The world is alive and well and desiring you. It even knows what and when to offer it. So easily can we get ensnared...
"The flavor of the world on my tongue.
Where is that holy song that once was sung?
I've tasted and I've seen the Lord is good-
why do I not crave that which I should?
O God, You have but everything I need,
yet, unto other sources, do I cede.
I've grown addicted to another taste,
therefore, do I not prosper, do I waste!
O Set me free but yet again, I pray.
Cause me to crave the Truth, the Life, the Way.
The songs of You alone, Lord, to be sung;
and rid me of this taste upon my tongue!"
The Lord is good.
The Bible says to "...taste and see that the Lord is good." I've done that. Why, then, do I retreat to something less tasty? It may be easier to obtain, but its quality is nowhere near what the Lord offers!
What do you crave?
