In your infinite wisdom and by your amazing grace, I fear no evil, for you are with me. I will remember, all of my days, that against you no one can stand.

Many things in this world are not of God, this truth is spoken repeatedly in scripture.
God can use His word to penetrate our thickest walls, breaking down those barriers that seem to hold him out.

"And if I perish, I perish"- Queen Esther.
