GOD, THE HEALER

Well, Folks, I have finally succeeded a bit on work on my pages.  Under God’s Provision, there is a drop down for God, My Healer.  This is an excerpt from that page:

The setting in which the name Jehovah-rophe first appears is the wilderness.  The Lord had been leading Israel in the wilderness for three days without water.  Since the Lord God was not lost, He must deliberately have been keeping them from water.  He will use this occasion to prove Himself in a new way.  He had appeared to Abraham as the Provider; now He is ready to show Himself as the Healer.

Healing is a part of God’s provision in our lives.  Paul wrote, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19 NKJV).  Inherent in this promise is the truth that if we need healing (or anything else), God will provide it for us.

The people must have been excited when they came to the river, Marah.  What disappointment when they found the waters were bitter!  They may have wondered why God would trifle with them in their time of need.  They knew they were in desperate need of water; God knew they were in desperate need of a revelation of Himself.  It was time to reveal Himself in a new way….https://onetahayes.com

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

One Response to GOD, THE HEALER

    Your excerpt and the mention of Marah reminded me of the opening of Psalm 137:

    By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
    when we remembered Zion.
    There on the poplars
    we hung our harps,
    or there our captors asked us for songs,
    our tormentors demanded songs of joy;
    they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”

    The Psalms are magnificent. Thanks for bringing this one to mind.
