“There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved.” Psalm 46:4-5

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them — because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4 [See also Psalm 110:2, Zechariah 2:5.]

True Christians, in a right spirit, are still subject to temptations from within and without; but watching unto prayer, they do not fall by them. On the contrary, as trials and temptations are great helps to reveal their hidden infirmities and stir them up to be more cautious, serious, and faithful — they are followed and rewarded with great and glorious victories.

Temptations are not indeed joyous in themselves — but are attended with good fruit and blessed effects in the faithful. Hence James bids us count it all joy when we fall into divers trials and temptations. What reason have those to be afraid of trials and temptations — who find that every one carries a new blessing along with it? Yet we must never yield to temptation when it comes in the form of solicitation to sin. For if we do, we grieve the Spirit, dishonor our Heavenly Father, and Jesus is wounded again in the house of His friends. Such temptations are not from God — but Satan, and are to be zealously resisted in promised strength.
