The devil said to Jesus, “If you are God’s Son, tell this stone to turn into bread.”
After Jesus was baptized, God the Father said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Then Jesus was led into the desert to be tempted. After forty days, the enemy spoke today’s Scripture. The devil was saying, “Jesus, prove that You’re really the Son of God.” Jesus refused. He said, “Man doesn’t live by bread alone.” He was saying, “I don’t have anything to prove. My Father announced who I am. I was His Son in the water, and I’m His Son in the desert. I won’t waste My time trying to convince you of who I am. I have a destiny to fulfill.”
As with Jesus, it really doesn’t matter what the enemy or other people think of you.
You have nothing to prove. When God looks at you, He says, “That’s My child, in whom I am well pleased.” Others may not be for you, they may try to discredit you or withhold their approval, but big deal. You are approved. You are accepted. You are anointed. Now step into your destiny.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that I can feel good about who I am because You made me just as I am and You are well pleased with me. Thank You that I can be free from trying to prove who I am to others. I’m happy to be Your child and to keep moving into my destiny. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
