TEMPTATIONS ARE CHALLENGES
When the enemy tempted My Son Jesus, it was to challenge that He was My Son and He had My authority on earth. When the enemy tempted My son Peter, it was to challenge that he knew My Son Jesus and the gates of hell would not prevail or overpower against His authority. When you are tempted it is to challenge that you are My child, born into a kingship that will rule and reign on earth even as it is in heaven.
Always remember who you are. Your trials, temptations, siftings and testings are to bring down the confessions of your authority and identity in Me. No man can stand in his own righteousness without sin in the hour of testings. But as you trust in Jesus My Son, Who passed all tests without sin, you are more than a conqueror through Him. He died in your place and has given you all that He bought and won through being the perfect sacrifice for your failings. Pray that you not be given over to the siftings of temptations. Pray that your faith does not fall and the confessions of your faith remain strong and established.
1 Cor 10:12-13 NKJV
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
Heb 2:17-18 NKJV
Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted , He is able to aid those who are tempted .
Heb 4:15-16 NKJV
For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
James 1:13-15 NKJV
Let no one say when he is tempted , “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
Matt 6:13 AMP
And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
