God says "Healing is what I am "


Today's Scripture

“Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows . . . he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed” - (Isaiah 53:4-5).

Thoughts for Today

Are you hurting today? Maybe you are struggling with physical pain, such as a headache, an illness, or a disease. Or maybe you are experiencing the emotional pain of disappointment, depression, or hurt feelings. Or perhaps you are hurting spiritually from bitterness, unconfessed sin, or a broken spirit. If you are hurting today, then seek the help of Jehovah-Rapha, the Great Physician.

In Exodus 15:26, God introduces His name as Jehovah-Rapha, “the Lord who heals.” The word rapha means "to heal, to cure, to restore." God does not promise to heal us only in an isolated instance of illness or need. Rather, God says He is healing. By calling Himself Jehovah-Rapha, He is saying, "Healing is what I am."

Jehovah-Rapha is our wholeness. We see this truth echoed in the New Testament every time Jesus says to a person, "Be made whole." Wholeness is God's desire for us. No disease—nothing that causes us pain or suffering—can withstand the healing touch of Jesus. As Christians, we experience wholeness even in death as we spend eternity with Him.

Jehovah-Rapha is our restorer. He is our healer of not only physical illness, but of the hurts in our heart and soul. When we are emotionally overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, grieving, or distressed, God is there for us. Only God can repair a broken heart. Only God can purify an unclean soul. Only God can set us free from addictions. Only God can heal us of sin. The Scriptures tell us, “He [Jesus] himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24).

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Thank You for being Jehovah-Rapha. You are the God who heals. I thank You for Your healing power in my life right now and into eternity. Right now, I ask for Your healing in every area of my life. May no area be kept from Your healing touch. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, 
Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
