The God-pleasers

George Müller…

has always been an inspiration to my faith walk. The French translation of his classic biography is a staple in my devotional library! Although I do not agree with some of his doctrinal beliefs, his position of faith, which he gleaned from Germany’s Franck, continues to be a shining example. Who can’t help but be inspired by a man who received millions and fed thousands of orphans by making his needs known to God alone!

Heb. 11:6 Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him.

Like Müller, God has been faithful to supply our many needs without our looking to other sources. Though, of course, He uses man, we cannot trust in the arms of flesh.

2 Chr. 32:8 with him is an arm of flesh; but with us is Yahweh our God to help us, and to fight our battles. The people rested themselves on the words of Hezekiah king of Judah. (WEB)

God chooses to meet our needs in His own way! That’s what is meant by “sovereign,” not that we must ENDURE what He throws at us.

How often this is humbling for our independent, self-sufficient bent! Look at the magnificent way God has worked healing in my body and supplied for every need: treatment, living situation, etc…

Not long ago, I approached a brother inquiring about the rehabilitative exercises he was given to do after surgery. I was astounded by his response! Recommending an orthopedic doctor, he had me on the operating table for a hip replacement in two shakes of a lamb’s tail…

2 Chr. 16:12 In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa was diseased in his feet; his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he didn’t seek Yahweh, but to the physicians. (WEB)

The key is to flow with His will which is divinely BEST, working out the optimum benefit for us, His children.
