Weekly Insights into the Names of God
(Taken from the To Bear HIs Name Study by Sandra J. Mikler Davis)
This year we have been looking at the names of God:
  • January - ADONAI = our Sovereign Ruler; Almighty Master; Lord over all!!
  • February - JEHOVAH = He is Self-existent, Eternal, Righteous, Holy, and YHWH-I = AM WHO I AM.
  • March - ELOHIM = He is the Creator God; actively involved in the world He made.
  • April - EL ELYON = signifies the exaltedness, supremacy, and overwhelming majesty of His deity.
  • May - EL ROI = the all-seeing God
  • June - EL SHADDAI = God Almighty, complete, perfect; having integrity
  • July - JEHOVAH TSIDKENU = LORD our Righteousness; altogether Righteous
  • August - JEHOVAH ROHI = LORD my Shepherd; the Great Shepherd
  • September - JEHOVAH SHALOM = The LORD of Peace
This month: JEHOVAH ROPHE (RAPHA) = The LORD Who Heals

In Exodus 15:22-26, we see the first account of Jehovah Rophe as active in the healing process:
Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea, and they went into the Desert of Shur.
For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water.
When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water, because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.)
So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, ‘What are we to drink?’ Then Moses cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a piece of wood.
He threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.
There the LORD made a decree and a law for them, and there He tested them.
He said, ‘If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His eyes, if you pay attention to His commands and keep all His decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians;
for I am the LORD (Jehovah), who heals (Rophe) you.
Next week we will look into the words of this decree and law to learn more about what JEHOVAH ROPHE teaches regarding healing. 

  • What bitter issue am I struggling with today?
  • Is there any grumbling going on in my heart attitude?
  • Do I have a true desire to be healed of the difficult issue(s)?
