Publishers Description Obstacle to Comfort is a 55-minute video on the life of George Muller of Bristol. Muller's early life was characterized by what would today be called juvenile delinquency. Upon meeting the true Jesus Christ, his life was forever changed. He was a builder of schools, a supporter of missions, and a father to some 10,000 orphans. The amazing issue of his life does not lie in what he did but in the way he accomplished it. George Muller operated by faith. He relied solely on God to meet all his needs. He refused to accept donations from unbelievers, and when he began his Scriptural Knowledge Institution to accomplish what God had put on his heart to do, he and his partner possessed no more than one shilling, or twelve pence, between them. Muller refused to reveal his needs to anyone but told them only to God, privately, on his knees. But, oh, what the Lord accomplished through that prayer Reviewing the 63 years he spent in a faith ministry, one finds the results staggering. The schools collectively taught 121,683 students. The orphanage had five massive buildings that accommodated the needs of 10,000 orphans. It is believed that 2,813 orphans left the institution as believers, and they in turn led thousands more to Christ. It is also believed that of the 2,000 students in the orphanage at the time that George Muller closed his diary, 609 of them were believers. In addition, the Institution distributed more than 281,000 Bibles, nearly 1.5 million New Testaments, and over 111 million tracts. Several hundred missionaries received financial assistance, totaling nearly 260,000. Nearly 1,500,000 was contributed to the Institution as a direct result of his prayers. His principles survived his death, and, by 1939, the total funds prayed into the Institution amounted to approximately 2,370,000. George Muller's testimony is a wonderful example of God's grace through "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man."
