"And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee" (Ex. 15:26).

One reason why you should know that it is God's will for you to be healed is that God healed the sick in the Old Testament. God said that "I am God and I change not."

So if we can find where he healed people in the Old Testament who were servants of God, then we can be sure that He heals us, as sons of God. Why? Because Hebrews, Chapter 8 says we have a better covenant, established upon better promises.

The word "LORD" in all caps means "Jehovah Rapha," the Lord thy God that healeth thee. Healing was provided for God's people when they were delivered from Egypt. Jehovah Rapha showed up and said, "I'm God that heals you."

Hebrews 11:6 says, "He that comes to God must believe that He is, and that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him." We must believe that He is what? If we are coming to Him for healing, we must believe that He is Jehovah Rapha, our healer.

Well, if He's Jehovah Rapha in the Old Testament, and He that comes to God must believe that He is Jehovah Rapha now, then healing must be provided for us and must be available for us now. Just like it was provided for them in the Old Testament. Healing belongs to you.

God's will is that you be healed from the crown of your head to the very soles of your feet. Exodus 23:25 says, "And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee."

He's talking once again to Israel. He said, "I'll bless what you eat. I'll bless what you drink. And I'll take sickness away from you." Well, if God is still God; if He's still the same; if He's taking sickness away from them and blessing their bread and water, then God must bless our bread and bless our water and take away sickness from us.

Healing belongs to you.
