Jehovah Rapha

Every three months we get this little devotional at church called; The Word For You Today. Sometimes I pick it up and read a few of the days all at once instead of reading them as I should. Tonight I picked it up and turned it to December 10th. The title is...Believe God For Your Healing. The verse they used was the last few words of Exodus 15:26, "I am the Lord, who heals you." For me to read this tonight I believe is a God thing. If you know me you know I have a heart issue. Lately it has been making me sick a lot and I'm not real happy about it. As I read this devotion tonight I realized that I need to really believe God is going to heal me and not just say it because that's what everyone wants to hear from me. Here is some of what the devotion says...

One of the names God chooses to be called by is "Jehova Rapha", which means "I am the Lord who heals." Now, if God calls himself the healer, then you have the right to believe what He says and expect that, given an opportunity, He will perform His role competently.

Here are a few verses that were used...

Psalm 138:2b NLT
for your promises are backed
    by all the honor of your name.

Malachi 3:6a
 “I am the Lord, and I do not change."

Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

So...I read this and thought about how I have really just got to do what this says...

Believe God for my healing. And, I have to pray in faith...believing! 

I know that this is all true. So...

Starting right now I am going to start claiming what I know to be true. Jesus Christ is the same and He never changes. He is the only one who can heal and He is going to heal me. Marge told me some weeks back that...the answer is on the way! I believed it then but somewhere lost that belief. Right now I am claiming that word and in faith believing that my healing is on the way!
