Personal Faith

Psalm 34:1-10  (ID: 0560)

Just as David experienced trouble as he was fleeing from King Saul, so each of us faces difficulties—none more significant than our own sinful hearts. Thankfully, though, God stands nearer than we think, willing and able to rescue us from life’s pressures. In this message, Alistair Begg encourages us to call upon the Lord to rescue us so that we, like David, can “taste and see that the Lord is good.”


Taste and See That the Lord Is Good

Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.

1I will bless the Lord at all times;

his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2My soul makes its boast in the Lord;

let the humble hear and be glad.

3Oh, magnify the Lord with me,

and let us exalt his name together!

4I sought the Lord, and he answered me

and delivered me from all my fears.

5Those who look to him are radiant,

and their faces shall never be ashamed.

6This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him

and saved him out of all his troubles.

7The angel of the Lord encamps

around those who fear him, and delivers them.

8Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!

Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

9Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,

for those who fear him have no lack!

10The young lions suffer want and hunger;

but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
