So our current verse is:
And it's to remind us that He is our Jehovah Rapha, The God Who Heals.
I have seen amazing, miraculous healings in my lifetime. Even experienced some in my personal family. And in those moments it's so easy to remember He is our Jehovah Rapha. But for the past year and few months we've been praying for a physical healing and have yet to see it manifest. We are doing the crying, but we've yet to see the healing.
So the question starts to bounce around in our minds, "Is He really Jehovah Rapha?"
And the only answer we can give to that question is "yes."
God is who he says he is in the good and in the bad. He is who he says he is even when the days stretch on longer than we'd ever thought we'd have to wait, and when the answers aren't what we want to hear. He is still Lord. He is still Jehovah Rapha. He is still working all things for the good of those who love him.
And in that there's healing. Healing of our raw emotions. Healing in the security of his unchanging character. Healing of our hearts as we rest in him. Because he's not just our physical healer, but with such an amazing tenderness in his hands, he also heals those wounds that cannot be seen. He has yet to leave us or forsake us, rather he walks through it all beside us.
So cry out to him, because he truly is Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals.
