(Philippians 4:13 Amp.)

The following commentary was taken from The Revival Study Bible:

George Muller

A Man of Prayer, Faith, and Trust

Among the greatest monuments of what God accomplished through Muller’s simple faith are the great orphanages covering thirteen acres of ground on Ashley Downs, Bristol, England. As a youth, Muller had seen the great orphanage at Halle, in Prussia, supported by Professor August Hermann Fracke in answer to the simple prayer of faith. After going to Bristol, Muller felt that the Lord was laying it upon his heart to begin a similar work in that city as a monument and testimony to the world to show that the Lord still hears and answers prayer.

When God put it into the heart of George Muller to build these orphanages, Muller had only two shillings in his pocket. Without making his wants known to any man, but to God alone, over a million, four hundred thousand pounds were sent to him for the building and maintaining of these orphan homes. The more his faith was exercised, the stronger it became. Funds for one immense building after another were sent in answer to prayer. Eventually, there were five immense buildings of solid granite, capable of accommodating two thousand orphans.

In all the years since the first orphans arrived, the Lord had sent food in due time, so that they had never missed a meal. Muller said that if they ever had to go without a meal, he would take it as evidence that the Lord did not will the work to continue. Sometimes the mealtime was almost at hand and they did not know where the food would come from, but the Lord always sent it in due time during the more than twenty thousand days that Muller had charge of the homes.

At the age of seventy, George Muller began to make great evangelistic tours. He traveled two hundred thousand miles, going around the world and preaching in many lands and in several different languages. He frequently spoke to as many as forty-five hundred or five thousand persons. Three times, he preached throughout the length and breadth of the United States. He continued his missionary or evangelistic tours until he was ninety years of age. He estimated that during these seventeen years of evangelistic work he addressed three million people. All his expenses were sent in answer to the prayer of faith.

Calling for those things You have said to come forth
Letting those things go that are not of You, Lord
Father, we seek Your will and Your plans in these days and hours that we are living in
Taking no care or anxiety about today, for we know You are watching over us
We will not stop but will continue to contend and pray
Moving those roadblocks out of the way, in Jesus’ name!
Pleading the blood of Jesus over our families, homes, and businesses
Declaring that every member of the body of Christ would rise up and take their place
Opening up our hearts to the move of the Holy Spirit
More, more, more!
Pressing through and pushing out those boundaries further than we have ever been before
We ask You for clarity, revelation, and understanding, Father
Restoration in a new way; nothing missing, and nothing broken
Those things that were meant for evil, You will turn it to our good
Praying for the equipment and resources to be right on time and in time
We adore You, Lord!
Declaring that the right words would be spoken
There will be an eternal lifting for the body of Christ to do what it needs to do
Not backing off but calling for a furtherance, Father
Contending and expecting doors to be opened
Alignment—whole families joined back together
We will not fall behind, and there will be no lack!
Mantels, come forth and fulfill Your plan!
Praying that the elements would be lined up in Jesus’ name!
Father, we will continue to draw and lean on You
Lifting up all the keys; keys to codes and keys to plots and plans
Cooperation and collaboration in Your Spirit
Ears to hear and eyes to see clearly
Seeking and waiting on You, Lord
By and through the blood, it will continue to move in the right way
We thank You for boldness and courage for each and every step
That key, that door, that opening, and yes, that way!
By the blood we know, by the blood we go!
Supernatural advancement and acceleration
We must precede there now, Father
A joining together—one purpose and one plan
Eyes fixed and focused on You
Thank You, Lord, for the precious blood of Jesus
Applying the blood of Jesus over the vision that has been set before us
There is a reaching and a rearranging by the precious blood of Jesus
We are stable and fixed under the shadow of the almighty
Thank You, Father, that we are where we need to be today
Calling forth the words that will bring change and restoration
To God be the glory!
