Let us not forget the devil even approached Jesus, but Jesus passed the test!
“Again the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. ‘All this I will give to you,’ he said. ‘If you bow down and worship me.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Away from me, Satan! For it is written: worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.” Matthew 4:8-11 So we should follow Jesus’ example.
“Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself…But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.” Hebrews 3:1-3, 6
And just remember, “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13

It’s like the devil is giving us his all before God says, “Enough.” And unleashes the flood gates of heaven.
