Chosen from humble beginnings

1 Chronicles 17:16. “Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that you have brought me this far?”

David was overwhelmed by the goodness of God and His faithfulness in bringing him to the place where he was established in his kingdom. He had been through some very rough times on the way, especially when he had to flee from Saul who desperately wanted to kill him. All these circumstances were forgotten as he thought about the amazing favour of God in his life. It humbled him as he thought about his beginnings as a shepherd boy, the least of all his brothers, and yet God had chosen him and raised him up to have an everlasting dynasty with Christ in his genealogy.

How has God raised you up in your life? He is always faithful and there are times when you are particularly aware of the complete undeserved favour and mercy that He has shown you. What a wonderful God we serve who lifts us up from humble beginnings and makes us priests and kings unto our God and joint heirs with Jesus.

About bishopmichaelreid

Michael Reid believes by building on the foundation of our biblically based family ethos, and maintaining a focus of miracles, healing and faith, the church can expand under God-anointed leadership – regardless of ‘qualification’. There are countless examples throughout history of God using men as leaders, oftentimes, when according to human logic, they might seem unqualified for the job. Such was the case with Bishop Michael Reid, an atheist policeman, whose life was transformed by the grace of God in a meeting led by late Demos Shakarian [founder of Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship International]. At the meeting under divine instruction God told Demos “Go get that man, I have a work for him to do” and Bishop Reid’s life in Christ began. As he started in the work God had given him, Bishop Reid quickly discovered God had given him the gifts of healing, discernment, knowledge and deliverance. He has been operating in these gifts – praying for the sick and preaching the gospel ever since with miracles and healing following.
