The meek shall consume and be happy: they shall praise the Lord that seek Him: your heart shall reside forever. Psalm 22:26
Have you ever wondered why men and women stumble into pornography? Possibly you even struggle in that region. It is due to the fact they are not feeding on Jesus. They are searching for satisfaction in the evil pleasures of this globe, rather than the eternal promises of eternity.
Suppose you just completed a excellent meal and somebody knocks on your front door. You answer it, and they hold forth a plate complete of stale crumbs saying, “Take this. Consume.” You would say, “No thank you, I do not want that. I’m currently happy.”
When you feast on the goodness of Jesus, you will not be down a dark alley consuming tin cans with the devil’s billy goats.
What does it imply to “feast on the goodness of Jesus?” It signifies to locate your contentment in Jesus. How will you locate that? You are going to locate Jesus in the Word. For Jesus mentioned, “Search the Scriptures, these are they which testify of Me.” You are not going to be pure till you place your eyes upon Jesus, the a single who’s altogether beautiful, and gaze into His face in the Word of God.
“And Jesus mentioned unto them, I am the Bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall under no circumstances hunger and he that believeth on Me shall under no circumstances thirst” (John six:35).
Load up on the Lord Jesus Christ, and Jesus will come to be so valuable to you that you will not envy men and women searching for satisfaction in evil you will pity them. You will say, “I’d sooner consume dirt than do that” due to the fact you have a thing so excellent in Jesus.
