Blessed. Few of us use the word; however, it’s a word worth thinking about.  We become so immersed in our busyness, circumstances, and problems that we miss the gift of being blessed.  How is it possible to be blessed when we face problems and even hardship?

When we’re blessed, we’ve received God’s favor through the presence, power, and peace of Christ, regardless of the circumstances we must manage.

The book of Psalms chapter 1 verse 1-3 begins with the definition of a blessed individual:

Blessed is the one who walks in the light, 

like a tree planted by streams of water,

yielding its fruit in season

and whose leaf does not wither. 

Whatever they do prospers.

Ultimately, how we live  reveals whether or not we’re blessed. Luke 1:45 says that we are blessed for believing God—belief is the key to living blessed. 

To be blessed is to be engaged with God’s purpose, believing each day is a gift. To be blessed is to have an interactive and ongoing personal relationship with God, anticipating the “more” of what God has planned with each step along the way.  To be blessed is to trust God, taking each step with confident belief God is present and continually at work, never failing. To be blessed is to finish the day strong.

The blessed do not step into the ways of people who separate themselves from God, living in the darkness and going their own way. But. The blessed immerse themselves in God’s ways day and night believing God.  In turn, the life of the blessed is fruitful and prosperous in the ways of God.  Believe and be blessed.
