Does temptation ever come from God?

James 1:13God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else.

Mark 7:15“You are defiled by what comes from your heart.”

Temptation originates not within the mind of God but within the mind of Satan, who plants it within your heart.

James 1:2When troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.

Although God does not send temptation, he brings good from it by helping you grow stronger through it.
