EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

TITLE: GOD TAKES DELIGHT IN SUFFERING FOR HIM
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
Today’s key verse shows that it pleased the Lord for Christ to suffer! God allowed the sufferings because of the blessings that shall follow. It is by these sufferings that the pleasure of the Lord shall be satisfied because the Lord takes pleasure in suffering.
God takes delight in suffering for Him. He came and exemplified it, so none is exempted from suffering for God. Since God gave up Jesus for buffeting, and gave up Job for suffering, and gave up Paul for buffeting. The Lord permits suffering for righteousness because of the great joy when the rewards are received.
