6 For thou
hast made [shiyth] him most blessed [Barakah]
for ever: [`ad] thou hast made [chadah] him exceeding glad [simchah]
with thy countenance. [paniym] KJV-Interlinear
6 For Thou
dost make him most blessed forever; Thou dost make him joyful with gladness in
Thy presence. NASB
Made, 'shiyth,' means to appoint, set to be, to place, to make, to complete.
Blessed, 'barakah,' means to be prospered, sanctified, to collect in a pool, to present through.
Exceedingly glad, 'simchah,' means extensive blithesomeness, happy, glee, pleasure, rejoice.
Countenance, 'paniym,' means face, presentation, favor, forefront.
God sets or appoints the believer.
God blesses the believer, and causes blessings to come to others through the pool of blessings of the believer.
God is the source of happiness. Things are never the source of happiness.
And all these are available to the believer in the presence and favor of God, never in the presence of self or others.
We can only be in Gods presence while we are on this earth, by means of the fellowship concept, which is obtained through confession.
Blessings do not come to you because of who you are, or because of what you do.
Blessings come to you only by means of Gods efforts, by means of Gods plan, by means of Gods rules for the spiritual life. And then and only then, does God appoint blessings to you based on your adherence to His plan, His mandates, His expectations of you.
You really have nothing to do in the spiritual life but to listen, learn, and do what God teaches. In everything else in life, God provides the means, the method, the opportunity, and the results.
And as a result of obedience to His will, then happiness, genuine happiness comes into the soul and life of the believer.
