Try God

Psalm 139:16           Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.

Psalm 34:8   O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

Psalm 119:103         How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Psalm 139:23           Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;

Psalm 26:2   Examine me, O LORD, and try me; Test my mind and my heart.

NASB Translation

I can’t see God, I can’t feel Him, but I knew then, and now, that He was, and is. I came to Him after only a few visits to church with my grandmother Six. I can’t tell you how I became drawn to God, I only know I walked down the isle to the alter of that church, and gave myself to him.  I didn’t know much about what it would mean in my young life, I just went forward. Like Abraham, I didn’t know where I was going, I just wanted to go. The day of my salvation was my first taste, or try of God, and I have been trying Him over and over again ever since.  Paul prays that his converts will grow in the knowledge and wisdom of Christ. My growth started the day I received Jesus as my Savior, it was awhile before I accepted Him as my Lord, and that is very important. But Jesus started my education in Him right away. I didn’t know He was doing anything, and most of the time didn’t know what He did, until it was done, and sometimes not until many years afterwards. As I grew, I began to crave more and more of His knowledge and wisdom. I asked Jesus to help me see myself as He sees me, and to do whatever He wanted to help me grow up in Him. Jesus has and is answering those prayers, but thankfully He doesn’t give it to me faster than I can understand, and apply it. After a short time until now, I think a better word is trust God, not try. For a lot of people, when they first think about humbling themselves to the Lord, they think of it more of a risk. As my relationship experience with Him proceeded, I could see what Jesus had done, and was doing in my life, and my trust of Him grew right along with it. Taking a risk is one thing, trusting in Jesus is never a risk. He knew me before He made me, He knows me now, and He knows everything I will do, or be in the future. Every circumstance God allows, or puts in my life is for my own knowledge, wisdom, and for His purpose and will.
