Acts 13:50 But the Jews incited the devout women of high standing and the leading men of the city, stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and drove them out of their district.
You know I believe we stir ourselves up in God, other people can stir us up too. But and here's the thing at this time, be aware the devil may stir up people against you too. Even influential people. Here the Jews incited the devout women. And you know the devil still incites religious, even sincere people against us today. It's revival and riots. Don't expect a move of God without persecution being stirred up against you. One goes with the other sorry. Like with Paul and Barnabas, some persecution may come from the mainstream church and some even from key figures in the city. But no matter what's stirred up against you never back down. Sean Feucht recently had riots and protests at his praise and worship event. Antifa, and Satanists came to persecute them, even broke some of their equipment. But they did not stop them. You maybe experiencing persecution being stirred up against you. That shows you're doing the right thing and the devil is mad. Revival and riots Prayer:
Father thank You for stirring the waters of revival. Help me to endure the persecution and riots today and not take it personally in Jesus' name, Amen.
