God will not suffer his people to be tempted: If his grace were not sufficient, not only to save them from, but to make them gainers by it.
1 Corinthians 10: 13 ” Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out. “
This temptation, the working of envy and discontent, is very painful. In reflecting upon it, the ” psalmist ” owns it was his folly and ignorance thus to vex himself. If good men, at any time, through the surprise and strength of temptation, think, or speak, or act amiss, THEY WILL REFLECT UPON IT WITH SORROW AND SHAME. We must ascribe our safety in temptation, and our victory, not to our own wisdom, but to the gracious presence of God with us, and Christ’s intercession for us

Colossians 1: 17 ” Christ existed before all things, and in union with Him all things have their proper place. “
Those that with an upright heart or pure, put their trust in God, shall never want matter for thanksgiving to Him – Because the Bible revealed that the faith of the genuine believer has always been rooted in the firm conviction of God’s EXISTENCE and the ASSURANCE that He rewards those who diligently seek Him
