Matthew 4 vs
3》》” Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”》》NKJV》
According to Matthew 4:1 Jesus was led by the Spirit to be tempted of the devil after He had fasted fourty days and nights. So the devil started tempting Jesus with some conditional questions. First, the devil questioned the Sonship of Jesus “If you are the Son of God”. Yes, the devil questioned Jesus’ identity to God the Father. Meanwhile, in Matthew 3:17, when John was baptising Jesus, A voice from heaven spoke that _“This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”_
So the devil will always question your identity with the Father. Are you sure you are the child of God? Are you sure you are born again? It is one of his tricks. The devil used “IF” on Jesus. But Jesus didn’t meet that condition of the devil to prove whether He was the Son of God or not. In other words, your failure to meet the conditions of the devil means you really know your identity and authority in Christ. Thus, you don’t need to prove your identity to the devil based on his terms and conditions because when the Father declared you as His Son, then you are truly His son. Hallelujah!
Therefore be very much assured of who you are in Christ based on God’s revealed word; not because the devil wants you to prove it. Jesus didn’t change the stones to bread; He didn’t throw Himself down; He didn’t worship the devil and that didn’t make Him less the Son of God. You haven’t signed any contract with the devil, so you can always refuse to meet his conditions. With this revelation, you can effectively exercise authority over the devil and anything ungodly. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
_Dear Wise Father, I thank You for the wisdom, revelation and illumination that come from Your Spirit. I graciously choose to serve and meet only Your conditions not the terms of the devil. Jesus is my only Lord and Saviour so He is my all in all. Like Jesus I refuse to meet any terms and conditions of the devil. For I know who I am and what I possess in Jesus Name ! Amen !_
