I was reading from the life of George Muller this week and I was inspired by something he said regarding his dying wife.
“The last portion of Scripture which I read to my precious wife was this: “The Lord God is the sun and child, the Lord will give grace and glory, no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Now, if we have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, we have received grace, we are partakers of grace, and to all such he will give glory also. I said to myself, with regard to the later part, “no good thing will be withheld from them that walk uprightly” I am in myself a poor worthless sinner, but I have been saved by the blood of Christ and I do not live in sin, I walk uprightly before God. Therefore, if it is really good for me, my darling wife will be raised up again; sick as she is. God will restore her again. But if she is not restored again, then it would not be a good thing for me. And so my heart was at rest. I was satisfied with God. And all this springs, as I have said before, from taking God at His word, believing what He says.” Muller took God at His word. He believed in the scripture that He read. In his trouble, he turned
to the Word of God and found his answers. When I looked at this statement from him, I couldn’t help but highlight some of the truths he learned from taking God at His Word. He believed he was a poor and worthless sinner. He believed he was saved by the blood of Jesus. He believed that God would do not what they wanted, but what was good for himself and his wife. He held onto the sovereignty of God and his heart was at rest. The key to his happiness was his satisfaction in God and knowing that sovereign God is good so he could trust Him no matter what the outcome was. Rest in that same truth and let God’s word transform you.
