Job 1:7

 
And the Lord said to Satan, "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the Lord and said, "from going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it."
Job 1:7

It would appear from reading this that God did not know what Satan was up to. But God knew exactly what he was doing. He tells him to consider His servant Job and brags about him. God knew that Satan was just walking around and seeing what he could destroy next. Satan questions God and in the next few verses, he tells God, you have blessed him mightily, but if you were to take it all away, I bet he won't do so well. And we read that God allowed it.

This is what Satan does. He goes into the presence of God and back to earth. Just looking and wondering. Probably looking for opportunities to do harm. No matter what Satan is doing or the reason for coming and going, we can know that he still has to answer to God. I'm so glad that God is still in control and nothing happens outside of Him allowing it.

God is still in control.
