Remember who you are and act accordingly.
In Matthew 4:3, Satan meets Jesus in the wilderness to tempt him to sin; to derail him from God’s plan.
Driven there by the Holy Spirit, Jesus resists the temptation to eat bread, to doubt his identity, to be derailed by Satan’s agenda and a host of other things. As a result, he comes out stronger than ever.
Jesus knew who he was. He rested in that even in the midst of suffering. He let his suffering and deprivation strengthen him, instead of giving in and letting his flesh weaken him. He knew who he was. He acted accordingly.
By God’s grace, let’s do the same.
