It matters to Him about you!

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.

The story is told...

It was time for breakfast at of one of his group homes and there was no food. Not only was there no food in the kitchen, but there was no money in the home's account. A young girl whose father was a close friend of the owner was visiting the home. The owner took her hand and said, Come and see what our Father will do. In the dining room, long tables were set with empty plates and empty mugs. They sat down at the table with the others and and he prayed, "Dear Father, we thank Thee for what Thou art going to give us to eat."

At once, he heard a knock at the door. There stood the local baker. He told the owner that he couldn't sleep last night. Somehow, he felt they had no bread for breakfast, so he got up at 2 o'clock am and baked some fresh bread. Here it is. The owner thanked him and gave praise to God.

Soon afterward, a second knock came. It was the grocery delivery driver. His vehicle had broken down in front of the group home. There was no way to move and repair it except to empty it of the grocery he needed to still deliver so he asked the owner if they could use the groceries. They had a wonderful breakfast that morning!

Faith was the pinnacle of George Muller's life. Without a personal salary, he relied only on God to supply the money and food he needed to support the hundreds of homeless children he befriended in the name of Jesus Christ. A man of shoe-leather faith, he kept a motto on his desk for many years that brought comfort, strength, and uplifting confidence to his heart. It read, 'It matters to Him about you.'

Mueller believed that those words captured the meaning of 1 Peter 5:7, and he rested his claim for divine help on that truth. He testified at the end of his life that the Lord had never failed to supply all his needs.

Remember, no matter where you are today, in the Challenges of your faith.... that God is concerned with your every need! Cast your cares upon Him today. He has never ever, ever, ever let me down.
