These are my thoughts.
Sometimes a story can help us better understand things, the
Lord wanted people to understand, those that did not was because they refused
to believe by faith.
Job 5:1-3King James Version (KJV)
5 Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?
2 For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one.
3 I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.
Job 5:1-3 Good News
5 Call out, Job. See if anyone answers.
Is there any angel to whom you can turn?
2 To worry yourself to death with resentment
would be a foolish, senseless thing to do.
3 I have seen fools who looked secure,
but I called down a sudden curse on their homes.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
1 We as Christians should say prayers and call out to
the Lord, God will hear us if we are His followers, He only hears the sinners prayer
from the lost. We should not rely on angels but only on the Lord, who may send
us and angel.
2 Worry does not do any good, Jesus taught about
worrying and said it can not add a day to our lives, we put our trust in the
One who has control.
3 We should not curse others, and we as Christians
should pray for the foolish, this are the ones that do not accept Jesus.
Keep our eyes on Jesus.
