Daily Bread

Enjoying reading George Mueller, the faithful man who built Orphanages in Bristol, England, and learned to trust God for their daily needs.

God has His own mathematics.  Our funds are deposited in a bank which cannot break.

November, 1839, when the needs again were great and the supplies small -  I was not looking to the little in hand but at the fullness of God.

When the poverty of their resources seemed most pinching, Mr. Mueller comforted himself with the daily proof that God had not forgotten and would day by day feed them.  Often he said to himself, Man’s necessity is God’s opportunity.

He wanted to be a testimony to the faithfulness of God, to induce the reader to venture wholly upon God.  The supreme object of the institutions, founded in Bristol, was to prove God’s faithfulness and the perfect safety of trusting solely to His promises.
