Barak  – Blessed – Many Bible teachers say the word “blessed” just means “happy,” which is always circumstantial. It actually speaks of the far deeper idea of giving and humbling oneself in order to exalt another. Of the many occurrences of barak one that immediately stands out is in Genesis 1:22 “And God Blessed them,”. The Hebrew word barak is from the same root as the word berek which means “to kneel”. The heart of blessing is in humility. When God blessed His creation He knelt down to serve it, to provide for it and to give it life. How can you bless someone today?
