In Genesis chapter 12 God tells Abraham that he would be blessed that all the nations of the earth would be blessed through him. Wow! What a statement! In Galatians 3 and Romans 4 we discover Abraham was blessed because he had faith in God. Pretty simple…being a person of faith means we are blessed.
In the Hebrew blessed means to be happy and to be the receiver of good fortune. It means to be straight and is related to the word translated righteousness. The happiest people in this world and in the next will be righteous. They have been straightened out before him in whom there was no crookedness.
It means to guide right. Those are the happiest people who have been guided into the paths of righteousness. It means to advance or prosper. One derivative means connection. Only those branches abiding in the true vine will bear fruits of joy.
Another is relation. The happiest people in this world and in the next are those that are in proper position in relation to God; the church; the bible, etc.
