God-Who He is-Yahweh Rapha

Does God really care if I am sick? Does He notice when your child's life is threatened by some horrible disease? Nowhere does scripture tell us that God will heal all people of all diseases. But, He will heal many people of many diseases. There is no health without the healing God. In His wholeness, we find a measure of health on earth, and a full measure of health in heaven. No one ever feels pain in heaven. God heals, of that, there is no doubt. Sometimes He allows the body to heal itself, at other times, He miraculously quickens the process. Sometimes, He gives ultimate healing, by bringing His children home with Him. God is Yahweh Rapha, the healing God. This should be enough to turn our bitter waters, into sweet waters.

I'm sure it's hard to want healing, but not get it the way you want. Someday though, there will be no more pain, or hurting. We will all be whole, healthy, and happy. I can't wait!

Thank you for reminding me of God's healing power. Your post reminds me of the many times Jesus healed people in the gospels. Jesus healed people in surprising and miraculous ways. We can still see his healing power at work today. Have a beautiful day Denise!

Though we always want God to heal here on earth, like you said, Denise, sometimes he gives the ultimate healing in Heaven. Thankful for his healing of my sin-sick soul--a healing that happens here on earth and lasts for eternity.
Blessings!
Pam

This was a very refreshing look at our Healer..Our awesome God.
Even when God heals a disease, ultimately our complete healing does not come until we enter Heaven.
Thank you for pointing out this wonderful truth my friend!
Blessings and love~ Lisa
