Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV) “Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. 8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
BLESSED (Bible Dictionary) 1) a blessing is a public declaration of a favored status with God, “Dude, in Christ you are BLESSED!” 2) blessing endows power for living a life of abundance hope, joy, peace and purpose; again, “Dude, in Christ you are BLESSED!”
Ephesians 1:3 (NLT) “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.”
