I am reading the book Happiness by Randy Alcorn (yes, still reading). He makes the case that you could substitute “happy” in the place of “blessed” consistently if not always in the Bible. For example in place of “Blessed is the man who endures temptation” you can read “Happy is the man who endures temptation”. It feels different doesn’t it. Less sanctified and more real. And it opens up a whole new way of thinking about the promises of God.
