The Autobiography of George Muller

One of the books that I am currently reading is the Autobiography of George Muller. He lived in England in the early 1800’s. The book is a collection of excerpts from his personal journal over a period of years. He was highly involved in helping orphans and the poor during his lifetime, helping children obtain a biblical education, distribution of the Bible, and educating adults as well.  He lived his life based on faith that God would provide for every need to do what must be done. His journal is filled with examples of God proving himself faithful in the hour of need. It was God’s responsibility to feed the orphans because he is the “Father to the Fatherless” so Muller expected God to provide the money, food, etc. to take care of the orphans. He would not let people know about the needs there were, but only approached God with them in prayer. Time and again God prompted people to meet those needs without ever knowing what they were. Muller believed this was the way in which God would receive the most glory because people were not giving in response to a need but in response to the direction of the Holy Spirit. Muller lived debt-free and gave away every penny he had yet he always had enough. This book is both deeply challenging and encouraging. It will feed a fire within your soul to trust God in his work, challenge you to align your habits and patterns of life with his will, and drive you to your knees in prayer.  It has been especially encouraging to me in this hour of my life and ministry.

If you want to read it, you can borrow my copy, just email me.
