by Rev Joel Yong
And the tempter came and said to him, If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.
Notice Satan said “IF you are …”
He knew fully well Jesus was the Son of God.
But he sought to make Jesus insecure and need to prove his identity to Satan.
But Jesus was fully secure. He knew who He was and where He had come from.
Jesus was well assured of His identity and destiny.
The Father had put everything in Jesus’ control. Jesus knew that. He also knew that he had come from God and was going back to God.
That kept Him safe from the temptation of the devil that sought to make Jesus take control of His own destiny instead of trusting His life into the Father’s hand.
What about you?
Do you know who you are in God, and where you are headed in Him?
