2BC: The Well

Discovering God's Purposes Together

Devotion for June 15, 2009: “Try the Lord!”

Psalm 34:8

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.


One of my enjoyable moments in life is when my wife Leslie asks me to taste something she is cooking.  It lets me know that something good is on the way.

The Psalmist said to taste and see that the Lord is good.  If we simply are willing to take a little of the Lord in, we will want more.  The Psalmist was so certain that God is good that he added, “Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.”

How do we “taste and see”?  That is what the 90 days of Catch the Wave is all about.  It is to help you find a new, meaningful relationship with the Lord.

The story is told of the woman who wanted to be buried with a fork in her hand.  When asked why, she explained that she loved dessert.  When dining with friends in their homes she was delighted when asked her to keep her fork – because she knew the best was yet to come.  She wanted a fork in her hand to say to all who viewed her body that she believed the best was yet to come.

Get ready.  We will start with a taste, but by the grace of God we will get to the best of God in these days ahead.  Get ready!  We’re going to catch a wave!

      2. Do you want a holy passion for God and His ways?  Explain:
