8-Jehovah-Rapha

Exodus 15:26

He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”

How reassuring to know that we have a God that heals us! In my life my Jehovah Rapha has healed me from fear, a failed marriage, and anger. Not that I don’t sometimes feel fear or anger, but they don’t control me like they once did.

God wanted the Israelites to be healed from the past and live in peace. He loved His chosen people and only wanted what was best for them. He feels the same about us today. Our heavenly Father loves us and wants to heal us. He wants us to live in peace. He wants to heal us, but we have to be willing to admit that we need to be healed. We have to stop living in denial and accept God’s love for us. We need to let go of the thing that keeps us from living our lives fully and open our hands to receive the love and healing that God is waiting to pour out. He will not force us to accept this gift. We have to be at the point where we are sick and tired of the way things are and we are ready to experience how things can be with God. It is up to you, my friend. If you are ready to accept this gift of healing, open your heart to healing with the following prayer:

I am opening my heart to you, Jehovah Rapha, for healing. I am opening my body to you for healing. I open my spirit and my mind to you for healing. I am struggling with_______________ and need healing, Lord. I know that your healing is a gift and I let go of my hold on this issue and open myself up to your love and healing. I thank you and I praise you for the healing that is already taking place. I give you ALL the glory!

Amen

God can heal EVERYTHING! Addictions, a broken marriage, a chronic illness, a mental illness, spiritual issues, etc. God can heal it! You are never alone in your struggles. Jehovah Rapha is ALWAYS with us! Contact me if I can pray for you. I am here for you, sister friend!

the new doves nest

I am dedicating this post to the courageous women of the Dove’s Nest Recovery Home in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Dove’s Nest is part of The Charlotte Rescue Mission. I  found out about this christian recovery home for women through the On-line Bible Study with Proverbs 31 Ministries. These women are remarkable in their strength and determination to change their lives. For more information on the Doves Nest or to make a donation go to http://www.charlotterescuemission.org. I have faith that Jehovah Rapha will heal these women.
