Prosperity
The word happy is a good rendition of blessed ('esher), provided one keeps in mind that the condition of "bliss" is not merely a feeling. Even when the righteous do not feel happy, they are still considered "blessed" from God's perspective. He bestows this gift on them. Neither negative feelings nor adverse conditions can take his blessing away
Circumstances = dictates our happiness (feelings)

Christ = dictates our blessednesses (fixed)
Psalm 1
"Blessed" - the word used here is...blessing from the Most High God to mankind.
A wise man said that happiness is like a cat. Seek it and it will run from you. But go about your business steadily day by day and soon it comes and curls up at your feet.
Decisions we make based on
the advise we receive
Direction one is headed

Belonging with the wicked
“Be out-and-out for Him; unfurl your colours, never hide them, but nail them to the mast, and say to all who ridicule the saints, ‘If you have any ill words for the followers of Christ, pour them out upon me... but know this – ye shall hear it whether you like it or not, - “I love Christ.”’” (Spurgeon)
Where do you find your
Pleasure?
The word “delight” means to take great pleasure in...
...It has the idea of a consuming
passion that controls your life.
Everyone “delights” in something.
Mark this well. Your “delight” determines
your direction.
The Bible is bread for daily use,
not cake for special occasions.
Someone has
written...
Meditation has the idea of digesting something thoroughly, of ruminating (going over in the mind repeatedly, slowly) on it, of chewing the cud (of God's Word of Truth), of considering a verse by pondering it from various angles.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
--Author Unknown
When you truly delight in the Word, you will have a desire to spend time in it and to meditate on it.

In the following verses from Psalm 119, observe the association between
delight and meditation.
15 I will
meditate
in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

16 I will
delight
myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did
meditate
in thy statutes.

24 Thy testimonies also are my
delight
and my counsellors.
47 And I will
delight
myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.

48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will
meditate
in thy statutes.
77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my
delight.

78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will
meditate
in thy precepts.
Are you wanting God's
Blessings on your life?
Joni Eareckson Tada wrote

The branches of growing trees not only reach higher, but their roots grow deeper. It’s impossible for a strong tree to have high branches without having deep roots. It would become top-heavy and topple over in the wind....The same is true with Christians. It’s impossible for us to grow in the Lord without entwining our roots around His Word and deepening our life in His commands.” (Diamonds in the Dust)
This Psalm may be regarded as THE PREFACE PSALM, having in it a notification of the contents of the entire Book. It is the psalmists's desire to teach us the way to blessedness, and to warn us of the sure destruction of sinners. This, then, is the matter of the first Psalm, which may be looked upon, in some respects, as the text upon which the whole of the Psalms make up a divine sermon. - C. H. Spurgeon
