Taste and believe

By Ngozi Ngadi

The Word of God states that taste and see that the He is good (Psalm 34:8).  What if you could not see or taste it, would you still believe that the God is good?  That question has been on my mind for a while. What are your thoughts towards that? When situations arises and His promised words has still not come to full manifestation do you still believe that God is a good and loving Father?

I know what it feels like when God says ‘I have spoken and established My word and it must surely come to pass.  But something keeps holding or restricting the execution of the word that has been prophesied, affirmed and reaffirmed.  You must be wondering did God lie to you or did you get duped by Him?

There is an adage that says ‘Seeing is believing’.  Our eyes are meant  to see the great, beautiful, wonderful and mighty things that God has in store for us (Jeremiah 33:3).  I do agree that seeing is believing because when you see your eyes sends signals to your mind that this is true. It becomes real for your eyes has now seen the beauty of His promised works.

When you taste and see, you taste and believe that God is a faithful God and He will never leave you nor forsake you.  One day I went to the stores to buy some groceries. They were promoting a new brand of biscuits, a table was set and the biscuits nicely arranged and presented on the table.  First my eyes caught my attention to the biscuits on the table, simultaneously signals were sent to my brain of how sweet and delicious those biscuits would be only if I could just taste a little bit of it.  I began to imagine the sweetness of every crumbs in my mouth.  My next step was to go and taste it to believe that it is the best brand that I have ever tasted. I tasted it and it was up to my expectation, just as I thought it would be.

At that moment God spoke to me and said, the same way you have tasted those biscuits, He wants me to taste and and believe His sweetness to know that He is a good and faithful Father who will never fail me.  Do not wait until you have received the blessings, promises before you can taste and see that He is a good God and His love endures forever.  Start now to taste and believe by faith.
