This is my all time favorite verse in the Bible.We do not need to defend ourselves.The God we serve is able to deliver us.But even if he does not.we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.
take this time to press into the Father. ask Him to show you what's to be learned. it's in our deepest suffering that means the most when we choose to praise God no matter what. the reward is coming dear friend!
