“O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” – Psalm 34:8
Take refuge in Him who is infinitely wise. Take refuge in Him who is merciful. Take refuge in Him who has created the heavens and earth with His mighty hands.
Jesus says, “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”
I fed myself for years. Drugs, sex and alcohol were consumed in excess. Those were my remedy and my refuge. Was it all good? In a stupor I thought so!
I sought refuge spiritually in just about every religion and philosophical system known to man. I wanted answers and I wanted to show everyone else the way. None of these empty wells satiated my thirst for peace in my heart.
Today, I declare that the Lord Jesus is good! We must taste first to know. He is willing to feed us even more than he does the creatures of the earth. He showed me how worthy I was to Him by bringing me to His table to eat and to drink. How much more blessed I am!
I wrote a song about my testimony. I wrote this very early on when I was learning to play guitar and record. Take a listen.
