, we begin to perceive His gentle care and concern for us. God's goodness manifests as divine peace and comfort even in life's storms.


Tasting God’s goodness also means seeing and savoring His blessings each day - family, friends, provision, health, purpose. Gratitude opens our eyes to notice and appreciate the good things He has prepared for us.

As we taste and see, God’s goodness becomes tangible, filling us with hope. This strengthens and equips us to walk compassionately with the hurting in our communities. We can assuredly guide them to Christ, the source of true goodness.


Whatever you are facing today, you can take refuge in God's goodness. Taste and see for yourself - spend time resting in His presence. Allow thankfulness to open your eyes to His blessings. God’s goodness will fill you with hope to share. May you be blessed on the journey.
