What is one key verse?
“Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them.” I’ve realized rebelling against the one person who loves and wants to protect me actually pushes myself out of alignment with Him. “Suffering” with Him is better than happiness without Him.
