Jehovah Rapha (The Lord Who Heals)

I am a new Christian and received Jesus as my Lord and Savior about 6 months ago.  During this time I was neck deep in sin and extremely depressed.  My life seemed to be of little value and utterly hopeless.

However, God’s Holy Spirit began convicting me and I finally broke down and cried out in submission.  Instantly I felt the presence of God in my heart and mind, and an unexplainable peace settled over me.  My life changed in the blink of an eye as I began to live for God instead of myself.  The more I did His will, the closer I drew to Him.

Fast forward a couple of months…I began to lose touch with God and His word which weakened me to the point of deliberate sin.  I ended up having sex and fornicating with a girl I did not love.  3 days later I felt sick; chilly, headache, sore throat, and fever.  My throat ‘infection’ never went away and I got lesion like yellowish bumps on the back of my throat.

It is now four months later and I finally got a throat culture for STI’s at a health clinic.  The culture came back positive for Herpes Simplex Virus and Chlamydia. By man’s standards, Herpes is incurable, but God’s ways are higher than ours!  Matthew 19:26 Jesus said to them, with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible“!  

I know in my heart and truly believe that God can do ANYTHING.  The enemy says that I have to live like this as punishment for my sin, but God promises much better.  He is my Healer, my Deliverer, and my Redeemer.  James 5:16 ” Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. ”  

Brothers and sisters reading this, you are righteous no matter what you have done!  We are clothed in Christ’s righteousness as He died for us.  Romans 3:22 ” This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe…”  I am currently fasting and repenting from all sins I am committing willfully.  

So I come here humbly and ask for fervent prayer for me. For the manifestation of the healing that Jesus paid for on the Cross.  Please ask God to strengthen my faith and draw me closer to Him.  Whatever you feel in your heart…thank you all so much ? I thank you Father in Jesus’ name for my healing that will come… and for all the love and support from my brothers and sisters out there.
