Everyone desires to be blessed by God. It doesn’t matter if they are believers or not. We all desire to see God’s blessings and goodness in our lives, either consciously or unconsciously. Fortunately for us, this desire is not one-sided. Just as we desire God’s blessings, He also desires to bless us.
God works with times and seasons, which means He can set out specific periods to bless a man. However, if you are not discerning, you may miss your season of blessing. This is why we have put together 13 signs God is about to bless you. Knowing these signs will help you prepare and position yourself for your season of blessing.
What Does the Bible Say About God’s Blessings?
Blessing means receiving favor, mercy, and other benefits from God. To be blessed by the Lord means that you are a partaker of His promises and grace. God is a generous God who desires to give good things to His children. This is evident in His promises in different scriptures.
Genesis 12:2 (NIV) – I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
Hebrews 6:14 (NIV) – says, I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.
God’s blessings can be physical, material, and spiritual. But when we speak of blessings, we often mostly think about material things. We limit God’s blessings when we think of it only in terms of material things.
Everyone enjoys God’s blessing, believers and unbelievers alike. That’s why Matthew 5:45 (NIV) says – That you may be children of your father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
However, there are aspects of God’s blessings that are reserved only for believers. These are called spiritual blessings. In this regard, we talk about the gift of salvation and the benefits of salvation.
Ephesians 1:3 (NIV) – Praise be to God and the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
God’s blessings make us rich and add no sorrow, whether it is material or spiritual. God gives the best gifts, and He also gives generously. When He is ready to bless you, certain things show that God is about to bless you.
What Happens When God is About to Bless You?
Just because you can’t see the blessings of the Lord doesn’t mean He is not planning to bless you. God is gracious; as such, He is always willing to bless His people. Nevertheless, His blessings may not always come suddenly. Sometimes certain things take place before God blesses a person.
Before God blesses a person, there is usually a period of waiting. This is the period between the promise and the fulfillment of the promise. When God told Abraham He would have a son, the promise didn’t come immediately.
Abraham waited 25 years before he received the promise. This was also the case with Joseph and David. Joseph became a prime minister and David a king years after the promise was made.
The waiting period doesn’t mean God is unfaithful or untrue to His word. He just takes His time to prepare us for the blessings ahead.
A Season of Testing.
Often, God’s blessings come after a trial or difficult time. This doesn’t mean God tests us to see if we will fail before blessing us. He doesn’t test us, but He allows difficulties in our lives so that we bring Him glory through them.
Through our valley experiences, God strengthens and makes us mature enough to handle His blessings. If Joseph hadn’t served Potiphar, he might not have had the experience needed to be a prime minister.
An Increase in Faith.
Trials increase our faith. Hence, God allows us to wait through trials because He wants to build our faith in Him. He desires us to come to the point where we rely on Him completely. When this happens, the result is that we will give glory to Him when He eventually blesses us.
Now that you know what happens when God is about to bless you, you can look out for signs of the coming blessings.

13 Signs God is About to Bless You.
Sometimes we become aware of God’s blessing only when it becomes evident in our lives. This is why God’s blessings often come as a shock to us; almost as though we never prayed for them or we were not expecting them.
When God is about to bless a person, there are certain signs that are hard to miss; these signs are meant to prepare you for the actual blessing.
We have provided 13 of those signs that you can watch out for. When you start seeing them in your life, it may be proof that God is about to bless you.
When God is about to bless you, peace is one of the first signs you have. He fills your heart with calmness and peace, which flows to all other aspects of your life.
It is a sign that God has answered whenever you pray to God regarding anything, and you have peace. Philippians 4:7 (NIV) – And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus.
This Scripture precedes verse 6 of Philippians 4, which commands us to pray about everything instead of being anxious. It says when we lift our requests before God, He answers us first by filling our minds with peace.
In other words, even when you are yet to see the manifestation of the answers to your prayers, God’s peace builds faith in you.
Another sign of knowing that God is about to bless you is that your faith becomes stronger than it used to be. The Bible says those that seek God must believe He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him diligently. Faith builds hope and makes your heart expectant of the answers to your prayers.
