The Bible says, “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in HIM. O fear the LORD, ye HIS saints for there is no want to them that fear HIM.” (Psalm 34:8-9)
BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:
The LORD uses “words” that every person on Earth can understand! We all have taste buds, Amen! Scientists believe that there are 2,000-6,000 (or more) taste buds on our tongues. If you want to taste things just touch stuff with the tip of your tongue to learn if the object is bitter, sweet, salty, or sour. Every body has taste buds but everything does not taste the same to everybody! But there is one thing for sure, JESUS CHRIST who is the same forever. He is Alpha, Omega, and everything in between. HE NEVER CHANGES!
The problem is with us because we constantly change second to second, minute to minute, day to day, year to year. Last year, we liked the color red but this year, we like the color blue, or yellow, or green, or pink, or purple! You get what I mean?
Think about it for a moment:
(1) You change your clothes and shoes everyday – I hope! If you are dating, you don’t wear the same underwear and outerwear for the same person! For example, you may really be stuck on a certain person so you put on your very best for him/her. This means you take a shower, shave, comb your hair, put on make- up, use deodorant or perfumes to attract this individual. You will spend hours upon hours getting ready for this one date. Earlier in the day, you may pick up clothes from the cleaners…or draw a tub of bath water and put in perfumed salts/spices…or go to the beauty salon…or sip wine to get in the mood! In fact, you may look like a Hollywood movie star. Hopefully, your date will not arrive three (3) hours earlier as you won’t be ready! Most of all, you do not want this person to see you as you really are as they might run away! In fact, some of them are still running!
(2) All Mankind is changed! If you watch the ancient and old movies on the television, you will see how Mankind is changed. You rarely (if ever) see horses, donkey, or covered wagons on the highway unless there is a national parade! If you visit museums, you will see historical relics from cavemen to the present and you will marvel at these things. Modern man now take to the skies in airplanes to travel everywhere. If you want to fly to London, you take a jet!
In summary: The WORD of GOD tells us, “O taste and see that the LORD is good…” GOD IS LOVE and GOD NEVER CHANGES! The LORD does not reject you because you didn’t take a bath, or your teeth fell out of your mouth, or your hair is nappy, or you ain’t got a job, or you messed up your life, or you lost your car or house, or you ran your family away, or you performed something wicked, or you spiritually, physically, or mentally hurted someone! Instead, the LORD GOD will forgive you – if you express godly sorrow for your sins! Don’t you take another step this way or that until you get yourself right with the LORD JESUS CHRIST! Stop right now and talk to the LORD and be honest! Get down on your knees and sob like its your last day on Earth. The LORD will come into your life – let HIM!
Have a Blessed Day!
