Biographer Arthur T. Pierson describes the “narrative,” which George Müller had penned down, concerning the ways God worked in his life:

THINGS which are sacred forbid even a careless touch. The record written by George Müller of the Lord’s Dealings reads, especially in parts, almost like an inspired writing, because it is simply the tracing of divine guidance in a human life– not this man’s own working or planning, suffering or serving, but the Lord’s dealings with him and workings through him.

This journal of George Müller contained records of seven different kinds of experiences:

  1. An experience of frequent and at times prolonged financial straits.
  2. An experience of the unchanging faithfulness of the Father-God.
  3. An experience of the working of God upon the minds, hearts, and conscience of contributors to the work.
  4. An experience of the habitual hanging upon the unseen God and nothing else.
  5. An experience of conscientious care in accepting and using gifts.
  6. An experience of extreme caution lest there should be even a careless betrayal of the fact of pressing need, to the outside public.
  7. An experience of growing boldness of faith in asking and trusting for great things
