His presence delights…

God: treats us delightfully….

Psalm 34:8 (KJV) “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him”.

We enter relationships sometimes and it is with tenderness that we open ourselves to revealing things about who we are and the background we come from; it is a very hesitant moment as a rose unfolding.

We don’t know that we can fully trust or disclose who we are and if so what the other individual will do with that information. Obviously, we are guarded with our lives and don’t want to be betrayed and hurt any more than we ought to be.

With God it isn’t like that: He already knows, He invites intimacy, He wants us to dive into it with Him; but He isn’t pushy. The Psalmist invites us to “taste and see”; we can take our time and imbibe of the things of God. See how careful He is with us, a little bit of trust here and a bit of sharing there.

Not in a rush, but do take part in what He is offering: it will be the best thing that ever happened to us in our lives…

    I love how you note this – to taste and see! And I was teaching about the physical senses this last week so this verse fits right in! But so wonderful news u present.
    Also – side note – bill hybels once taught about using wisdom with disclosure and sharing certain things – and how to refrain or use wisdom is not always lacking transparency or not trusting (even though sometimes it is – just as u noted) and I live how he pointed out that disclosing is done with care for multiple reasons – especially if in leadership and whatnot- but truly how cool that none of that applies with God and what u sweetly present and remind us of!!!💜💚💚

    I talk about the need to build trust first, in my piece titled “Edges first…then work your way in.” You might like it. I’m learning how to be kind an gentle and to listen. I demonstrate what I mean in the piece “What do people do, who don’t have Jesus.”

    I think you and I have the same approach to life as we do ‘God work.’
