!Download Book ♐ George Mueller: Delighted in God ☸ Here is the definitive life story of the man who lived by prayer and faith alone, housing and feeding thousands of homeless children in England, advertising his financial needs to no one but God This book was poorly written It was hard to be captured by the story at the beginning Because I had no prior knowledge of Muller s story and read this book only because it was referenced by someone I highly respect, it would have been easy to give up on it very quickly Fortunately, I did not do that Muller s story is incredible Beyond belief, really In a time when thoughts and prayers are daily mocked, Muller s life is the strongest apologetic to the power of prayer that I have ever read This book was poorly written It was hard to be captured by

very quickly Fortunately, I did not do that Muller s story is incredible Beyond belief, really In a time when thoughts and prayers are daily mocked, Muller s life is the strongest apologetic to the power of prayer that I have ever read Even if you don t read this book, learning his story is a must for anyone who wants to understand what a life dependent on God for every need really looks like The great fault of the children of God is, they do not continue in prayer they do not go on praying they do not persevere If they desire anything for God s glory, they should pray until they get it Oh, how good, and kind, and graciousis the One with Whom we have to do pg 224 Quite naturally, having grown up in the church, M ller was commonly referred to in sermons The examples of God s provision

grown up in the church, M ller was commonly referred to in sermons The examples of God s provision were always deeply moving As such, contemplating his life through Roger Steer s careful account only brought to life even further these episodes of God s provision and the remarkable life of faith that M ller exemplified Taking the life of M ller as a whole, I couldn t help but feel severely, and rightly, challenged Any and every account of the day to day dealings of movements in Bristol and beyond stir one s heart for God, to attempt and do wonderful things for his name Simultaneously I was made to think of how little I move into the realm of tangibly trusting God with my daily provisions, how concerned I am that I have resources and securities behind my name in case any thing should go wrong However, it s not just the financial provision as much as it is also the concrete manner in which M ller s life displayed a life of prayer and devotion with Christ Hearing how he spoke of God s nearness, the surety that M ller felt in God hearing his prayers, the trust he manifested year after year these are qualities and examples that evoked envy in my heart, these are matters and experiences that I wish I could speak of Which of course raises the question as to why there is a world of difference between M ller s experience and my own No doubt, my lack of prayer, my lack of meaningful time in the Word, my infatuation with the things of this world are stumbling blocks to the kind of life M ller lived This was a deeply humbling read And I am thankful for it I pray that this life would move me to action, that my prayers would be enlarged, that my faith would be encouraged, that Christ would be further exalted in and through my life One final thought, though, is the question of the prescriptive nature of M llers life I must say that I was puzzled again and again as to how one should respond to M ller s life Of course, I do not doubt God s hand in providing just as much as he needed But some of M ller s approaches and practices seemed to go against even some common sense and biblical examples even the Apostle Paul asked for money I was also concerned about some of M ller s approach to ministry, lingering only as long as he felt called to a certain place at least earlier on in his ministry Perhaps my full thoughts on this cannot be developed here but certainly some of what happened didn t sit so comfortably with me Steer s biography was a breeze to read, slightly jump y at times but really easy to take in and progress One thing I would like to readabout was M ller s conversion Steer was brief and ambiguous Another study I d love to enquire into is the epistemology of M ller and the ministers during this time period I heard a lot of emphasis on feeling and sensing the will of God , almost to the detriment of clear biblical commands of faithfulness at least in my mind There s certainly been some development backwards or forwards I am not sure in how Christians discern the will of God and act on it since the 1800 s compared with today If you know of any studies looking into this let me know Today I finished the book George Mueller Delighted in God In the midst of seminary reading this book has been such a sweet refresher as it is such a devotional read This is my first time reading a Christian biography and I really appreciated

together what Mueller s life was It was by no means a boring timeline to read Throughout my time reading this book, I have constantly been struck with how steadfast of a man Mueller was I know that I can be so quick to stop praying instead of praying continuously, and never ceasing in prayer It seems that very quickly from the outset of his conversion, Mueller was a changed man He was wholly committed to Christ because of what he had done for him This book made me ask myself, in what ways am I not wholly committed to Christ What parts of my life are not yielded to him It was also incredible to see the difference in my prayer life with Mueller s As I went about my day after reading this book I would often be struck with the questions of, Why is it that I don t pray for fill in the blank on a regular basis I was all theawaked to the realization that to pray in our culture is laborious because of the ease of self reliance The reason we don t pray is because we don t see our need for God Even while working in ministry I have realized it is so easy for me to single out some activities leading a bible study, talking to students, etc as easy and some as needing prayer, giving a message, sharing the gospel , when in reality all things require the holy work of God or else it is vanity I was also struck by Mueller s devotedness to serving God at all times It seemed as though that there were no times where he was not, on In our culture now we so often feel entitled to our comfort and to get away from work But for Mueller, it was obvious that his work was not only necessary in glorifying God but it was his great joy He was never burdened by prayer, but always taking to God his burdens in prayer It was obvious that Muller truly believed God existed and was personal It is my prayer that I would not deny myself opportunities to trust Godin taking steps of faith I pray that my delight would be like Mueller s, to be so virtually overwhelmed with the goodness of God in trusting him that he was so beyond contentment I shall now be for ever and ever be a happy man, and I will remain in the presence of my Father I will not leave His House any , because I found it so very, very precious to be a child of God I find this a difficult review to write George M ller was such an incredible man with an astounding testimony, and I really enjoyed reading of the many answers to prayer, and how he approached his ministry On the down side, these provisions were so regular that the story felt a little cyclical I also felt that the story was told with thick rose coloured glasses I have no doubt that M ller was a great man of faith, but any struggles he had seemed to be glossed over Perhaps the best way to de I find this a difficult review to

life of true Christian value and authentic practice, this biography should be the one of the firsts on your list This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is a fun and easy book to read at night This is a nonfiction biography based on the prayer warrior George Muller, who inspired many in the nineteenth century and continues to encourage others today This book has influenced my prayer life tremendously teaching me to have faith in God that He will answer my prayers Minor Spoiler Alert Muller journaled frequently and one fascinating truth he recorded was that God answered 50,000 of his prayers 30,000 were answered within twenty four hours This read was definitely one of the most faith building, comforting, and challenging books to read in the vein of trusting God moment by moment to provide This account of Mueller s single minded trust in God to provide not only for his own life, but the lives of over 10,000 orphans, is a true testimony to His active presence even today Also, I love British literature so I enjoyed traveling back in time to 19th century England to experience this book. I would have rated this book 1.5 stars if I could have, but certainly not because of George Mueller s incredible, exciting, and amazing life That would rate 5 stars Rather, this rating is for Roger Steer s book, which takes this man s unbelievable life story and makes a dry, boring textbook of it, devoid of any emotion or joy If you re writing a term paper for a professor who is a stickler for facts, especially lots and lots of date facts, this book will help you out with that If, however I would have rated this book 1.5 stars if I could have, but certainly not because of George Mueller s incredible, exciting, and amazing life That would rate 5 stars Rather, this rating is for Roger Steer s book, which takes this man s unbelievable life story and makes a dry, boring textbook of it, devoid of any emotion or joy If you re writing a term paper for a professor who is a stickler for facts, especially lots and lots of date facts, this book will help you out with that If, however, you re looking for a biography that reads like a good story, keep on looking This one put me to sleep many a night I read this book in college and remembered some of the amazing stories related to Miller s prayer life, so I thought it would be a good book to read to my children No This book is poorly written and a chore to read aloud I made it about 1 4 of the way through, and I ve decided to give up My kids would getbenefit out of me just reading his wiki page.
