Healing through Redemption
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who FORGIVES ALL thine iniquities, who HEALS ALL of thy diseases, who redeemeth thy life from destruction…” (Psalms 103:1-4)
God has provided healing through Redemption, and is the standard God has set for ALL His children to experience here on earth. Jesus paid the price for our freedom: spirit, soul and body, and the responsibility falls on us to come into agreement with the revealed will of God for our lives. (2 Tim. 2:15) (Amos 3:3)
In order to experience “that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” for healing, it is imperative that we find out what God has to say about a subject near and dear to His heart, as His name is also Rapha, our Physician. Proverbs 4:20-22 reveals that God’s words and sayings are life and health to all our flesh. The word health is “marpe” in Hebrew, which comes from the word “rapha”, which comes from the word for physician. To this day in Israel, when a person goes to the doctor, they say they are going to Rapha. (Romans 12:2)
In the mind of God, we have already been forgiven, already been healed, already been redeemed from destruction. He has provided everything we need to reach the position He has placed us in, and our part is get the seed planted. For the word to grow, we must hear, read, meditate, speak out the word and become a doer of the truth we hear. (Isaiah 53:5; Mt. 13:3; 23; James 1:25)
By being a doer of the word, we will begin to experience what God has for us. As we begin to speak the same thing He has revealed about who we are, and who Christ is in us, and the position He’s placed us in concerning healing, we will find ourselves walking more and more in the divine health He has provided through the whipping post. (1 Peter 2:24)
James 1:25 says that as we look into the perfect law of liberty, and continue therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
