“Try it for thirty days. If you are not completely satisfied with the results, return the unused portion and you will receive a complete refund!”
“We guarantee that your pain will be gone in fourteen days and your
joints will become pain free and function with no limitations or we will
refund the cost of the tablets – plus the shipping and handling
charges! How can you lose?”
Guarantees for anything and everything seem to be very popular. Most
advertisers, manufacturers and marketing experts have combined their
efforts to sell their products and give us the assurance that they will
work – or else.
But that’s nothing new. In fact a king made that claim about his God
years ago. David said, “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is
the one who takes refuge in Him.”
He’d been through sickness and survived. He was hunted and escaped.
He was emotionally drained and overwhelmed with guilt. He was so sick
that his bones were wasting away. He watched as nations rose to
prominence and collapsed. He saw armies that were well prepared lose
battles. In fact, if we were to make a list of everything in his life
that had gone wrong or if we were to compile a catalog of the disasters
he faced and overcome in his life, it would be a book that would be very
difficult to carry from one place to another.
Yet, with no hesitation
he said, “God’s good! Try Him. You’ll see!”
Prayer: Help us Father, to recognize Your goodness in our lives. May we see Your hand at work and rejoice! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
