One day, when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, Satan also came among them. 

We know the sons of God as angels who minister to God and act as messengers.  The fallen angels are those who, because of their pride, have turned away from God’s goodness.  The leader of these demons is Satan and we see in this accounting from Job that he slides into God’s presence under cover of his enlightened brothers.  We must always be on the lookout for Satan when things are going well . . . he uses the cover of the presence of the faithful to gain access to God.

God says: I know that Satan prowls the earth looking for ways to slide into your hearts but do not fear.  You have only to keep your eye on me, and your hand and your heart in mine.  All that is required is that you follow me.  My angels deliver messages, they watch over and guard you, they protect and defend you, they worship and sing praises.  I have named each of them as I have named you.  They have free will, just as you do, to turn toward or away from me.  They are my special creatures but even with their great beauty and expertise . . . they are not as precious to me as are you. For you are my own wonderful children. You are made in my image.  I see myself in each of you.  You are mine.

We may have difficulty understanding how God moves in our lives when there are billions of us to tend to.  Understanding how angels act on God’s behalf, when they appear in human lives, and why they are important, we may want to visit: https://catholicstraightanswers.com/what-are-angels/ or http://www.catholic.org/saints/angels/ or enter the word angel in the blog search bar and explore the world of these special beings.
