How To Unleash Blessings From God: 5 Supernatural Examples

In this article, I explore the concept of God as a Multiplier and highlight ways to embrace and witness the transformative power of this divine attribute in your life. There’s a principle we need to follow in order to activate and unleash blessings from God.

The fundamental principle essential for harnessing this divine essence of God is as follows: “When you offer something to God, He returns it to you manifold.” This principle in encapsulated in the following verse: “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full – pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you give back” (Luke 6:38).

To activate this blessings from God, it is essential to present a sacrifice to God – this is an act of giving or relinquishing a possession or valuable item as an offering. The following are five biblical instances that exemplify the application of this principle.

Blessings from God

1. The Fall of Jericho

The biblical account in Joshua describes how the children of Israel, following God’s command, encircled the city of Jericho six times. On the seventh rotation, they were instructed to shout loudly, resulting in the collapse of the city’s walls. Their obedience to God’s instruction triggered a divine intervention. The collective voice of the multitude was amplified by God’s own voice, which resonated with such force that it caused the fortified walls to crumble. This event underscores the awe-inspiring majesty and power of God’s voice, if mountains skip like a calf to God’s voice, the man-made walls had to yield and crumble before the voice of God (Psalm 29:4).

2. Elijah and the Poor Widow

In a biblical account found in 1 Kings 17:8-16, the prophet of God Elijah encountered a poor widow. When he requested water and bread from her, she expressed her dire situation, having only a small amount of flour and oil left to prepare a final meal for herself and her son. Despite the scarcity, she selflessly prepared the meal for Elijah, demonstrating profound faith. In a remarkable turn of events, her act of generosity was met with a miraculous provision of oil and flour that sustained her and her son for several days

3. Abraham and Isaac

Abraham received instruction from God to offer his only and beloved son, Isaac, as a sacrifice. Demonstrating unwavering faith, Abraham obediently prepared his son for sacrifice on the altar. In a pivotal moment, as Abraham poised to carry out the act, the angel of the Lord intervened, calling out, “Abraham, Abraham! Do not lay a hand on the boy.”

This test not only showcased Abraham’s devotion but also led to a supernatural promise of abundance: “I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore.” Through his act of sacrifice, Abraham transitioned from being the father of one to becoming the patriarch of countless descendants, a testament to his profound faith and obedience to God.

4. Solomon asks for Wisdom

In the account of Solomon’s ascension to the throne of Israel in 1 Kings 3:4, it is recounted that “The king went to Gibeon to offer sacrifices, for that was the most important high place, and Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings on that alter”. Subsequently, God invited him to request anything he desired. Opting for wisdom, Solomon’s choice pleased God, who not only granted him wisdom but also bestowed upon him unrequested blessings of wealth and honor. This narrative underscores the pivotal role of sacrifice that led God to grant him divine favor and abundant blessings.

5. Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

The event in which Jesus fed a multitude stands as a profound display of divine power in multiplication. Initially presented with only 2 fish and 5 loaves, Jesus miraculously satisfied the hunger of 5000 individuals, with leftovers remaining that filled 12 baskets, as recounted in Matthew 14:13-21.
