How did Job’s change in circumstances begin?

The Bible reads, “One day the heavenly beings came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. The LORD said to Satan, ‘Where have you come from?’ Satan answered the LORD, ‘From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.’ The LORD said to Satan, ‘Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man who fears God and turns away from evil.’ Then Satan answered the LORD, ‘Does Job fear God for nothing? Have you not put a fence around him and his house and all that he has, on every side?’” (NRSV, Job 1:6–10)
