Good and evil are not two equal opponents battling in this world. Christ has won the victory! He has already defeated Satan and his evil force.
In the book of Job, we see Satan approach God who is the supreme power in charge. Satan accuses Job of worshiping God because of the many blessings in his life. God does not will, but he allows Satan to cause great suffering in Job’s life.
WHY? So that the name of the Lord will be praised! Job endures the stripping of his wealth, the sudden death of all of his children, the betrayal of his wife and his closest friends, and excruciating pain.
In his many questions, he never sins. The famous words of Job cursed Satan, defeating his argument with a powerful blow. His words are a reminder for all who suffer:
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD!
