Part of my ‘new year, newer me’ plan is to read some biographies. I began with this one on George Muller by Basil Miller.
Here are two great quotes from the book. I am really enjoying it already.
“After learning the lesson of being busy in the work of the Lord, too busy in fact to pray, he told his brethren that four hours of work after an hour of prayer would accomplish more than five hours without prayer. This rule henceforth he faithfully kept.” (page 49)
Muller was often asked how he was so certain that he was doing the will of God. He replied with a 6 point answer. Here is his 1st point. Very good.
“1. I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter. Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the Lord’s will, whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is.” (page 51)
God has true people of faith of in this world who are making a great impact for Him. I am praying for God to raise up people like that in Fairdale.
