Insight’s from
Today’s Bible Readings

Bible Reading Inspiration From George Mueller


In his attempt to stress the immense value of not only reading but also pondering and applying the scriptures, George Mueller is quoted to have said the following words:

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. . . . What is the food of the inner man? Not prayer, but the word of God; and . . . not the simple reading of the word of God, so that it only passes through our minds, just as water runs through a pipe, but considering what we read, pondering over it, and applying it to our hearts.

About George Mueller

George Mueller was an avid Bible reader. He read the Bible between five to ten times more than he read any other book and before he died, he had read through the Bible almost 200 times.

In the Book, George Mueller’s Strategy for Showing God, John Piper tells us that George Mueller was also a man of faith who never asked any person for money. However, through prayer alone, he received millions of dollars (in today’s currency) that he used in very many ways in God’s service including supporting missionaries, educating destitute children, and caring for more than 10,000 orphans in his five orphanages in England. George Mueller pastored the same church for more than 68 years and throughout this time, he never took a salary in his ministry but trusted God to put in people’s hearts to send him what he needed. He never took out a loan or went into debt.

Marks of Revival


Israel was mainly an agricultural economy, and the Bible writers who lived in this setting made use of the things that the people were familiar with to illustrate the eternal things of the kingdom. One thing that was important then was the rain that was so necessary for the crops to grow and mature.

Empowering Insights

I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.
— Martin Luther


Reconciliation (1)Call to confession of sin:

For the love of Christ controls us . . . that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.

Prayer of Confession


Assurance of pardon:

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself. . . . For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Prayer Inspiration The Importance of Prayer


How important is prayer to you?  Is there any evidence that shows that prayer is a conscious necessity in your life? Do you take it as an indispensable daily requirement in your life that just can’t be postponed?

Consider the example of Christ’s prayer life:

Prayer to our Lord was more important than preaching, for he taught men to pray, but we have no record that he ever taught them to preach (Matt 6:5-15).

Christ’s earthly ministry began in prayer (Luke 3:31), continued in prayer, and ended in prayer (Luke 23:34).

And if our Lord Jesus Christ prioritized prayer this much, how much more do we need to do so in our own lives, which are so sinful and needy, and filled with fear and danger?


Do you want us to pray for a specific need?
