God reserves the best for the last, Satan does likewise. Satan specializes in averting God's blessing on people; anytime God sends a blessing, Satan tries all he can to stop the blessing from reaching the beneficiary. Daniel prayed for blessing, but the devil held back the angel who was bringing Daniel's blessing for 21-days. Aside the fact that job feared misfortune, the bible made it clear that he loved God and hated evil. Yet, Satan was able to manipulate his blessings.
The bible says we should watch and pray, otherwise we'd fall into temptation. But there's a difference between "falling into temptation" and "suffering temptation". Jesus was tempted, but He didn't fall. Samson fell for the devil's temptation. Joseph was tempted, yet he didn't fall. Temptation is the doorway to sin; if Satan forces you to open it, make sure you don't enter. Falling into temptation is the same as falling into sin.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; WE'RE IN THE LAST DAYS OF THE YEAR, AND TEMPTATION WOULD BE MORE INTENSE. WATCH AND PRAY! Have a most fruitful week! In Jesus precious name!
