Scripture Reading: 2 Chronicles 32:31

Usually people confuse tests with temptations. They are two different things. Tests come from God while temptations come from the devil. God tested Abraham by asking him to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice while our Lord Jesus Christ was tempted by Satan in the wilderness after His fast. Tests are good for our spiritual growth and development while temptations harm us and lead us into sin. God tests us to reveal our character; while temptations seek to destroy us. Tests are meant to develop our character like when Jacob had to work extra years to earn Rachel as his wife while temptations are designed to cause us to fall like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
