GIVING | Psalm 34:8 |Anne Bowman

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good.

When I was in my early 20’s I had the privilege and blessing to live in Sweden & work at a church for a year. During that time, I was able to travel in Europe & the States with a group from the church. During the end of our time in the States, I remember sitting in a cowboy church service. I was down to my last $20.00, and I didn’t have a credit card. Apple Pay & Venmo didn’t exist back then. I had just one $20.00 bill.

While sitting in the church service, I remember God spoke to me so clearly and said, “Tithe all that you have”. Surely, I must have heard wrong? I heard it again, and I listened. I gave what I had, and I trusted the Lord. Later that evening a pastor who I had never met came over to me. He said that The Holy Spirit told him to give me $100.00. I was stunned and in shock. Jesus provided for me.

Isn’t it just like our God to give us more than what we need, or provide for us in ways that we never would have expected?

I have tasted, and I have seen that the Lord is good. He provides! I can honestly say that this moment was the cornerstone to my faith foundation in my relationship with God.

What are some ways that you have tasted and seen that the Lord is good? How has He provided when there didn’t seem to be a way?
