Temptation and Test

GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED BY EVIL

Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember His power: The day when He redeemed them from the enemy.

(Ps 78:41-42)

The Israelite defiantly challenged the faithfulness of God and tempted Him by their wicked ways. But their consequence tells us that God will not tolerate anyone tempting Him3.

They started to grumble against God not many days after they had been delivered from the oppression of the Egyptian Pharaoh. They witnessed for themselves the love that God showed them when He found a way for them to cross the Red Sea.

When they arrived in the Wilderness of Sin, they misconstrued the kind intention of God as brutal aggression against them (Ex 16:3). Basically, they twisted reality. They knew that it was not God’s intention to bring them out of Egypt to annihilate them with thirst, but they still made the accusation (Ex 17:3).

Tempting God also undermines His power. Ten of the twelve spies sent to survey the land of Canaan came back with bad reports. They underestimated the strength of the Lord to overthrow the Canaanites (Num 14:22).

Another form of tempting or testing God is to disobey Him. When God initially asked the Israelites to overcome the Canaanites, they did not because they were without strength. But once they grew strong, they refused to displace them completely. Instead, they used the Canaanites as labor (Josh 16:10, 17:13; Judg 1:27-36).

Consequently, they became ensnared by the idols of the Canaanites (Judg 2:11-13).
