Revering Him

“The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. Therefore, men revere him, for does he not have regard for all the wise in heart?” – Job 37:23-24

George Muller was a man who trusted the Lord. He was born in 1805 and he is remembered as both an English evangelist and philanthropist. A man of faith and prayer, he established orphanages in Bristol and founded the Scriptural Knowledge Institution for Home and Abroad.

He was once asked the secret of his service. It was widely known that God had continually met the needs of the orphanage without his making them known. He estimated that Christ answered 50,000 of his prayers. How did he exist like this?

Muller replied: “There was a day when I died, utterly died.” As he spoke, he bent lower and lower until he almost touched the floor, displaying his submission before God. “I died to George Muller, his opinions, his preferences, tastes, and will,” he explained. “I died to the approval or blame even of my brethren and friends. And since then, I have studied only to show myself approved unto God.”

Do you revere the Lord? Today in prayer, ask the Lord to take all of you and to use you for His glory.

“If worship is just one thing we do, everything becomes mundane. If worship is the one thing we do, everything takes on eternal significance.” – Timothy J. Christenson

God’s Word: “Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him.” – Psalm 33:8
