Why God allow Satan to tempt believers?

Satan is a tempter but God is Loving father and his wisdom can’t measured…God uses this Satan’s temptation to test the level of Faith of His Children and so that they can grow in faith, simply speaking to give them promotion

As believers experience the attacks of Satan, they can trust the truth of Romans 8:28, “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God…” Therefore, the assumption is that we will experience “good” things and “bad” things, but “all” of these things can be made to contribute toward “good” ends as God works them out. So even the attacks of Satan, although evil, can and will have a “good” result, ultimately, as God uses them to conform us to Christ, His Son (see Romans 8:29). Attacks from Satan, along with all other tribulations, can cause believers to love God more, resist Satan more, practice patience, and grow stronger in our faith in many other ways. Praise God for His sovereign protection. Thank Him for His plan to make everything—even Satan’s attacks—“work together for good” for you!

God allows Satan to tempt us so we will seek more of God. God uses Satan to accomplish his will, and God’s will is always to bring himself more glory through his people loving, pursuing, and seeking him more. Satan is used by God for this very purpose. When you are tired, you need God more than ever. When you are about to do something significant for the Kingdom of God, you need God more than ever. Is it any wonder then why God allows Satan to tempt us during these most vulnerable moments? God uses Satan like God used the thorn in Paul’s flesh:

So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (1 Corinthians 12:7-10)

To be perfect in Love.

“One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them. The Lord said to Satan, ‘Where have you come from?’ Satan answered the Lord, ‘From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it.’ Then the Lord said to Satan, ‘Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.’
“ ‘Does Job fear God for nothing?’ Satan replied. ‘Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.’ The Lord said to Satan, ‘Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger’ ” (Job 1:6-12, New International Version).

I think if our faith if truly stable, and we simply believe God, even temptation come to us, we won’t be tempted. When we look the life of Joseph. The woman tempted him twice, but he was not tempted.

i think this world is full of evil. Human can have free choice, so God has to respect human’s free will.
