“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I
will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10 NLT)
God chose Israel
through Abraham because He wanted to, not because the people deserved it
(Deuteronomy 7:6-8; 9:4-6.) Although God chose the Israelites to represent Him
to the world, they failed to do this. God thus punished them and sent them to
captivity. Nowadays, all believers are God’s chosen people, and we all share
the responsibility of representing Him to the world. One day, God will bring
all His faithful people together. We need not fear because: (1) God is with us
(“… for I am with you.”); (2) God has established a firm relationship
with us (“… for I am your God.”); and (3) God gives us assurance of His
strength, assistance, and victory over sin and Death. Are you aware of all the
ways in which God has helped you?(Tyndale Study Bible)

acknowledged this? I pose this question to myself too.
