Let Him take care of business. Let’s go to:
Psalms 40:14 “Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.” (KJV)

confounded (Strong’s 2659) to blush or be ashamed, disappoint or repair;
together (Strong’s 3162) a unit, united, alike, altogether; (from Strong’s 3161) to be one, join or

Just stay focused on what you have to do here for Him. Do not get so caught up when challenges come up that try and put you down and the work that you are doing for Him. Always use good judgment and common sense protecting yourself and your loved ones. He will work things out. His correction is always fair, just and based on the actions of the person doing them.
So stay in the Word because you are with dear God, you need the protection in your mind of His Word. Because you stand for Him, you naturally will have those that will try and destroy His Plan and make things difficult for you because you are getting His work done because you love Him. The key is stick with Him so you are protected and focused on the fact that the work need get done and not the obstacles that come your way.
Talk with Him about it since He knows what you are going through anyway. As long as you keep that positive attitude and are doing for Him, He is with you. Remind yourself that this is nothing than what His Son, Jesus the Christ, went through for you giving up His Life because He defeated death – it was His Will.
Finally, let Him take care of business. He is in control so stand with Him. Remember your loved ones and how you are helping them out here and focus on that and how you can be a blessing to others, too. Do not get sidetracked with the enemy. Let Him take care of that always standing boldly for Him and Who you are in Him. He is so proud of you for sticking up for Him and knows you will continue to do so.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Knowledge,
at Your service
