Richard Sibbes (c.1577-1635)

“Suffering brings discouragements, because of our impatience. ‘Alas!’ We lament, ‘I shall never get through such a trial.’ But if God brings us into the trial he will be with us in the trial and at length bring us out, more refined. We shall lose nothing but dross (Zechariah 13:9). From our own strength we cannot bear the least trouble, but by the Spirit’s assistance we can bear the greatest.”
