“Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.”Psalms 34:8
Have you ever stopped to think how many different ways you can experience the Lord? Worship is multi-dimensional. With the use of our mind, God has allowed us the capacity to really know Him and love Him. Certainly we can read His word. And God does speak to us through the scriptures; what He has written, connects with us in a personal way. We can sense His presence. He is the God of all comfort and the Holy Spirit bares witness with our spirit that He is God. We can hear His voice. Whether it is a still soft voice deep in our soul or, as some have heard, an audible voice, God speaks to us. We can see His glory. Either through a beautiful sunset or a significant moment, we can see evidence of God. We can also use our inner mind and see Him with the eyes of our heart. When Jesus healed people, many others would come up to Him and touch Him. Have you ever reached out to Him, lifted your hands and experienced a moment as if you touched Him? David said that we can taste and see that the Lord is good. Just as much of an experience as taste can happen when we commune with God. Though God is a Spirit, He is weighty. God has substance. My friend, God is real. He is so much more then what we have been presented with in church. God wants us to know Him, really know Him in many different and personal ways. Today, determine to start spending time with God in silence and worship Him with the different senses. Love Him, worship Him, and experience Him today. Oh that you would taste of the Lord and know that He is good.
Father, I give myself to You. I want to know You in all of Your fullness. Help me worship You in new and fresh ways. Enlarge my capacity to know you, that I might love you more and more. In Jesus Name ~Amen!
