“It is God who makes us able to do all that we do” (2 Corinthians 3:5). When I read that verse, it makes me feel optimistic about life – that it’s full of possibilities, if the God who created everything is the One enabling us. In the book of Job, conversations take place in heaven. They’re conversations that Job himself isn’t privy to, but they concern him. First, the devil makes the accusation that Job’s only interested in serving God because his life’s going well (Job 1:9-10). Later, when Job’s experienced tremendous loss, Satan says he hasn’t cursed God because nothing’s happened to him personally (Job 2:4-5). God disproves his point by allowing Satan to hurt Job, but He had to allow it. Satan can’t hurt anyone without God’s permission, and that includes us.
