Walking, Standing, Sitting with GOD… - What does it mean to live a blessed life? Who or what influences you most? What makes you happy? The word “blessed” implies happiness (’esher) or contentment – “to be fortunate, prosperous, and favoured by God”. David reminds us in Psalm 1 that true happiness is found only in having a covenant relationship with God, and in the willingness to live under the authority of God’s Word.
