“My wife and I had the grace to take the Lord’s commandment in Luke 12:33 literally, ‘Sell that ye have, and give alms.’ We never regretted taking that step. God blessed us abundantly as He taught us to trust Him alone. When we were down to our last few shillings, we told Him about our needs and depended on Him to provide. He never failed us.” George Muller the Autobiography
How much is removed from faith by doubt?
Where would one be if second guessing were absent?
When will the day be which sees trust walked out into the amazing hands of God?
George Muller lived in Bristol, England and felt God wanted him to be the example of what God would do through a man who trusted Him for everything, including his daily needs yet not so small to exclude world missions.
His story is almost too incredibly wonderful.
Yet it is also a challenge.
Where are those who are willing to leave behind worries, fears, doubts to trust in ways which can seem crazy?
Should we jump off a three story building to prove God has the power to catch?
Should we give away our wallets, jobs, and insurance to live under a bridge trusting God to “give it all back”?
What is God asking us to do?
Not run out doing the foolish or eye catching.
Not to draw attention to ourselves or give our ego a plumping up by an amazing sacrifice.
To know Him.
To trust Him.
To walk with Him daily.
To listen for His nudge.
What words if you heard them spoken tomorrow would immediately cause fear and or panic?
Trust Him for that.
Because it is in the areas we hold dear or off limits which are the ones lacking trust in God and His Sovereign design.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. ”
Proverbs 3 : 5-6
