Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Psalm 34:1-8 NLT

[1] I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.

[2] I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are helpless take heart.

[3] Come, let us tell of the LORD’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.

[4] I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.

[5] Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.

[6] In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened; he saved me from all my troubles.

[7] For the angel of the LORD is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.

[8] Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!

Reflection . . .

This Psalm is one of praise to God but also a testimony to others of what God has done for us!

Because the Lord is good to me . . .

I will:

  • Praise the Lord
  • Constantly speak His praises
  • Boast only in Him

Because it is fitting for us to praise the Lord . . .

Let us:

  • Tell the Lord’s greatness
  • Exalt His name together

Because we pray and the Lord answers . . .

We can taste and see:

  • Freedom from Fear
  • Radiating Joy
  • No Shame
  • Salvation from all trouble
  • Protection from the Lord

Taste and see that the LORD is good.

Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!

Psalm 34:8 NLT
