George Müller: a man of faith

21 October 2022 ‘I will delight myself in thy commandments.’ Psalm 119:47 KJV

George Müller was a man of great faith who rescued thousands of homeless children in England. Sometimes there was nothing to eat when they gathered around the table for supper, so he would pray and thank God for supernatural provision. No sooner had he said, ‘Amen’, than a baker would show up at his door with bread, or a greengrocer with vegetables, or a farmer with milk. Here’s an entry from his journal, dated May 9, 1841: ‘I saw more clearly than ever that the first great primary business to which I ought to attend every day was…not how much I might serve the Lord…but…how my inner man might be nourished. For I might seek to set the truth before the unconverted, I might seek to benefit believers…and yet, not being happy in the Lord, and not being nourished and strengthened in my inner man day by day, all this might not be attended to in a right spirit. Before this time my practice had been…to give myself to prayer after having dressed myself in the morning. Now, I saw that the most important thing I had to do was to give myself to the reading of the Word of God, and to meditation on it, that thus my heart might be comforted, encouraged, warned, reproved, instructed; and that this, by means of the Word of God, whilst meditating on it, my heart might be brought into experimental communion with the Lord.’ For over forty years, George Müller walked in the power of God and saw miracles, because he took time each day to meditate in God’s Word. Let’s follow his example and make God and His Word the centre of each day.
