Then the Spirit led Jesus up into the wilderness so that the devil might tempt him. 2 After Jesus had fasted for forty days and forty nights, he was starving. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “Since you are God’s Son, command these stones to become bread.” 4 Jesus replied, “It’s written, People won’t live only by bread, but by every word spoken by God.” 5 After that the devil brought him into the holy city and stood him at the highest point of the temple. He said to him, 6 “Since you are God’s Son, throw yourself down; for it is written, I will command my angels concerning you, and they will take you up in their hands so that you won’t hit your foot on a stone.” 7 Jesus replied, “Again it’s written, Don’t test the Lord your God.” 8 Then the devil brought him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 He said, “I’ll give you all these if you bow down and worship me.” 10 Jesus responded, “Go away, Satan, because it’s written, You will worship the Lord your God and serve only him.” 11 The devil left him, and angels came and took care of him. (Matthew 4:1-11, CEB)
Since you are the Son of God!
The devil is not questioning Jesus here, the devil is saying that Jesus is the Son of God and these are things He can do according to the scriptures.
How often do we test Jesus, or God and question their existence or plan? The devil never questions who Jesus is but tries to get Him to. Know that God always knows who you are and it is the devil that tries to get you to question your identity and if God is there and still loves you.
God always is there and always loves you and you will always be a child of God.
So since you are God’s child, what will you do?
Love People, Love God.
