Jehovah Rapha. He is the Lord who heals.
When you are in a season of unknowns, a season of pain, where do you look for help? As we are walking a difficult journey, we can become so intently focused on our healing that we forget about our Healer. Instead, we focus on the wilderness and the seemingly endless trek back to wholeness.
While leaning into your healing journey is crucial, it’s vital to your path to seek the Healer – Jehovah Rapha, the One who heals.
Psalm 147:3 tells us, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” This verse shows that He will heal you wholly, from your broken heart and spirit all the way to physical wounds. He is the God of complete healing, and He wants to pull you out of the pain, restore you, and refresh your weary soul.
How long has it been since you’ve felt His peace wash over you, bringing comfort and love and quenching your spirit?
The Bible reminds us over and over of His faithfulness, love, and healing – for you:
“The Lord gives sight to the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous.”
He will lift your head, heart, and spirit as you seek healing.
“This what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: ‘I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you.'”
2 Kings 20:5
He sees you, and He knows the depth of your pain. This verse is a promise of His healing!
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
You don’t have to strive. You only need to go to Him, and He will give you rest (in your heart, mind, and body).
As you travel the path of your healing process, you can lean into these verses for peace and comfort. But more importantly – trust in the Healer. There you’ll find quiet and calm for your worn-out soul.
