Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail. – Ex 9:26

For the duration of the ten plagues in Egypt, God’s people were protected. When God sent flies to cover the land, He promised, “I will make a difference between My people and your people” (Ex 8:23). When God sent pestilence to kill the livestock in Egypt, He promised, “Nothing shall die of all that belongs to the children of Israel” (Ex 9:4). When God rained down hail to kill every man and beast in the fields of Egypt, “Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail” (Ex 9:26).

Even though the world came crashing down around them, the people of Israel were protected. As Egypt was paying the price for rebellion against God, the children of Israel stayed safe and sound. The message for us is this: no matter what’s happening around you – a recession, a drought, or the worst storm the world has ever seen – God promises to protect you because you are His!

There should be a notable difference in your life, compared to the people around you who do not know God. There should be something about you that attracts others into God’s Kingdom. You are the recipient of God’s favor, His protection, and His provision! Pray that His hand would be all over you, no matter what is going on around you!

Prayer:

Father, thank You for making me shine. I know You put a wall of protection around me at all times. No matter what is happening in the world around me, I will not fear; for You are with me!
