“The children are dressed and ready for school. But there is no food for them to eat,” the housemother of the orphanage informed George Mueller. George asked her to take the 300 children into the dining room and have them sit at the tables. He thanked God for the food and waited. George knew God would provide food for the children as he always did. Within minutes, a baker knocked on the door. “Mr. Mueller,” he said, “last night I could not sleep. Somehow I knew that you would need bread this morning. I got up and baked three batches for you. I will bring it in.” Soon, there was another knock at the door. It was the milkman. His cart had broken down in front of the orphanage. The milk would spoil by the time the wheel was fixed. He asked George if he could use some free milk. George smiled as the milkman brought in ten large cans of milk. It was just enough for the 300 thirsty children."

There’s a famous story about Muller’s faith. He was a German chemist who made the world famous. The story is this: He was working at a laboratory in Berlin. He was working on a compound that was used in the production of rubber. Every day, he would eat lunch, and after lunch he would go to the lab and start working, but every night he would go home to pray. In the morning, he would come back to the lab and work into the evening, and in the evening he would come home to pray again. This went on for years.
I've heard varying stories about this particular story at the orphanage. The first one I heard, was that the first person to offer the orphanage food, George turned him away, saying something about how God was going to get all the glory, and not the first one to offer food. Then someone else knocked and whatever the story of the second knocker, he accepted the offering.
