Winter Sunrise in the Cairngorms, Scotland.

“Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the sons of Israel and the cattle of the Levites. And the Levites shall be Mine; I am the Lord.”


As I sit watching birds this morning going back and forward to the bird table I see that the peanuts are the favourites of the Bluetits etc. Meanwhile the fat balls get hammered by the mob of starlings occasionally and the seed has a visit now and again. But sometimes that order of choice is upset, like now there is a Great Tit on the fat balls! It is all a matter of choice. It reminds me of school playtime games, captains choose their teams carefully for their fitness and football skills. Life is all about choices and being chosen, or not sometimes.

God chose the tribe of the Levites to serve Him in His temple over and above other notable options; the Levites were not the most favoured by men or the biggest tribe, but they were God’s chosen to serve Him. Throughout scripture we see examples of those chosen not being who men would choose; God chose a humble carpenter and his young bride from a despised northern region to be the home for His Son. That Son went on to choose common working men to follow Him, rather than the great and good of society. What made these folks special was that He chose them!

Dear reader, you may not be favoured by your peers, indeed you may be despised by them, but Almighty God chooses you today. The Prince of Glory has saved you for His own, despite your weakness or inability He loves you. Stand tall today, you are chosen by Him!

    1. As I ponder my own words about being chosen by Him, I am overwhelmed in His love David. Our Redemption is not a matter of our choice of Him, but rather His choice of us. His choice is a wide invitation open to all but He knows who won’t come to Him; what compassion! Thank you brother for your precious encouragement, may He shower you and your family in His love today.

  1. Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5)

    I’m Standing Tall Today, because of Him!!
    I love your story, Alan🙏🏾💕

  2. In my current condition of absolute frailty, without God I would indeed sink. HE is my ROCK and sure foundation, Bless you and thank you for encouraging Word. He has indeed chosen those who LOVE HIM to do many and various roles not just ministry but powerful roles to love and encourage others……..IN THE MIDST of all life’s personal circumstances. Use every day! Thank you and blessings.

  3. I love what you say about being chosen! It brings so much to how we become better and more of a leader when no others have stepped forward. Thanks for your way of bringing me and others to god as he is our Saviour and leader over all. Bringing his type of message makes me think of what I learned in church through fellowship and listening to good people like pastors giving sermons & classroom teachers trying to move mountains of kids that are listening but take a lot of time learning.
