Deuteronomy 6: 16 – 19 (Also reference Matthew 4: 12 & Luke 4: 7)
Do not tempt or test the Lord your God, instead diligently follow His statutes and His ways which he has shown you and you will fulfill that which is right and good in His sight: that it may be well with you, and that you may experience all that He had promised according to His word.
Obedience is an act of faith and trust and not dutiful submission. We are to willingly put all our confidence in God and his providence which gives us cause to obey him without doubting or second-guessing.
Do not tempt fate as proof of your confidence, but by your obedience, demonstrate your faith.
