In the 1800’s George Müller was a thief, liar, and gambler—until God touched his heart. A changed man, Müller began preaching, and then felt the call to help poor children.
He recorded in his personal journal how he desired to show God’s faithful provision. “It is true that the faith which I am able to exercise is God’s own gift. He alone supports it, and He alone can increase it. Moment by moment, I depend on Him.”
Every page reveals God’s daily, consistent, provision for each need—clothing, food, and shelter. Not once, did Müller tell anyone the needs for himself or his ministry—except God. And God met each and every need in awesome and abundant ways. Many times grace was said over empty plates, only to have food delivered before the prayer was finished.
He believed completely in Philippians 4:19 that God would meet every need. Year after year, day after day, moment by moment, George Müller took every need to his heavenly Father.
And in George Müller’s lifetime, he established 117 schools which educated over 120,000 children and through his orphanages he cared for 18,000 orphans. Eighty-two missionaries were supported, 4,000 Bibles were distributed, and over 1 million tracts and portions of scriptures.
George Müller lived and walked his faith. Oh, that we would do the same!
Heavenly Father, help me to walk believing and trusting in You!
“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” ~ Philippians 4:19 (NASB)
