Blessings are most important to the human race. We all want things in our life to go well for us. We have a fixed in desire to have the best of this world’s goods, resources, or wealth. We believe that these tangible things will bring us the desires of our hearts. The well-known comedian/actor Dave Chappelle had arrived in the world’s big time with his own syndicated comedy television show and had agreed to a new contract with the network the comedy channel or comedy TV for 50 million dollars plus or minus. It was reported that at the time he was supposed to sign the huge contract, he had simply disappeared. Later he was found somewhere (I know not where exactly) talking about feeling empty, hollow, and void of any contentment and inner peace. This man surely having achieved the American dream and having so many current blessings and many more blessings to come his way in the future with such a rich new contract could not feel disappointment, despair, or despondency could he. Why would he run away at the very moment in time when he was about to receive his greatest blessings to date?

It is because true or real blessings that satisfy the soul (the real man or woman) cannot be found in things that can be grasped with the hand or looked upon with the eye, or tasted with the tongue, or heard by the ear, or smelled by the nose, nor can it be purchased at any price. Our Lord gives us a list of true blessings that are so dramatically opposite to what the world exalts as blessings that it would be laughed at and mocked by people if it were espoused in the halls of congress or in the British Parliament, or to the nations of the world at a United Nations meeting. Jesus Christ describes the man or woman that has found true and everlasting blessings with the following words: (all from the Amplified Bible)

Matthew 5:4 Blessed {and} enviably happy [with a happiness produced by the experience of God's favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His matchless grace] are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!

Matthew 5:5 Blessed (happy, blithesome, joyous, spiritually prosperous--with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the meek (the mild, patient, long-suffering), for they shall inherit the earth!

Matthew 5:6 Blessed {and} fortunate {and} happy {and} spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be completely satisfied!

Matthew 5:7 Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous--with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy!

Matthew 5:8 Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous--possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God's favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward conditions) are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!

Matthew 5:9 Blessed (enjoying enviable happiness, spiritually prosperous--with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the makers {and} maintainers of peace, for they shall be called the sons of God!

Matthew 5:10 Blessed {and} happy {and} enviably fortunate {and} spiritually prosperous (in the state in which the born-again child of God enjoys and finds satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of his outward conditions) are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake (for being and doing right), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!

Matthew 5:11 Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous--with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of your outward conditions) are you when people revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things against you falsely on My account.

Matthew 5:12 Be glad {and} supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you. [II Chron. 36:16.]
