Are you hanging out with the devil’s billy goats??

By Adrian Rogers

BIBLE MEDITATION:

The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek Him: your heart shall live forever. Psalm 22:26

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Have you ever wondered why people stumble into pornography? Perhaps you even struggle in that area. It’s because they are not feeding on Jesus. They are seeking satisfaction in the evil pleasures of this world, rather than the eternal promises of eternity.

Suppose you just finished a wonderful meal and somebody knocks on your front door. You answer it, and they hold forth a plate full of stale crumbs saying, “Take this. Eat.” You would say, “No thank you, I don’t need that. I’m already satisfied.”

When you feast on the goodness of Jesus, you won’t be down a dark alley eating tin cans with the devil’s billy goats.

What does it mean to “feast on the goodness of Jesus?” It means to find your contentment in Jesus. How will you find that? You’re going to find Jesus in the Word. For Jesus said, “Search the Scriptures, these are they which testify of Me.” You’re not going to be pure until you put your eyes upon Jesus, the one who’s altogether lovely, and gaze into His face in the Word of God.

“And Jesus said unto them, I am the Bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).

ACTION POINT:

Load up on the Lord Jesus Christ, and Jesus will become so precious to you that you won’t envy people seeking satisfaction in evil; you’ll pity them. You’ll say, “I’d sooner eat dirt than do that” because you have something so wonderful in Jesus.
