God is not into numbers the way we think of numbers. Even though so many people believe in Him, we are not just a tick in the eternal shepherd’s staff.

We can certainly draw strength from a relationship that is not just looking at us to do something wrong and punish us. Our focus should be on this personal love He has for us!

Romans 9:27b-28 (MSG) 27 … If each grain of sand on the seashore were numbered and the sum labeled “chosen of God,” They’d be numbers still, not names; salvation comes by personal selection. 28 God doesn’t count us; he calls us by name. Arithmetic is not his focus.
