Jehovah Rapha – The Lord Who Heals You
Written by: Ricky Spears Recorded by: Ricky Spears
Our earthly bodies and minds are not what our heavenly bodies and minds will be. Sometimes we may have an affliction from our birth such as a physical deformity or a mental disorder; we may get suddenly injured physically, mentally, or emotionally; or things may deteriorate gradually over time as we get older. As things interfere with the life we want to live, we recognize that we need healing: healing from physical and mental afflictions, healing from emotional hurts, and even healing in our relationships with others.
God told Moses, "I am the God who Heals you (Jehovah Rapha)." Jesus was called a physician--The Great Physician. Just as He calls himself Savior and desires to save us, so he calls himself Healer and desires to heal us. Just as He cannot save that which is not in danger, so He cannot heal that which is not afflicted. In this meditation, we'll honor God as Jehovah Rapha - The Lord Who Heals You.
