Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD That Heals - The Rock - The Wisdom of God - The Omniscience Of God
"If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I [am] the LORD who heals you."
When the LORD first referred to Himself as “Jehovah Rapha,” He did it in an interesting context. God didn’t provide healing for a person. God healed water for His people, transforming the condition of it from “bitter” to “sweet.” God enabled His people to have good-tasting drinking water that would quench their thirst. At that time, God proved His wisdom to assess a trial, and then remedy an effective solution immediately and miraculously. So, God was able to validate His identity as the Rock of our salvation, showing He is able to heal that which is bitter and corrupt by transforming it into something sweet and life-giving.
