God Hasn't Changed...He's Still Faithful

A reader of our George Muller blog gives powerful testimony to the fact that God still provides today.

He writes:  

Hi David:

When I said we have no money, I guess it sounded negative in a way. We have been in operation for almost a year.We have NEVER been short on ANY need we have ever had. God has amazingly provided everything. Our van, our car, our website, toiletries, a work-out station. Even the men who come have the skills we need. I have also started a "building fund" in following with George Mueller's methods. We are so very blessed in every way. I am so excited to be a part of Gods kingdom. I read George Mueller's book when I was in a similar program to mine. They however charged a substantial amount of money to be there. We DO NOT charge to be in our program. Several people have come to know Christ through the witness of Gods provision for us. The statement " What happened with George Mueller is not a one time event, it will happen for anyone who trusts as he did". Well, my board of Directors even thinks I am a bit crazy, but now are seeing the power of a mighty God at work. Keep the Scriptures and quotes coming......I NEED IT DAILY.

Love in Jesus...

Powerful Words

Could I truthfully voice the same sentiments that George Muller uttered when the only source of income and provision was God Himself?

Muller stated:
"But God, our infinite rich Treasurer, remains with us. It is this which gives me peace. Moreover if it pleases Him, with a work requiring about $264,000 a year...would I gladly pass through all these trials of faith with regard to means, if He only might be glorified, and His Church and the world benefited...I have placed myself in the position of having no means at all left; and 2,100 persons, not only daily at the table, but with everything else to be provided for, and all the funds gone; 189 missionaries to be assisted, and nothing whatever left; about one hundred schools with 9,000 scholars in them, to be entirely supported, and no means for them in hand; about four million tracts and tens of thousands of copies of the Holy Scriptures yearly now to be sent out, and all the money expended...I commit the whole work to Him, and He will provide me with what I need, in future also, though I know not whence the means are to come."

Muller Book Collection

Recently I took a photo of some of my George Muller book collection to use as the header for this blog.  Some readers have asked which biography of Muller is the best.  I'm not certain but I've enjoyed A. T. Pierson's "George Muller of Bristol" a lot.  I have several editions of this.

I've met Roger Steer, author of book, "George Muller - Delighted in God", and his biography is excellent.

For those who'd like a list of books by and about George Muller I will post my list and my "want" list on this blog.  Stay tuned...

Keep trusting God!

True Trust

The following quote by George Muller was exactly what I needed today. Our trust must be placed in God ALONE. We are so prone to look elsewhere but if we do, we will be disappointed. - David

“Only let it be trust in God, not in man, not in circumstances, not in any of your own exertions, but real trust in God, and you will be helped in your various necessities... Not in circumstances, not in natural prospects, not in former donors, but solely in God. This is just that which brings the blessing. If we say we trust in Him, but in reality do not, then God, taking us at our word, lets us see that we do not really confide in Him; and hence failure arises. On the other hand, if our trust in the Lord is real, help will surely come.”

The Quotable George Muller

Here is a random selection of some of George Muller's quotes:

"What a difference grace makes!"

"Who am I that I should despise my brother?"

"Through faith in Jesus we are now the sons of God."

"Above all things, see to it that pour souls are happy in the Lord."

"Where Faith begins, anxiety ends; Where anxiety begins, Faith ends."

"Love is of God. God is love; and he who loves most is most like God."

"The word of God is our only standard, and the Holy Spirit our only teacher."

"In the Scriptures, by the power of the Holy Ghost, He makes Himself known unto our souls."

"God is the Author of salvation, and this salvation is to be obtained entirely in the way of grace."

"There will be no difference in heaven. There all are of one mind. Let us aim at the heavenly condition."

"To learn strong faith is to endure great trials. I have learned my faith by standing firm amid severe testings."

"Every instance of obedience, from right motives, strengthens us spiritually, whilst every act of disobedience weakens us."

"Then let us remember that we are His stewards. Our time, our health, our strength, our talents, our all, are His, and His alone."
