“So in the present case, I say to you, stay away from these men and let them alone, for if this plan or action is of men, it will be overthrown; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them; or else you may even be found fighting against God.”
Acts 5:38,39 (NASB)

If something is of man, it will be overthrown. If it is of God, it will stand the test of time. Be patient.
