Our faith will indeed be tested, and that can come anytime. It could be when we feel we are spiritually strong, that we can stand any challenges, or when we are down physically, emotionally, financially, or when we are lonely, or even when we are in a position of power.
Jesus what tested in different areas, to misuse his power, to associate with the devil to get power and neglect the real purpose of God, and to abuse the position he is in God’s kingdom. So also, temptations come in different ways, such as lust.
Jesus overcame temptations using the scriptures, you must also use the word of God today to face any temptation that might come your way, and you will be victorious.
