Nevertheless, Müller sat the children at the table, which had been laid with all the crockery and cutlery for breakfast, fully confident that God would provide.
As they gave thanks for the food they were about to eat, there was a knock at the door. The baker stood there, with a basket of freshly baked bread. He explained that God had woken him in the middle of the night and told him to go and bake bread for the orphans. As he left, the milkman appeared. The wheel had fallen off his cart right outside the orphan house, and he needed help to mend it. However, he believed that if he left it unattended, the milk on-board would be stolen. As he was going to lose the milk anyway, he would rather give it to George Müller.
And so the children had their breakfast, proving that God truly “works in mysterious ways”!
