Daily D – Mark 8:5
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.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
