“Aug. 17, 1883…Think of this, dear reader! Day by day about 2,100 persons are to be provided for in the Orphan Institution…and £10 was all that was in hand to do this. You see we are just in the same position in which we were 46 years since as to funds. God is our banker. In Him we trust, and on Him we draw by faith…God is pleased continually to vary His mode of dealing with us, in order that we may not be tempted to trust in donors, or in circumstances, but in Him alone, and to keep our eye fixed upon Him. This, by His grace, we are enabled to do, and our hearts are kept at peace.”
George Müller (1805-1898) in Answers to Prayer ed. by E.C. Brooks.
