101 Devotionals for Boys from the Lives of Great Christians and 101 Devotionals for Girls from the Lives of Great Christians will both be published in 2017. We’re publishing one or two devotionals a week to give you a taste of what you’ll get in those two gift books. This one is based on a story from George Mueller: Pickpocket to Praying Provider (Potter’s Wheel series #3).
William Ready came from the streets of England to George Mueller’s orphanage. When it was time for him to graduate and go on to be an apprentice with a Christian businessman, Mr. Mueller called him into the office. “William, you can hold tighter with your right hand than with your left, can’t you?”
William was puzzled by this strange question. “Yes, sir.”
Mr. Mueller put a Bible in William’s right hand and a coin in his left hand. “Well, my boy,” he said, “hold on tight to the teachings of that Book, and your left hand will always have something to hold.”
What did he mean? Love the leading of the Lord through His Word, keep trusting Him through faith, and He will always provide for you.
William learned who Jesus really was, the Savior of the world, and his own personal Savior. He became an evangelist in Australia to proclaim the Word of God there.
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word.” ~Psalm 119:9
Thank You, Lord, that You lead us through Your holy Word. Help me to keep my way pure by following You.
