Where Will You Go?

Psalm 34:8(ESV) Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

David wrote this Psalm during one of his very many adversities. He does not just say “God is good”, but to taste first and see the Lord is good.

There is a song that goes-
I have decided to follow Jesus
I have decided to follow Jesus
No turning back, no turning back

In John 6 Jesus tells his followers he is the “bread of life,” his “flesh is true food” and his “blood the true drink.” This was a hard teaching and many left that day and no longer followed Him. Jesus asked the twelve if they wanted to leave as well. Simon Peter replied “Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.” (John 6:68, 69 ESV)

I believe Simon Peter tasted first. Simon Peter tasted and saw the Lord was good and knew there was no turning back.

For those reading this, some have followed Jesus their whole life. Others have met their Savior somewhere on the road of life and their life now is different than it was. But I think this question applies to both sets of women.

Have you tasted and do you know and believe the Lord is good, that He alone satisfies like no other thing or person can? Is there no turning back for you?
