Testing a schedule task

I have created a simple test schedule task. This is the code.

import frappe

def create_device_journal():
    # if initial setup not completed, return
    if not (frappe.db.a_row_exists("Company") and frappe.db.a_row_exists("Fiscal Year")):
        return

    _create_device_journal()


def _create_device_journal():
    todo = frappe.get_doc({"doctype":"ToDo", "description": "test"})
    todo.insert()

# try running the function
create_device_journal()

I want to test it before putting it to erpnext schedule task. I tried running it using python device_journal.py but I got an error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "device_journal.py", line 22, in <module>
    create_device_journal()
  File "device_journal.py", line 11, in create_device_journal
    if not (frappe.db.a_row_exists("Company") and frappe.db.a_row_exists("Fiscal Year")):
  File "/home/chris/frappe-bench/env/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/werkzeug/local.py", line 342, in __getattr__
    return getattr(self._get_current_object(), name)
  File "/home/chris/frappe-bench/env/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/werkzeug/local.py", line 305, in _get_current_object
    raise RuntimeError('no object bound to %s' % self.__name__)
RuntimeError: no object bound to db

I think I did not do it right. How do I test the simple task I made?

Use bench execute {{path_to_your_method}}

eg:
bench execute erpnext.hr.doctype.employee.employee.validate_employee_role
