Your Case Is Different

8th August 2019

Scripture Reading: Exodus 2: 1-10


“And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.” (Exodus 2: 3)

In Exodus 1 vs. 22, Pharaoh ordered that all male children born to the Jews be cast into the river. The idea was for them to drown. Moses was cast in that same river, albeit in an ark made from bulrushes, and he didn’t drown; rather, he was recovered and taken to the palace. What happened to other male children of the Hebrews did not happen to him; the pitfall and disaster that came to others didn’t come to him. His case was different.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the negativity that happens to others will not happen to you; the misfortune that may have come to others will not come to you; the troubles that others encountered and went under may come to you but you will not go under; the negative outcomes that others received will not be your portion; the policies that swallowed other businesses will not swallow yours.

Whatever negativity that others experienced will not be your experience: where others failed, you will succeed; where others lost, you will make gains; where others were rejected, you will be accepted; where others were denied access, you will be granted access; where others were not favoured, you will be favoured; where others struggled, you will make progress with ease; where others were reduced, you will increase greatly.

God’s hand was on the child Moses, and the river that should swallow him had no choice but to spare him. The favour and prosperity upon the child Moses was more than enough to hinder what wanted to swallow or hinder him. Hear me as I hear the Lord: as surely as the hand of God is upon you and the blood of Jesus has rescued you, you will not go under, neither will you be a victim.

Stay connected to Jesus, and He will disconnect you from every power of hell that wants you to have negative outcomes; stay connected to Jesus, and your case will be different.


What swallows others will not swallow me, in Jesus’ name!
