Not without leave…

Thomas Manton on Matthew 6:13…

And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.

Satan, he cannot tempt without leave from God. As a lion cannot stir out of his cage, until the keeper brings him out, so the devil, this roaring lion, is held by the irresistible chains of God’s providence, and cannot stir until God brings him out.
