Beloved. My Children have been crying out, “Is there no balm in Gilead, is there no physician there who can help me?”
My answer to you is yes, My Child, there is a soothing balm and a Physician greater than any on earth.
I AM Jehovah Rophi, the LORD, your Healer. No longer drink from the waters of Marah, which leave a bitter taste and bring no relief, but run to the oasis of Elim.
Here are Living Waters to soothe you and refresh you. There is no cost to you, My Child.
The full price has been paid. I AM He who carried your griefs and your sorrows and pains. I have paid the ultimate price for you, My Bride.
I AM the Mender of broken hearts and broken bodies. Cast ALL your cares upon Me.
No more worrying, My Darling, My Love. Lean on Me as I bring you out of this wilderness called the “world system”.
You have a safe Place even in the midst of darkness. I AM He who sustains you. I will be your relief and satisfy your soul.
Feast on the abundance of My House. I prepare a banquet in the very midst of your enemies.
Come to the Fountain of Life, the Oasis of My Spirit. You shall be called TREES of righteousness, the planting of the LORD.
Encamp by the Waters with Me, Beloved. Drink from the River of My Delights.
Come and dwell in the Oasis of My Love. I AM He who makes you whole. In My Light, you shall see Light.
