Acts 19:38-41

38 If, then, Demetrius and his fellow craftsmen have a grievance against anybody, the courts are open and there are proconsuls. They can press charges. 39 If there is anything further you want to bring up, it must be settled in a legal assembly. 40 As it is, we are in danger of being charged with rioting because of what happened today. In that case we would not be able to account for this commotion, since there is no reason for it.”41 After he had said this, he dismissed the assembly.

  1. The believers were threatened by this mob. God used an unbeliever, who was concerned about their profit and their ability to stay hired, to quell the mob and protect the believers.

    It is not our own might that preserves us. He uses His plans and His means and we get to sit back and watch the power of His sovereign hand.
