Today we are featuring on one the most popular in our series, George Müller by Roger Steer:
About George Müller: Delighted in God
George Müller’s life is a powerful answer to modern scepticism.
His name has become a by-word for faith throughout the world. In the early 1830s he embarked upon an extraordinary adventure. Disturbed by the faithlessness of the church in general, he longed to have something to point to as ‘visible proof that our God and Father is the same faithful Creator, as he ever was’.
Praying for every penny of the costs, he supervised the building of five large orphanages, housing thousands of children. Under no circumstances would any individual ever be asked for money or materials. He was more successful than anyone could have believed possible and is as much an example to our generation as he was to his.
