God’s will is to choose us. Wondering if he has chosen someone else is to ignore, even to spurn, his choice for us. When we love or are loved we experience something that does not belong to this earth. “He chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before him in love” (Ephesians 1:4).
