It is much easier to walk in the blessing of God when we submit ourselves to what God has already decided to bless. However many times we make decisions and choose a path and ask God to bless the decision we made.
I think the path of blessing lies in choosing God’s path.
Here is a short list of what God blesses.
Those who stay away from wickedness are blessed. “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.” (Psalm 1:1, NIV84)
Those who embrace God are blessed. “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.” (Psalm 2:12, NIV84)
The righteous, those whose conduct and character are Godly, will be blessed. “For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.” (Psalm 5:12, NIV84)
The pure in heart and those who seek God will be blessed. “Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God his Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob.” (Psalm 24:3–6, NIV84)
Those who have had their sins forgiven by God and do not embrace deceit are blessed. “Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.” (Psalm 32:1–2, NIV84)
The nation who follows God will be blessed by God. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.” (Psalm 33:12, NIV84)
Those who trust in the Lord and not in the proud or what is false will be blessed. “Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.” (Psalm 40:4, NIV84)
Those who care for the weak will be blessed. “Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the Lord delivers him in times of trouble. The Lord will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes.” (Psalm 41:1–2, NIV84)
Those who spend time in the house of God and the presence of God will be blessed. “Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Selah” (Psalm 84:4, NIV84)
Those who acclaim God will be blessed. “Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O Lord.” (Psalm 89:15, NIV84)
Those who embrace God’s correction and discipline will be blessed. “Blessed is the man you discipline, O Lord, the man you teach from your law;” (Psalm 94:12, NIV84)

Those who reverence God and delight in God’s commands will be blessed. “Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in his commands.” (Psalm 112:1, NIV84)
Those who seek God’s help and hope in God will be blessed. “Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God,” (Psalm 146:5, NIV84)
Those who seek and find wisdom and understand will be blessed. “Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding,” (Proverbs 3:13, NIV84)
Those who listen to God and seek God daily will be blessed. “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord.” (Proverbs 8:34–35, NIV84)
Those who are generous will be blessed. “A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.” (Proverbs 22:9, NIV84)
Those who are humble, meek, cry out for righteousness are merciful and pure in heart seeking peace will be blessed. “”Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.” (Matthew 5:3–9, NIV84)
Those who keep following Jesus will be blessed. “Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.”” (Matthew 11:6, NIV84)
Those who persevere in truth will be blessed. “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12, NIV84)
Those to take to heart God’s Word will be blessed. “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.” (Revelation 1:3, NIV84)
