George Meuller of Bristol
God used George Mueller wonderfully in
an abundance of ministries. Simultaneously he pastored a church of 1,200 members; operated
Sunday schools that taught and evangelized thousands of children; housed, fed clothed,
taught and evangelized 2,050 orphans annually for decades; supported 187 missionaries;
organized the Scriptural Knowledge Institute that distributed vast quantities of Bibles,
Scripture portions, and tracts. Relying solely upon Gods Word, the Holy Spirit, and
prayer he supported all of these works.
At the age of seventy he began a series of missionary speaking tours that took him to
Europe, Asia, North American, and Australia. Mr. Mueller was an educated man able to
preach in English, German and French without the need of an interpreter. He also was well
versed in both Greek and Hebrew. Thousands attended the meetings at which he spoke. In
addition, he received hundreds of invitations that he was unable to accept.
Mr. Mueller never accepted a salary for any of these ministries. Neither did he tell
anyone of his personal need nor any of the ministries needs. He told only God and God
honored and anointed him mightily.
The work continued long after his death (at least until the end of World War II, the last
data I have available) with the same abundance of Gods blessing of the ministries.
Dr. A. T. Pierson (1837-1911), pastor of Fort Road Presbyterian Church in Detroit,
Michigan, knew Mr. Mueller personally and wrote the biography you can read here at BSMI.
In my opinion Dr. Piersons biography of Mr. Mueller is not simply a report of what
happened in Mr. Muellers life. It really shows you the man whom God used. For a
lasting spiritual glow and blessing, read a chapter a day (an average of about 8 pages per
chapter) until you finish the book. Youll be glad you did.
