Jehovah Rapha


Jehovah Rapha

He has risen with healing in His wings
Risen with healing in His wings
Jehovah Rapha, our Healer
Lord, God Almighty
Deliverer of all our diseases 

Jehovah Rapha, the Lord
By His stripes, I am healed
He took my infirmities
When He was nailed to that tree
And now I walk in divine health
With life abundantly
I now walk in victory

One way to discover what God is truly like is to take note of the names by which He describes Himself. In Exodus, God described Himself as Jehovah Rapha. The chief meaning of Jehovah is, “to be or to exist.” It can also suggest, “to become known.” The word Rapha means, “to restore, to heal, or to make healthful.” When God declared Himself to Israel as Jehovah Rapha, He was telling them, “I am the God Who heals.” 

God’s very name is Healing. And He is the Healer of all your diseases. The prophet Malachi said this, “But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings.” 

What an awesome God we serve! He is not only the merciful God Who loves us and pities us in our time of trouble. He is also Jehovah Rapha; our God who heals! You can be healed today and walk in divine health!
