Here is a word for you from the Word.
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.NIV
Notice that first word, taste. Taste and see that the Lord is good. You realize of course that we are endowed with five physical senses: sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. What is it that’s distinctive about the sense of taste? I’ll tell you one distinctive feature of taste. If we see something, it’s external to us. If we hear something it’s external. If we touch something, it’s still outside us. If we smell something, it may be still far from us. But there’s one thing about taste: when we taste something, we take it right into us and it becomes part of us and I believe that’s why the Lord challenges us to “taste and see.” Don’t let me remain external, don’t let me remain something outside of you. Paul says in the New Testament, “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” You’ll never really have that hope of glory until you’ve actually tasted of the Lord, till you’ve taken Him within you and then you’ll know for sure, He is good. Not because the preacher says it, not because the radio evangelist declares it, but because you’ve proved it in your experience, you’ve tasted, you’ve invited the Lord to come in and be an integral part of your life and when you do that you’ll know He’s good. - Derek Prince
