‘O taste and see that the Lord is gracious, blessed is the one who trusts in Him.’ (Psalm 150 v 8)
Have you ever wondered exactly what the word “blessed” or “blessing” means? Jesus used the word “blessed” to describe the inner quality of those who trust God. This blessedness is a spiritual state of well-being and prosperity – a deep, joy-filled contentment that cannot be shaken by poverty, grief, pandemics, persecution, war, or any other trial or tragedy we face in life. In human terms, your situation may feel very far from “blessed”, but because God is present with us through these difficult times, we are actually blessed by Him, in the middle of our trying situations. Imagine that – having a deep sense of joyous contentment when all seems lost! This is our miracle working God.
