Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

– Psalm 34:8 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

We can experience God’s blessing when we stop trying to figure Him out. This Psalm is a song of deliverance: David is afraid, but God brings him out of his fears. When we just drink deeply of His word we will be satisfied. When we pray with no other agenda except to worship and honor Him, we will experience Him as a place of refuge. To study is good, but it is only a means to another end – to magnify and exalt the name of the Lord.
