Have been thinking about temptations for the past few weeks-  It’s interesting to see that Job was tempted even though he was doing all the things right in the eyes of God:

Job 1:8 (New King James Version)

8 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”

Still, he has to go through temptations.   Same thing happened with Lord Jesus.  After fasting, he was led to a desert place to be tempted.  The point is clear: temptations are for everyone, whether the person is upright with God or not.  When one thing that he is strong in a way no temptation can harm him, that person better think twice and worry (verse 12):

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 (New King James Version)

12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. 13 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.

But God is faithful!  He will show the way out.  Hallelujah!
