Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD That Heals - The Rock - The Wisdom of God - The Omniscience Of God
The LORD's Benefits
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good [things], [so that] your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
One of the chief characteristics of God’s promise of “the Rock of salvation” is centered on His ability to transform the soul. God proved He was willing and able when He first revealed Himself as Jehovah Rapha, transforming bitter water to sweet, sustaining life in the wilderness. King David recognized that God continued to manifest Himself in this way. God alone is wise to bless the soul with spiritual healing from iniquity – the disease of sin. David recognized God was able to provide healing from eternal destruction through mercy, satisfying the soul, not just the body. This is how the Lord transforms the heart from bitter to sweet.
