temptation

the first thing I wanted to bring up is Job. you probably have already read the book of Job, but the first part is super interesting to me. it’s a dialogue between Satan and God. basically, you see God allowing Satan to tempt Job and all that horrible suffering. so, in that instance, it was Satan tempting Job in his suffering, but it was God who allowed it. so, we see God’s sovereignty in that and Satan has to ask God for permission; God has power over Satan.  from what i have read in scripture, it is not God who tempts us but He can allow it. here are a couple of good articles for further study
