During his life George Müller, of Bristol England received more than 1,000,000 pounds from the Lord without advertising or soliciting…every penny came as an answer to prayer. This story is told by the captain of a ship on which Mr. Müller was traveling.
“I had been on the bridge for 24 hours and never left it, when Müller came to me and said, ‘Captain, I have to be in Quebec on Saturday afternoon.’ ‘It is impossible,’ I said. ‘Then, very well, if your ship cannot take me, God will find some other way. I have never broken an engagement in fifty years; let us go down into the chart room and pray.’
“I looked at the man of God and thought to myself, ‘What lunatic asylum can that man have come from, for I have never heard of such a thing as this?’ ‘Mr Müller,’ I said, ‘do you know how dense the fog is?’”
Tomorrow we will see that Mr. Müller knew the truth of the verse, “He that regardeth the clouds shall not reap” (Ecclesiastes 11:4).
