This passage of scripture speaks of tasting to see that the Lord is good. How do we begin to taste that something is good? We rely on our senses to determine the quality and level of goodness. With the Lord, we must rely on our spiritual senses to understand how good He is. In the Old Testament it speaks of the Promise Land as a land that flowed with milk and honey which brought to mind two of the essential for living, the fertile and the sweet or good. Things done for the Lord are fertile and grow, and that type of obedience is pleasant to the soul.
Tuesday - Thanksgiving - Philippians 4:4-6
Paul's message here is that as we follow the Lord in ever deepening relationship, we can live a life that is joyful, able to put up with a lot without being anxious but trusting in the Lord. Having a peace within that passes the understanding of this world because it gives us the assurance that we can bring all things to God in prayer and supplication, thanking Him for the answers that are on the way.
Wednesday - Mercy - Titus 3:5
We ought to be thankful for when it comes down to the truth, the Lord saved us not because or through what we have done but because of His own compassionate mercy. He washes us with the water of baptism for the forgiveness of sins and renews us through the cleansing of the spirit by way of the fire of the Holy Spirit, purging us to a wonderful, amazing purity.
Thursday - God's Wisdom - Romans 11:33
Paul was in awe of the depth of the wisdom (understanding and knowledge) of God, because of how He could know what we are and will go through; how we faced the pressures; and what the outcome will be. And in His richness of love, forgive and reveal His plan and way for us to follow letting us know that He knew all along what was needed. God's unfathomable ways are something else.
Friday - God's Judgment - Psalm 36:6
The Psalmist came to realize and be amazed by the long suffering of the Creator of mankind. David was amazed and yet so thankful for the way God held back His judgment against men, giving them every opportunity to return to Him. Yet we know that God's judgment will be true and will come upon both the righteous and the unrighteous according to His design, His plan, His commandments. It is a part of His will and covenant.
Saturday - God Remembers - Isaiah 49:15-16
The prophet gives us the message from God that He does not forget us or forsakes us, but remembers us in such a close relationship that it is like a good mother with her newborn child. The prophet lets us know that that mother, good mother, would forget her child long before our Lord in heaven would forget about us. And He has the imprints in His hands to prove it.
