Temptation and Test

GOD PERMITS TESTS TO COME OUR WAY

God permits tests to come our way to train and to build up those He loves. He does this with good and noble reasons, so that we may be refined.

Even if God allowed trials to test His people, it doesn't mean that evil is from Him. The Bible records that He sometimes allows Satan to do his work as a form of trial for His people. But Satan cannot have his way with us without the consent of God, that is, if we do not live in sin: "We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him" (1 Jn 5:18).

More often than not, tests appear to be a form of punishment from God towards His people for failing to do their part in driving out the pagans:

I also will no longer drive out before them any of the nations which Joshua left when he died, so that through them I may test Israel, whether they will keep the ways of the Lord to walk in them as their fathers kept them, or not. (Judg 2:21-22)

One example is the story of Habakkuk. Having asked God to deal with the sins of His own people, Habakkuk was dumbfounded by the response of God to raise up Babylon, a very wicked nation, to chastise the nation of Israel -- His dearly chosen ones.

Although it was God's will that such an unbearable suffering be inflicted upon the Israelites, it, in fact, revealed His righteousness.
