Last night I was meditating on Isaiah 43:3, but focused on “I will be with you.”
This morning my first thought was “savor the goodness of the Lord.” Psalm 34:8 says, “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”
Savor means: enjoy or appreciate something pleasant, esp. by dwelling on it; relish, enjoy to the full, appreciate, delight in, revel in, luxuriate in, bask in. It is another word for mediate. I was savoring in the truth of His ever presence in my life through every circumstance.
Here is a few lines in a song the Holy Spirit gave me years ago. It is called “The Song of the Altar.” It is a great illustration of savoring His goodness.
I set my eyes on You and I gaze into Your face. I bask in the love of Your eyes full of grace. No one can comfort me like You O Lord. I will make Your presence my abiding place, as I hide in You from the tempest of this storm. Yes, I’ll hide in You as I bow and worship at Your feet.
