Psalm 34:7-8

Psalm 34:7-8

Psa 34:7  “The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.”

[Here is the summary of Life with you, Lord: you prepare all and then look for partnership with us, for fear, meaning awe, trust, surrender and obedience from us and then you deliver us. You send your angel to surround us with love, power and grace. You have him deliver us constantly, as we fear you. Help us, Lord, to fear you, to live in awe of you at all times.]

Psa 34:8  “Taste and see that the LORD is good;”

[Here’s a challenge: if you don’t believe this, taste and see what the Lord really is. Start trusting and see what He does.]

“blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.”

[How happy, protected, helped and safe is the man who acts on this Truth and runs to God for protection and shelter. Again, the partnership: God stands ready to act, waiting for us to seek refuge in Him.]

Lord, help us to live in awe, obedience and trust of you every day, especially today, that we may be beacons of glory for you!
