It doesn’t seem possible to actually fulfill this command, does it? How can anyone “taste” or even “see” God to know that He is good? Fortunately, “taste” can also be translated figuratively as “perceive” which should help, but “see”? Sometimes I wonder if David was just hungry, so he used his hunger as inspiration for his writing.
David is definitely arguing for an active perception of the goodness of the Lord, and that is often through seeing His handiwork, sometimes by viewing the heavens, or seeing nature as it surrounds us and fills us with awe. And when you do, it doesn’t take long to see after all.
Lord God, help me to see what I’ve been missing gazing at my cell phone or my computer screen all day. Show me the wonder that only You possess, that unmistakable wonder that the Lord God has revealed through His handiwork. May I be close enough to taste it, so that I may rejoice again. Thank You for all of Your marvelous work. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
