Faith in Christ means we are called to walk by faith and not by sight. Most of my adult life God has been training me and equipping myself, my husband and our children, to trust God as our Source for everything. To live by Faith...our daily bread kind of stuff. This journey has been difficult, stretching and completely awesome and amazing. To witness the miraculous move of God in your life is something no Christian should be denied. The more we step out in faith-all Christians-the more we meet the face of God. It is brilliant and I can't wait to get even deeper glimpses of Him.
On this journey a testimony that has inspired me over and over is the life story of George Mueller. I highly recommend you read his story. This amazing man did everything by faith and built extraordinary orphanages and raised countless children by vehicle of the provision of persevering and fervent prayers. He is considered one of the greatest prayers of all time! Here's just one story:
"The children are dressed and ready for school. But there is no food for them to eat," the housemother of the orphanage informed George Mueller. George asked her to take the 300 children into the dining room and have them sit at the tables. He thanked God for the food and waited. George knew God would provide food for the children as he always did. Within minutes, a baker knocked on the door. "Mr. Mueller," he said, "last night I could not sleep. Somehow I knew that you would need bread this morning. I got up and baked three batches for you. I will bring it in."
Soon, there was another knock at the door. It was the milkman. His cart had broken down in front of the orphanage. The milk would spoil by the time the wheel was fixed. He asked George if he could use some free milk. George smiled as the milkman brought in ten large cans of milk. It was just enough for the 300 thirsty children." (Work sited Christisnity.com)
When you don't know what God will do, how and when? Is there even enough time for Him to begin? Remember George Muller and remind God again. Seat yourself at His table, tuck in your napkin and let the miracle feast begin!
If he did it for him-he can do it for you. ~Nicole
