Discover for yourself that the LORD is kind. Come to him for protection, and you will be glad (Psalm 34:8, CEV).
This week’s I Love the Psalms theme is kindness.
I don’t know about you, but I love heading off the beaten path and doing some exploring. I like trying new foods, enjoy meeting new people, and seeing new sites. I suppose it’s because I’m incurably curious. There are things to discover.
Today’s verse from the Psalms invites us to do some exploring and make a discovery. Discover for yourself that the LORD is kind. Come to him for protection, and you will be glad (Psalm 34:8, CEV).
We can read about the kindness of God. We can hear about it from others, but there is nothing quite like experiencing God’s kindness firsthand.
Exploration and discovery always require a step of faith. God invites us to give Him a try—to take that step.
Response: LORD God, give me the courage to take steps of faith that bring me closer to you. I want to discover and experience your love and kindness for myself. Amen.
Your Turn: Have you discovered God’s kindness firsthand?
