If you walk in integrity: God will defend you.
If you walk in truth: God will defend you.
If you walk in uprightness: God will defend you.
If you walk in righteousness: God will defend you.
I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that God defends.
People may slander your name, they may gossip about you, they may try to hurt you, they may ignore you, they may believe a lie about you, they may not try to get all the facts, they may hate you...but it doesn't matter because God WILL defend you.
It may not happen on your time table. It may takes years, but trust me God will defend you.
If you're a professing believer and others around you know your take your faith in God seriously, then they are watching how you respond. They are looking for you to be cutting and cold, cruel and mean. But don't! Let God defend you.
Be a person who gets the facts. Be a person who knows there's 2 sides to a story. Don't believe what you've heard. Do your own homework. Don't be bullied. Don't live in fear of a bully.
There's people who live with pain so deep they act out, they lash out, build walls, give you the cold sholder and are down right rude!
Don't respond, don't react...rest in God. In His hands.
God will defend you!
My mom always used to say, "Truth crushed to earth will rise again."
If you know you're on the side of truth, trust that, with time it will rise again and God will fight for you!