Once you become very expectant and sure that you have received from God, then get ready for your blessings because they are certainly on the way.
You know you are about to be blessed when you constantly enjoy divine favor. This makes you receive favor from people you know and those you don’t know.
Those who have found favor with God will ultimately find favor with men. Proverbs 16:7 (NIV) – When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.
Apart from receiving favor from men, you also notice that you have ease. The things you struggled to do or get before comes easily to you without so much struggles. Favor opens doors to us that our efforts would not.
Absence of News.
The Bible says God’s blessing makes rich and adds no sorrow. Hence, proof that God is about to bless you is the absence of bad news in your life.
He will also make all things begin to work for your good, even those things that were not working before. Romans 8:28 (NIV) says – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
When you notice an abundance in your life, it’s a sign that God is up to something remarkable. This abundance can be in the form of material, financial, or human resources. Having resources that are beyond your immediate needs is a pointer to more of God’s blessing.
God knows you can’t enjoy His blessings when you or a loved one is battling ill health. So, when He wants to bless you, He gives you health, strength, and vitality. Good health is evidence of God’s coming blessing(s). Scripture says He will bring health and healing to you so you can enjoy abundant peace and security.
When you start having a bubbling feeling of gratitude or your heart suddenly becomes thankful for even unexplainable reasons, it’s a sign God is about to bless you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16 and 18 commanded us to rejoice always and have a thankful heart. A thankful and cheerful heart pleases the Lord. God takes pleasure in the praises of His people. So, if you have a thankful heart, you win over God’s heart and attract His blessings.
God also blesses those who rejoice and are joyful always. A joyful and cheerful heart attracts favor and blessings not just from God but from people too. Hence, being thankful and joyful is a sign that you are entering your season of blessing.
When You Suddenly Become a Blessing.
God doesn’t just bless us for our sake only. He blesses us so that we can be a blessing to all those around us. So, another sign that God is about to bless you is that He gives you a generous heart.
You suddenly want to render help to others. This is not because you have all the wealth in the world. Rather, it’s because you trust God as your ultimate source and provider. The Bible says when you give, it comes back to you in good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.
When God Begins to Establish Your Plans.
When the Lord is about to bless you, He establishes your plans and causes you to prosper in all things. For instance, if you plan to set up a business, you know God is about to bless you when your plans fall into place. This includes having the resources and means to begin.
Additionally, your little efforts begin to produce dumbfounding results when God wants to bless you.
You Become a Reference Point of God’s Goodness.
When God is about to bless you, your life becomes a reference point of God’s goodness. You also become a testimony and source of encouragement to others. As long as your life encourages others, God is bound to bless you so you can continue being a blessing to others.
In a nutshell, you know God is about to bless you when your life begins to bring Him glory and honor.
When There is a Prophetic Declaration.
The Bible in Isaiah 55:11 says – God’s word will accomplish the purpose for which it was sent. So, God’s word coming to you through a prophecy can be a sign that you are about to be blessed. This prophecy can be in the form of a prophetic declaration, God’s promise resonating in your heart, or divine revelation.
Whichever means it comes; God will watch over His Word to fulfill it in your life. So, if you have received a prophetic word of blessing, you should expect its fulfillment. God is not a man that lies; if He has said it, He will do it.
When Destiny Helpers Show Up.
One of the signs that God is about to bless you is when He begins to send people your way to help you. He gives us the gift of men to help us with what He has commanded them to do for us. If God sends you a divine helper, it is always for a purpose, and blessing is never far from it.
When You Begin to Experience the Miraculous.
When God is about to bless you, He goes out of His way to perform creative miracles in your life that will usher in His blessings. You know that the hand of the Lord is upon you for a mighty blessing when you begin to experience the miraculous.
When the sun turns dark and gloomy, we know it’s about to rain. If you can predict the weather by looking at the sky, you can also predict your season of blessing. All you need do is look out for some of these signs God is about to bless you.
God is not a man that lies; if He has promised to bless you, He will certainly fulfill His promise. The Bible says His words will not return to Him unless they accomplish the purpose for which they were sent.
Since His promises are always true, it’s your responsibility to know the time of fulfillment, so you can position yourself to be blessed.
