Weekly Verse - Psalm 34:8-10

Updated: May 10

Joy of the Lord

In this week's verses we see the simplicity in finding the sufficiency for our needs.

"O taste and see that the LORD is good:..."

Here the Psalmist is inviting us to experience God's goodness. The goodness of God is often taken for granted by His children. Consider the awesome wonder behind the phrase "the LORD is good." So many people have this misconception of a severe God who is full of "thou shalt not"s. Instead, remember, and remind others, that our God is a God of mercy, grace, and love who delights to give good things to His children.

"...blessed is the man that trusteth in him..."

The word used for "blessed" here ('eser) means happiness. We can live a happy life by placing our trust in the good God. So many people are seeking for happiness in all the wrong places. It's really as simple as trusting God, although that may not always come easily.

"...O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him..."

This verse does not mean that we should be afraid of God in a sense that He may do us harm, but rather it means that we must show Him reverence and honor, a godly fear. When we live with this kind of attitude toward God, we won't lack anything. God will reward our fear with His provision.

"...The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing."

The word used for "want" here (haser) actually means "lack." So when we seek the Lord, the good God will give us good things. We will not lack any good thing.

This week, if you are searching for happiness, if you are worried about your needs, if you feel that you are lacking any good thing, trust God, fear God, seek God. He is the only One who can meet all your needs physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

God bless.
