George Müller’s Thoughts On Meditation

Oct 21, 2023

‘I will delight myself in Your commandments.’Psalm 119:47 NKJV

George Müller was a man of great faith. He rescued thousands of homeless children in England. Sometimes when they gathered at the table for supper there was nothing to eat, so he would pray and thank God for supernatural provision. No sooner had he said, ‘Amen’, than a baker would show up at his door with bread, or a greengrocer with vegetables, or a farmer with milk. Here is an entry from his journal, dated 9 May, 1841: ‘I saw more clearly than ever that the first great primary business to which I ought to attend every day was… not how much I might serve the Lord… but… how my inner man might be nourished. For I might seek to set the truth before the unconverted, I might seek to benefit believers… and yet, not being happy in the Lord, and not being nourished and strengthened in my inner man day by day, all this might not be attended to in a right spirit. Before this time my practice had been… to give myself to prayer after having dressed myself in the morning. Now, I saw that the most important thing I had to do was to give myself to the reading of the Word of God, and to meditation on it, that thus my heart might be comforted, encouraged, warned, reproved, instructed; and that this, by means of the Word of God, whilst meditating on it, my heart might be brought into experimental communion with the Lord.’

For over 40 years, Müller walked in the power of God and saw miracles. What was his secret? Taking time each day to meditate in God’s Word.
