Jeremiah Burroughs On How Examining the Heart, Allows the Christian to See God Using Affliction for Their Sanctification

September 8, 2015

"This knowledge of our hearts will help us to contentment, because by this, we shall come to know what is most suitable to our condition. As thus, a man that knows not his own heart, he thinks not what need he hath of affliction, and upon that he is disquieted; but that man or woman that hath studied their own hearts, when God comes with afflictions upon them, they can say, I would not for anything in the world have been without this affliction, God hath so suited this affliction to my condition, and hath come in such a way, that if this affliction had not come, I am afraid I should have fallen into sin."
