Jeremiah Burroughs Shows How when Faced with Affliction, God is Undoubtedly Loving and Protecting Us

October 7, 2015

 

"Therefore thou art afflicted, because God would humble thee, and the great design that God hath in afflicting thee, is, to break and humble thy heart; and wilt thou now maintain a spirit quite opposite to the work of God? For thee to murmur and be discontented, is to resist the work of God; God is doing thee good, if thou could see it, now if he be pleased to sanctify thy affliction, to break that hard heart of thine, and humble that proud spirit of thine, it would be the greatest mercy that ever thou had in all thy life; now wilt thou yet stand out against God?
