Building Intimacy With God

DAY 1 OF 5

Day 1: Is intimacy with God possible?

We talk a lot about intimacy with God (whether or not we actually use those words). Knowing Jesus is supposed to cure our loneliness, give us purpose in life, and help calm our fears. While an intimate relationship with God is presented as a “cure all” for both now and eternity, few Christians actually know what intimacy with God practically means.

One of my favorite authors, Dr. Larry Crabb, once said, “I know that God is all I need, but I don’t yet know Him well enough for Him to be all that I have.”

As we face the fear of losing loved ones, possessions and jobs, do we know God well enough for Him to be all that we have? Is it even possible to have that deep and meaningful of a relationship with the living God?

God told the Israelites, “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with your whole heart.” I believe that same promise is for you and me. I don’t have more of God only because I don’t want more of God. 

God can use our current circumstances to awaken in us a desire for more of Him. When we seek more of Him, we will have more of Him.

Because intimacy with God is so intangible for most of us, this plan will look at:

Day 2: Barriers to Intimacy with God
