"Let no one say that he is tempted by GOD...each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desires" (James 1:13-14). When we are under the "veil of GOD" nothing can hurt us; it is when we are tempted away from HIS protection that we suffer. Do we consider ourselves being "tested" by GOD when we suffer bad circumstances or evil in our lives? GOD cannot be tempted by evil, nor does HE use evil to tempt us (James 1:13). GOD'S WORD IS OUR TEST; whether we believe IT and ACT ON IT. Psalm105:19, "...The WORD OF THE LORD TESTED him". Does GOD need to know more about us by TESTING US? Or, IS TESTING FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ONE BEING TESTED? BELIEVE IT! ACT ON IT! DID WE PASS THE TEST?
