DAY 25
GOD IS BLESSED  (God’s Joy)
God’s blessedness means that God delights fully in himself and in all that reflects his character. This definition indicates that God is perfectly happy, that he has fullness of joy in himself. We imitate God’s blessedness when we find delight and happiness in all that is pleasing to God, both those aspects of our own lives that are pleasing to God and the deeds of others. In fact, when we are thankful for and delight in the specific abilities, preferences, and other characteristics with which God has created us as individuals, then we also imitate his attribute of blessedness. Furthermore, we imitate God’s blessedness by rejoicing in the creation as it reflects various aspects of his excellent character. And we find our greatest blessedness, our greatest happiness, in delighting in the source of all good qualities, God himself. The Westminster Catechism says that the  chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever.
