Finding Intimacy With God

I love having an outlet to share my faith journey with other women. I believe it’s so important to support one another and encourage each other to reach our God-given potential. Today I want to share with you my thoughts on finding intimacy with God.

Recently I took my “spiritual temperature.” Have you ever done this? 

I often do this with my husband as I found it’s easier to be honest when I have someone else checking in with me.

We ask questions like “How is your relationship with Jesus? How much time are you spending in the Word? In prayer? How are you feeling spiritually? Do you feel any worry, fear, anxiety?”

Do you check in with a partner on your faith? Here is why you should take your spiritual temperature to help you find a deeper intimacy with God.

A few weeks ago after I checked in, I realized I wasn’t spending as much time communing with God as I should be.

I “talk” to God all day long; while I’m doing dishes, driving around town or during one of our kid’s meltdowns.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s good to have a continual conversation with God. But I had to ask myself, although I am spending time talking to God, am I spending intimate time with Him? Seeking His desires? Listening to Him speak. Being 100% present, in the moment with Him? I don’t like admitting this, but the answer was no.

I tried to understand why this was happening. Of course life gets busy and it’s easy to get distracted by our required daily tasks. Then before you know it the day is over! Busyness is real and it’s definitely important to make quiet time with God a priority. But I also started wondering if it was something deeper.

Was I believing a lie that God doesn’t really care about the small details of my life?

Of course I trust God with the big things in my life, but does He really care about the “small” day-to-day stuff?

Was this belief preventing me from finding intimacy with God?

Over time we may start to forget just how much God loves us. I realized I needed to remind my spirit of this truth. God wants to be involved in everything in my life. He desires intimate communion with me (and you!).

Sure we must desire intimacy with God in order to achieve this, but I want to take it a step further. We also must realize how much God longs to have this type of relationships with us.

Our spirit must understand the God of the universe, the creator of the Heavens and the Earth wants to know everything about us.

For He even numbered the hairs on our head (Luke 12:7). That’s intimate! Let me tell you, it must have taken him a while to number every single strand of hair on my daughter’s head! I love reading Psalm 139 because it reminds me how much God deeply cares for me and how He wants to be involved in every aspect of my life. 

Finding Intimacy With God

So what about you? How do you find intimacy with God? Do you need to remind yourself of how much God loves you and desires to fellowship with you?

I want to encourage you to read Psalm 139 and reach out to God today. He will draw near to you when you draw near him. Also listen to one of my favorite songs about His desire to sit and talk with you (A Little Longer by Brian and Jenn Johnson). I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

 Psalm 139 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
