From the Notes of an Angel

I am an angel, a servant of the Almighty God. Praise His Holy Name.

Every so often we angels come before the Lord to present ourselves. Even the Almighty God knows the importance of good communication. Quite truthfully I enjoy coming before the Lord. I just love to praise His name!

This time, though, The Accuser came to the meeting. I don't know why, but I didn't like him there.

The Lord said to The Accuser, "Where have you come from?"

The Accuser, whom we also call Satan, answered, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it. I have been looking at all the people you have made."

Great, I wondered who he was about to stir up trouble. 

The Lord said to Satan, "Have you thought about my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him. He is blameless and upright. He is a man who fears me and shuns evil."

I had noticed Job's faithfulness to the Almighty. Not only does he worship the Lord everyday, but he also offers sacrifices for the sins of his children for the times they may forget to offer sacrifices on their own. Yes, Job is a man who worships God faithfully.

Satan tipped his head. It didn't take him long to come up with something nasty to say. "So Job is faithful, is he? Haven't you put a strong protection around him, his household, and everything he owns? You've bless the work of his hands! Of course he is going to worship you. His flocks and herds are spread throughout the land because they are so great. I wonder, though, if you stretched out your hand and struck everything he has, if you will see that Job will surely curse you to your face."

I shook my head. Even I could see that Job's faith was more than on the outside. In his heart lays a true love for God. He would stand strong in his faith no matter what happens.

The Lord said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands to do as you wish to test him. But, you are not to lay a finger on Job."

"No problem," Satan said as he left.

From where I stood, Satan looked a little bit too happy. I wonder what all he will do.
