Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

It doesn’t matter the situation, God will forever be God. He is unchangeable, His Word is unchangeable; They are Yes and Amen!

Blessings!
