7. “Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
10. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:7, 10).
Temptation means to persuade or entice a person to do something wrong or unwise.
In most cases, people are tempted through their mind. What constitutes temptation to people, in most cases, has to do with their heart’s desire. People are tempted to pursue their heart desire contrary to what God are expecting them to do.
The faithfulness of God allows every man to be tempted within his ability; therefore, God does not allow us to be tempted beyond our ability to overcome. 1 Corinthians 10:13
He provides a way for us in his Word to win over temptation, therefore, instead of complaining what one needs to do is to find that way of escape in the midst of the temptation through the word of God.
If you don’t find it what do you do?
What you do is to pray for God to show you that way of escape.
He also gives us the grace to bear temptations just as He gave Jesus Christ the grace to endure and overcome his temptations. We should also understand that God tests us but the devil tempts us. The intention of God in testing is to promote us but the intention of the devil in temptation is to discredit and run us down.
Dear beloved, the victory of Jesus over Satan assured us that with the word of God we too can overcome the wiles of devil.
