Remedy (6). The sixth remedy against this device of Satan is, seriously to consider, That the design of God in all the afflictions that do befall them, is only to try them; it is not to wrong them, nor to ruin them, as ignorant souls are apt to think. ‘He knoweth the way that I take: and when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold,’ saith patient Job, 33. 10. So in Deut. 8. 2, ‘And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thy heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments or no.’ God afflicted them thus, that he might make known to themselves and others what was in their hearts.
