Are you taking God at His word?
Do you believe God?
Do you trust God?
This article is based on the simple faith of a man by the name of George Muller who literally took God at His Word and is known as The Man of Faith to Whom God Gave Millions.
The following is taken from one of his many websites:
George Muller (1805-1898) was an English evangelist who founded orphanages in Bristol. He trusted God for his daily needs to feed the orphans.
“God’s plan is there shall be none of self and all of Christ. The very people who are doing the most for God in saving souls, in mission work, in the care of orphans, are those who are working on short supplies of strength, of money, of talents, of advantages, and are kept in a position of living by faith and taking from God, day by day both physical and spiritual supplies. This is the way God succeeds and gains conquests over His own people, and over the unbelief of those who look on His providences.”
What is Simple Faith?
Simply put, Simple Faith is taking God at His word LITERALLY!
Muller was quoted as saying “If the Lord fails me at this time, it will be the first time.”
George Muller took the following 3 scriptures at face value. He chose to believe God.
Matthew 6:25-26 (NIV)
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Matthew 7:7 (NIV)
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
John 14:13-14 (NIV)
13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
Stop trying to make things happen. I am the One who parted the Red Sea. I am for you not against you. Ask Me and I will give it to you. Seek Me and you will find. Knock and My door will be opened to you. Have Faith. Have Faith. Have Faith.
