Mark 8:5  “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied. (NIV)

Howdy! I am in the Pacific Northwest for a few days. These morning missives will arrive later than normal. 

A maximized life is impossible outside of a relationship with Jesus. He can always do more and better with greater results than you or I. 

Jesus fed 5,000 people with five loaves and two fish. He fed 4,000 people with seven loaves. There were more leftovers in each case than what they started with. 

Would you like multiplied influence? Would you enjoy amplified impact? Walk with Jesus through life and offer him everything you call your own. 

Moses had a staff. With that tool he could walk more securely on rocky ground. He could protect, defend, and retrieve sheep. God took that same staff and turned into a snake-eating snake. 

What is your best tool? Your best strength? Your best subject? Your best time of day? Your best mood? What do you do better than 10,000 other people? Jesus can always do more and better with greater results.

Take a moment to offer Jesus all you are and all you have. Ask him to multiply your effectiveness today. Ask him to amplify your impact in his kingdom. Ask him to empower you to live a maximized life that helps people see how good God is. This is the kind of prayer God loves to answer.

I will offer Jesus all that I am and all that I have.

Our Father, you are better than me at everything. Here is my life. Take it and use it as you see fit. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
