This Psalm goes on to say, “Blessed is he who takes refuge in Him” (Psalm 34: 8). I find it interesting that the Psalmist almost teases us to check God out. “Taste and see” for yourselves. The Psalmist has assurance that when you do, you will be satisfied. In fact, more than satisfied. You will be blessed as you take refuge in Him. Do you need a refuge today? God is waiting for you to reach out to Him.
