The Israelites felt that way too. Look at Isaiah 42...The Israelites are the chosen people, and yet they continued to sin and turn away from the Lord their God. In verses 23-25, in particular verse 24
"Who gave Jacob for plunder, and Israel to the robbers? Was it not the Lord, He against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, nor were they obedient to His law...."
But then we turn over to chapter 43, and God offers them redemption and restoration:
- they belong to God...
- He created them,
- He formed them..
- He gave them their true identity...
- They are loved by God
- He has delivered and redeemed them
