God created Lucifer (later called Satan) for the very same reason he created all of us - to be recipients of His Divine Love. The only fitting response is to love God back.

Like us, Lucifer also has the free will to reject God's Love, which he did. We must be careful we do not do the same. 

May God give you peace.

Nietzsche 1875 Wilfrid Friedrich Nietzsche
I am convinced (just like Isaiah 45:7) that God created "negative intelligent energies" (demons) for his "dualistic" creation (our "jungle").

Demons, are at God's service so that Job said : “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil ?” (Jb 2:10)
Those demons were NECESSARY for his dualistic creation. 

Without demons, God's dualistic creation wouldn't be possible.
