Temptations are FOR you:
Temptations are FOR you and NOT against you. God's Word says that after you have SUCCESSFULLY dealt with temptations, your faith will bring out endurance and patience, which makes you PERFECT and FULLY developed-- receive the victor's crown of life.
"Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing."
(James 1:2-4 - Amplified Bible)
"Blessed (happy, [c]to be envied) is the man who is patient under trial and stands up under temptation, for when he has stood the test and been approved, he will receive [the victor’s] crown of life which God has promised to those who love Him."
(James 1:12 - Amplified Bible)
