Unexpected blessings are not always easy to come by, especially when we have just been going through a very tough time. One of the best things that can be said about God is that he is always ready and able to show his love for his creations. Today, let us take a look at different unexpected ways God has blessed us in the bible.
Unexpected blessings are a powerful encouragement to never give up hope. I’ve compiled over 30 Bible quotes from the Old and New Testament that speak about unexpected blessings. Each verse paints a picture of God’s character, in allowing our own to be taken and replaced with something better, something unexpected.
When we rely on our own strength to keep us going, we’re at the perfect level of weakness. This is something that I personally struggle with. God recently reminded me though, I’m not alone in the struggle.
Bible Verses About Unexpected Blessings
Life itself is full of unexpected blessings. It could be a new job, healing of a disease, or being blessed with a new baby. We must be open to God’s blessings because He has so many good things in store for us! Unfortunately, when we’re going through hard times, it can feel like we’ll never experience these blessings again. However, the Bible tells us that God wants us to have spiritual and physical blessings in our lives. He loves us and wants what’s best for us! If you’re struggling to see His goodness right now, here are some encouraging verses about unexpected blessings that will bring you peace and joy whenever you need it most:
Scripture has a lot to say about the blessings of God, and how He wants us to experience His goodness.
We can be sure that the blessings of God are meant for our good and His glory. We should expect them, but not take them for granted. The Bible says that when you have a lot of the things you want, it’s easy to forget about God and focus on yourself. But God reminds us that He is the one who gives us what we need (Romans 12:1-2).
When we obey his commands, he promises to bless us with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:3). These blessings are given freely by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9), and they’re not based on how much good works we do or how much money we have saved up—they’re a gift from God!
Here are some examples of unexpected blessings from Scripture:
We all need encouragement in our daily lives, and the Word of God is the perfect source of hope and inspiration.

Here are some bible verses about unexpected blessings that will bring you peace and joy when you need it most.
Here are 10 bible verses about unexpected blessings that will bring you peace and joy when you need it most.
- Proverbs 10:22 tells us that “the blessing of the LORD brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.”
- Proverbs 15:6 says, “In the house of the righteous there is much treasure, but in the revenues of the wicked there is trouble.” This verse teaches us that when we trust God with our finances and give tithes and offerings as commanded by Him, He will bless us with what we need. He always provides for His children!
- Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” When we commit ourselves to serving God, He will provide for our needs (Matthew 6:25). By trusting that everything happens for a reason (Romans 8:28), we can rest assured that no matter what comes our way or who might disappoint us along life’s journey–God has got our back!
1. “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.” Romans 8:28 (NLT)
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.” Romans 8:28 (NLT)
God is the author of good things. He’s sovereign over everything. And He also works all things together for our good. So…when you’re waiting on something amazing to happen in your life, it’s not a matter of if—it’s only a matter of when!
2. “Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)
In this verse, Paul was a prisoner in Rome and he was having a hard time continuing his ministry. He didn’t have access to the people he usually did and felt disconnected from them. But he knew the Lord was with him through it all. In his suffering and loneliness, Paul wrote these words of encouragement for us today: “Now all glory to God…”.
3. “But the Lord said to Samuel, Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 (NKJV)
“But the Lord said to Samuel, Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 (NKJV)
You must never judge someone by their appearance or physical characteristics. This is a dangerous practice that can lead us astray from God’s will. The Bible says that God looks on the heart of man and knows what’s in there, so you can rest assured that He will take care of His own business and give you good things if you only trust Him to do so.
4. “Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.” Hebrews 13:15 (ESV)
The Bible is full of reminders that God’s blessings are often unexpected. He has a plan for each one of us, and if we just trust in Him and keep our eyes on Him, we will find that His way is always best. This next verse is a beautiful reminder to give thanks for the blessings we receive from God every day:
Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Hebrews 13:15 (ESV)
Let’s pray together as we end this devotional today by thanking God for His blessings!

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Bible Verses To Bless Someone
In life, we have all been subject to people saying unkind words to us. Sometimes these words land on us as a heavy dark cloud and leave us feeling less than what we are.
Hopefully, we have also received uplifting, life- giving words that lift our spirits, change our outlook or even change our thinking.
Scripture itself teaches us that words either give life or death. Words either encourage or discourage, build up or tear down.
Proverbs 11:25 tells us “Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.”
Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
So, if you are tired as I am of hearing negative things, I have decided to search the Bible for words of blessing.
I want to start praying those blessings over my wife. Then I want to reach out to my children and give them words of blessing and in turn to bless their children. Then, as I go about my day, I want to look for others to give an encouraging word.
Here are 4 scriptures that I have found to start my blessings collection that I wanted to share.
May the Lord Bless You
and protect you,
May the Lord smile on you
and be gracious to you,
May the Lord show you His favor
and give you peace.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Zion!
May he remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices!
May he grant you your heart’s desire
and fulfill all your plans!
May we shout for joy over your salvation
and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!
Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
I would encourage you to take these verses and change the words to fit current day, for instance instead of sacrifices or burnt offerings, use how that person has served, given offerings or helped someone in some way. Also, to insert their name as you pray over them.
If you do this just one-time or on a regular basis, watch and see if that person isn’t blessed and encouraged. And, watch how you are blessed. Remember, “when you water, you too will be watered.”
Be a Blessing To Others!
