Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

The last three nights I didn't get much sleep.  I've found myself wide awake with seemingly a million different thoughts going through my head.
I remember years ago when I got a revelation of God's healing power.  I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was already healed.  It may not have looked like I was healed, but I knew it was a finished work.  I was able to rest in that truth.  I didn't look at my head every day for hair, I just knew it was growing.  Honestly, I hardly thought about it at all.
I have no doubt about God's healing power, it was bought for us over 2,000 years ago on the cross.

Now more than ever, I want a revelation of God's love for me.
I have an excellent father, growing up I had no doubt he loved me.  I knew he'd do anything for me.  What about God, though?  Does he really love me?
I know he's healed me, but does he care about the details?  Does he care about the thoughts that are running rampant through my head late at night?
John calls himself the apostle whom Jesus loved.  Rather than bragging on his love for Christ, he talked about Christ's love for him.
He loves us.  We are His beloved.  He is working in our lives even when we don't see it.
Matthew 8:2-3 says,
A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy.

Jesus is always willing.  He is willing to tangibly show His great love to you.  He is willing to heal you, He is ALWAYS willing.  He is ALWAYS faithful.

Wherever you are at in life, know that He loves you and He is for you.  There's no need to be up worried, you can rest in the knowledge that He is working.
