God: requires us to go through it on His behalf….
1 Peter 4:16-17 (KJV “Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?”
At times we are caught in the middle of some things which lead us into the position of being accused of wrong behavior and that is an accusation brought about by perception; sometimes it is erroneous but you got to deal with it.
You stand up for the truth and it can bring about suffering, but your Father is assuring you that if and when that happens you ought not be ashamed. For if it is to happen to anyone, let it be you for we know that judgment must first begin in God’s house.
Count it a blessing when folks you trust and help turn on you like a rabid animal with all the venom hell can unleash on a person. Just remind God of His words to always be your guide and protector. He will come to your assistance.
