Savannah posted an uplifting bible verse to her Instagram story that reads, "Do not be afraid or discouraged... The battle is not yours, but God's."

Her emotional social media post comes just hours before Todd and Julie Chrisley are expected to step in front of a judge for the first time.

As The Blast reported, a federal court official issued two warrants for their arrest early Wednesday. The U.S. Marshal was ordered to take the reality stars into custody immediately, but didn't have to because the famous duo turned themselves in freely.

The warrants were issued as part of Todd and Julie’s new criminal case accusing them of bank fraud.

According to the indictment filed in the Northern District of Georgia and obtained by The Blast, both Todd and Julie Chrisley have been charged with 11 counts related to bank fraud and tax evasion.

According to the federal sentencing guidelines, the reality stars are facing up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

Officials claim Todd and Julie set up a production company, called 7C's Productions, which served as a loan-out company for all the money earned through their popular reality show, "Chrisley Knows Best," which airs on the USA Network.

The documents claim millions of dollars were deposited into the production company account over the years, but the reality stars did not file tax returns in time for 2014, 2015 or 2016.

When the taxes were paid, officials claim the numbers were bogus and that actual amounts were falsified as to mask how much money was actually owed.

Savannah lent her support on Tuesday after Todd denied the allegations publicly.

Sharing a lengthy post, he put the blame on an ex-employee who he claimed had stolen money from the family, to which Savannah wrote, "Thank you for being YOU! You have and always will be the glue that holds us all together."

She continued, "God has a much bigger plan for all of us and this is just part of it. Thank you for being the most loving, kind hearted, and honest father. You will forever be my best friend…now let’s let God do the work. HE will never forsake us.”
