How to Multiply the Kingdom of God

Summary: Be being thankful for what we have, we can then multiply it to advance the kingdom of God!

Recently, I did a post on declaring God’s truths into the atmosphere while at work.

I would ask the Father what was on His heart and then release it into the atmosphere!

It would look something like this, “In Jesus name, I declare and release God’s redemption to Ohio.”

I thought that was pretty cool that I could do that and then God helped me to take it a step further!

The word multiplication began to bubble up inside of me. So I began multiplying what was on the Father’s heart!

Example: Thank you for the redemption you have shown me in my life and in Jesus name, I declare and release God’s redemption in a tenfold fashion over Ohio.”

It didn’t stop there! I thought God wanted more and I went up to 100x God’s redemption over Ohio!

This is following God’s commandment to us to “Be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28).

It really is a simple process and we can use Jesus as our example when he multiplied the fish and bread.

Matthew 14:19 says, Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves.

Notice it was when he gave thanks that when the multiplication occurred. It is about being thankful no matter how small or insignificant something may seem.

Here is an testimony from my own life.

Last year, I was thinking about financial breakthrough and there was a penny on the ground.

I felt the Holy Spirit say pick it up and say thanks! So I did! Next thing I knew I found a dime. It clicked that was a ten fold financial breakthrough! Then it snowballed into larger area amounts.

Later in the year, there was a $15,000 debt I incurred. I went back to the penny moment and applied the principle of giving thanks.

4 and half months later I was debt free with less than $10,000 of income coming in and being laid off from work two weeks after finding out about the debt!

A true miracle. Praise God!

And it started with giving thanks over a penny!

So the next time you have a thought of having a little of something, stop and be thankful!

Only have a little bit of joy in life, Great. Be thankful.

Only have a few friends in life, Awesome. Be thankful.

Only have seen God’s goodness a tiny bit in your life. Sweet! Be thankful.

And then multiply it to those around you and it shall come back to you!

Prayer: Father, thank you for the gift of multiplication that you have shown me. In Jesus name, I declare and release the gift of multiplication to every reader. Holy Spirit, help us be good stewards of this gift to advance the Kingdom of God and to destroy the works of the enemy. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen.

Application and Comments: What has God given in your own life in a small amount? How can you be thankful for it and then multiply it out to your family, neighborhood, city, nation and world? I would love to hear your stories in the comments below!

Angels in the Soccer Field

I was playing 6v6 soccer with friends this past weekend and I was sensing we would need some angels to win the game.

I looked around my team and saw that I was the only one wearing soccer cleats while the other team had 3-4 players that had cleats.

Quick math said there were more “soccer” players on the other team. And I had not played in a while.

Enter the Angels.

I remembered the Angels in the Outfield movie from the mid 1990s and released a prayer of, “In Jesus name, I declare and release angels to our team!”

So the game began, and we were holding our own against the other team!

My first clue of angels being with us was when I had a breakaway on goal and before I shot the ball, I did not rush the shot like I would in the past. I calmly set my feet and placed the ball nicely in the corner of the goal.

The goal made it 1-0.

I became convinced there were angels with us later in the game when the other team had a point blank shot on net.

A quick thought of, “Lie down” came upon me. I listened to it and the ball bounced right off my leg!

Thanks for the tip angel!

The rest of the game was an enjoyable time with friends and am grateful for the experience this weekend.

My takeaway from the game was God really wants us to have fun in life. Too often, I get wound up in thinking about the future.  This was a chance to relax with some amazing friends and some new angel friends!
