Intimacy With God

I love the house where You live, O Lord, the place where Your glory dwells. (Psalm 26:8) One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple. (Psalm 27:4) My heart says of You, “Seek His face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek. (Psalm 27:8) As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? (Psalm 42:1-2) I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory. Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You. I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands. (Psalm 63:2-4)

How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. (Psalm 84:1-2) Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. (Psalm 84:10)

I do not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. (Deuteronomy 8:3) I will not depart from the commands of God’s lips; I treasure the words of His mouth more than my daily bread. (Job 23:12) When God’s words come, I will eat them; they are my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear the name of the Lord God Almighty. (Jeremiah 15:16)

I will listen to the voice of Jesus. As He calls me and leads me, I will follow Him, because I know His voice. (John 10:3-5) I love Jesus and will obey Him; He loves me and will show Himself to me. He and the Father will come and make Their home with me. (John 14:21,23) No longer do I relate to God on the basis of the experience of others. Instead, whether I am the least or the greatest, I myself will know God. (Jeremiah 31:34) Because Jesus has gone before me, I will approach God’s throne with confidence. (Hebrews 4:16) As I come near to God, He will come near to me. (James 4:8) Though I was once far away, I have been brought near to God through the blood of Christ. (Ephesians 2:13) Jesus Himself dwells in my heart through faith. (Ephesians 3:17) He will be with me always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:20)
