“The more I am in a position to be tried in faith with reference to my body, my family, my service to the Lord, my business, etc., the more shall I have the opportunity of seeing God’s help of deliverance; and every fresh instance, in which He helps and delivers me, will tend towards the increase of my faith.”  
– George Muller   

 

Last Wednesday, I attended the Habitation Conference, a convening of worshippers, pastors and leaders in the presence of the LORD in Orlando, FL. The weeks approaching the event were filled with stress. I was weary and looked forward to the times of refreshing that come from the presence of the LORD. (Acts 3:20) Habitation is an immersion experience – for three and a half days, about a thousand people bask an an atmosphere of worship, the Word, prophetic impartation, signs, wonders, healing and deliverance ministry. DELIVERANCE is the action of being rescued or set free; or to provide what is promised or expected. I experienced deliverance throughout the days of the conference as answers, guidance, and direction were dispensed. Relief, peace, and joy overflowed in an atmosphere of God’s love and grace.    

 

 
Deliverance is another word for salvation. I love the image above of someone reaching up for rescue and being met by a strong hand to save. The person to your left doesn’t have the strength to reach for help, but is still rescued, despite the fact that just their cry may have been heard. God hears and answers us. In Psalm 3, an aged king David is in flight because of a coup attempt by his son Absalom. He cries out in his distress,O LORD, how my foes have increased! How many rise up against me! Many say of me, “God will not deliver him.” Selah. But You, O LORD are a shield around me, my glory and the One who lifts my head.” David speaks of the LORD’s faithfulness to sustain him when he can’t save himself, “From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.” (vs. 8, NIV)   

 

 

George Muller, is an English Evangelist who cared for 10,024 orphans during his lifetime: educating them and changing their futures. Muller established 117 schools that taught 120,000 children. He raised the equivalent of $141 million dollars for these ventures. He never made formal requests for financial support, nor did he go into debt. Many times, he received unsolicited food donations only hours before they were needed, further strengthening his faith in God.  George Müller was in constant prayer that God touch the hearts of donors to make provisions for the orphans.In his autobiographical entry for February 12, 1842, he wrote:

“A brother in the Lord came to me this morning and, after a few minutes of conversation gave me two thousand pounds for furnishing the new Orphan House … Now I am able to meet all of the expenses. In all probability I will even have several hundred pounds more than I need. The Lord not only gives as much as is absolutely necessary for his work, but he gives abundantly. This blessing filled me with inexplicable delight. He had given me the full answer to my thousands of prayers during the [past] 1,195 days.”
Müller never sought donations from specific individuals and relied on the Almighty for all of his needs. He trusted God for deliverance in every area of his life and ministry. May we all be boldly encouraged to do the same.
