Looking Straight Past Satan to God

In the academic classroom and in the apologetics discussion, the agency of Satan in our suffering may lift a little of the burden of God’s sovereignty for some; but for others, like Job, there is more security and more relief and more hope and more support and more glorious truth in despising Satan’s hateful hand and looking straight past him to God for the cause and for His mercy.
