8 O taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints:
for there is no want to them that fear him.
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger:
but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
LIGHT from the WORD.
I love that statement in verse 8.
"Taste" is a word used to describe a definite experience
in our lives.
Once you "taste" something, it is distinctively recorded in
For instance, if I say, "apple," your mind instinctively produces
a picture of the apple, the smell of it, and the "taste" of it.
(Assuming you have tasted an apple!)
Again, assuming you have experienced it, if I say, "sulfuric acid,"
your mind recalls the experience and causes you to instinctively
You recall the smell of rotten eggs, and you do not desire to
experience the smell or taste of it.
Once a person truly experiences Christ in his/her life,
they realize the taste of God is "good!"
And that person will CONTINUE to desire that "taste!"
God's saved people have no "want" because they are
satisfied with the "taste" of HIM!

"I will bless the LORD at all times:
his praise shall continually be in my mouth."
If you have made that commitment, you will be
SATISFIED with God's presence, protection and
You will have no "want" that God will not
fulfill, because HIS wants will be YOUR wants!
And, be COMFORTED!
