In a Nutshell: Persecution comes with the Blessings of YeHoVaH.
Because of Isaac’s blessings, the Philistines envied Isaac and asked him to move away from them. In the meanwhile, they closed his wells and laid claim to the wells Isaac’s herdsmen dug. Ultimately they wanted to make an alliance with Isaac because it was obvious they could not stop him because YeHoVaH’s favor was on Isaac.
We must endure the persecution in order to enjoy the blessings.
It’s like eating at the table YeHoVaH prepares before us in the presence of our enemies as David wrote in Psalm 23. YeHoVaH does not add sorrow to His blessings, but people will bring sorrow.
