Psalm 34:8

Oh taste and see that the LORD is good!

Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!   Psalm 34:8

In all of His works, the LORD shows Himself to be good.  Always.  Without fail.  But those who do not run to Him, who do not taste, who do not seek will only look from a distance and say “my way is disregarded by him; he is not good.”  This is the way of everyone unless the LORD in His mercy draws a person to seek Him.  Those who “taste and see” take refuge in Him.  And the LORD is such a strong refuge that a person can be called blessed, even while their troubles roar and surge at them. They are blessed because their trust and peace — because they themselves — are in Him.
