Psalm 34:8

Psalm 34:8

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man who trusts in him.
Psalm 34:8

When I really believe, understand, and remember that God is good, it will change the way I live!

When I read David’s words in Psalm 34:8, it reminded me of the story of Joseph who must have had a “God is Good” t-shirt on under his tunic, because he definitely lived his life knowing that. And it affected the way he lived.

In chapter 40 of the book of Genesis, we see Joseph sitting in prison, having been falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife. He was probably still thinking about how his brothers had sold him into slavery. How did he handle all this? Well, we don’t see anywhere in the scriptures where he complains about his life or feels sorry for himself, like I might have. Despite all Joseph went through, he didn’t lose sight of the fact that God is good.

You might be going through a tough time where people have treated you poorly. You’ve been doing your best, but things just don’t seem to have worked out. Well, God’s plan and will for your life will make sense one day when the story is complete. And when you see the whole story, you will say, like David and like Joseph, “God is good!”

Trusting in Him,
