Musing on Psalm 34:8: Taste and See

This is one of my favorite verses. I love to open up God’s word, taste the promises and see Him come through in a mighty way.

It’s true. Blessed is the man who trusts in God. Maybe not in physical ways, but spiritual. God does care more about your heart and where you spend eternity than He does your physical comforts in this temporary life.

Wednesday, I’ll be sharing a most powerful personal experience. I tasted. I saw. And boy did it impact my life. I’m forever changed–and this just happened last week. Please, please come by and experience my own personal miracle. 

Musing/Meditation prompts: Think on the times you opened up and sampled His word, how new insights and wisdom as well as comfort and direction flooded your soul. Did it create a taste for the goodness of God? Count three things He’s done in the past 24 hours that were good to you? Ask the Holy Spirit to help you out if you’re stuck and can’t think of a single thing. Think about your favorite sweets. What is it about them that you love? How is God’s word and His goodness sweeter? Can you honestly say you’d rather have God’s goodness than that favorite dessert? If not, spend some time in prayer and ask God to change your heart.

This next question may sound random and not mesh with what we’re musing on, but I have a reason. It has to do with Wednesday’s post. I have more than ten Bibles in my house. It isn’t a question to make you feel guilty, it’s just to lay some ground work for Wednesday. 

How many Bibles 
do you have in your home?

  1. I have a shelf full–and we've donated through the years. Part of that is still from when Doug was in seminary though, and back then we couldn't look up different translations at the click of a mouse:)

    This is one of my favorite verses too. His words are so so sweet.

  2. I cannot wait to read about your experience on Wednesday. 🙂

    We have probably about 7 or 8 Bibles at our house right now. We host a Bible study here, so we have extras. 🙂

  3. Ooo, I'm intrigued! Um, I think we maybe have 3 Bibles not including all of the Bibles on our electronic devices, including a Kindle, an iPad, and two iPhones. 🙂

    And God has been teaching me more and more lately to give my mornings to Him, and he's using that time to teach me. Thanks for your prayers and constant encouragement in this area. You bless me, friend!

  4. lol ALOT of Bibles. God has answered so many prayers…He's always there for me no matter what…it's a great feeling.

  5. How many Bibles, umm? Quite a few…I think I'm a translation horder. Haha!

    Also, I'm really excited to hear about your experience from last week!!

  6. We have 11–I think I counted. Maybe more. The one I use most is my NIV that my parents gave me about 18 years ago. (And another Bible that's very special is the one from my Nana for my 13th birthday.)

    Can't wait until Wednesday!

  7. You have me antsy to see you Wednesday post to hear about your life-changing "taste and see" experience!! Those are BEYOND cool – and necessary for a growing, vibrant faith. How many Bibles do I have? Too many to count and more than I need. Unless I'm writing a Bible study. 🙂

  8. I can't wait to share it on Wednesday! Yay!

  9. Can't wait until Wednesday! I loves these posts! It's like Weekday Sunday school!!

    Off the top of my head, I counted 6 Bibles and one extra one on my Ipad. So 7.

  10. Jessica, I've moved in the past year, and yes, a year is not enough to get organized. LOL. So I know where my personal Bible is, and my toddler's two Bibles, my Bible app on my phone, and…that's all I know of. 🙂 I love that verse too! The Lord IS so good!
