God Is A Healer
EXODUS 15:26 NRSV 26 ...for I am the LORD who heals you."
When God first revealed Himself to the people of Israel after their deliverance from Egypt, He called Himself "the Lord Who Heals."
He didn't just describe Himself as a healer -- He actually gave Himself that name. One of God's names is "The One Who Heals" or we could just say "Healer."
Certainly God heals physically. Yet we should not limit our thinking on this. God heals, or makes whole and sound, everything that He touches. (So, if we need healing, our plan should be to get closer to God.)
The idea of making whole and sound is what we should focus on.
God, by His nature, makes things whole. He IS a healer. A healer of bodies, of minds, of relationships, of nations -- whatever needs making whole and sound.
The important point is to realize that we need not convince God to heal, because that is His very nature.
No wonder that when Jesus of Nazareth, who was God in the flesh, came along that:
MATTHEW 4:23 NRSV 23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people.
SAY THIS: I serve the God who heals. My God is a healer.
