Suffering Allows God to Best Satan

Stephen Charnock:

God, by his wisdom, outwits Satan; when [Satan] by his temptations intends to pollute us and buffet us, God orders it to purify us; he often brings the clearest light out of the thickest darkness, makes poisons to become medicines.

– Stephen Charnock, Existence and Attributes of God, 549
