Living By Faith – Lessons From George Muller – My God Shall Supply All My Needs

As I travel life'sjourney, I'm in awe of the little ways God speaks to my heart.
Each day, as part of their schoolwork, my children review their AWANA assignments for the next week. One week, my 6 year old daughter was asked to find a book or a picture about a missionary who lived long ago before she was born. 

This was an easy assignment. On our school shelf is a copy of George Muller's biography. For those of you who may not know, George Muller is a man who lived by FAITH and prayer alone. Back in the 1800s, he started up an orphanage with no money and no resources. He depended solely on God to supply all his needs. George Muller read his Bible and prayed everyday, knowing in his heart that whatever they needed, it would be provided.

As I shared this story with my daughter, I was reminded of a song I was taught when I was 12 years old.
It's amazing what sticks in your heart, years later as a constant reminder of God's love.

Jehovah Jireh
 (this is a faster version than I was taught, my own version is more of a Praise & Worship style, slow & meaningful, but you'll get the idea.)

Jehovah Jireh My Provider 
His Grace Is Sufficient For Me, For Me For Me
Jehovah Jireh My Provider
His Grace Is Sufficient For Me

My God Shall Supply All My Needs
According To His Riches and Glory
He'll Give His Angels Charge Over Me
Jehovah Jireh Cares For Me.

So here I was singing this to my little ones at the kitchen table, 
and explaining to them how God supplies all our needs……..
and I couldn't get through it all without tearing up.

How great is our God that we can lay it all down at His feet and know that He will provide all that we need.

Trust The Lord With All Your Heart
And Lean Not On Your Own Understanding
In All Your Ways Acknowledge Him
And He Will Direct Your Paths
Proverbs 3:4-5 (NIV)

Until Later…
